Sonali V Kani she, how did you like Farthest afield. I read a review and want to read it. Sounds interesting but I need it to be well-written.

It gives you a personal perspective of WW2 through the eyes of a few friends and family. It is very beautifully written and creates its own world of its characters involvement in the war. It walks on the line between fiction and non-fiction. But you tend to struggle when the narrative shifts from a personal to a broader perspective with all the war details pouring in. But its definitely a good read.
