I did not expect to fall into this book at all. The subject matter initially left me feeling very aware of how this could be very poorly done.

Instead I found an enriching read with fully fleshed out characters. Hannah is definitely a female character to be proud of, displaying strength and vulnerability very realistically in situations which seem quite intense and are written in vivid detail.

The beauty in this is the way in which history is fleshed out with characters who feel as real as those who were actually there and using real people to make it all the more interesting.

This is a read for anyone who loves historical fiction.
