it was amazing

I wasn't sure if I would like this book since the main character's grandmother has Alzheimer's and I was worried it would be too depressing. It wasn't, though. In fact, Hope's grandmother reveals important family secrets because she doesn't want to take them to the grave. What the grandmother reveals are the names of people she left in Paris while fleeing the Nazis. I ended up learning a great deal about that time period in history and how family secrets can inadvertently impact other generations. I liked how uncovering her grandmother's past helped Hope learn to take risks again. I will definitely check out the other books by Kristin Harmel.
