This book was amazing. I fell in love with every aspect of it. The story was incredible and the way it was writing was phenomenal. I wasn't even ready for what this book was going to be. I loved how we were reading both from the past and the present and that they converged at such at important point in the story. My favorite character in the story was probably Jutta. She understood something so big at such a young age that took her brothers years to get. Although it was a story about the Holocaust, it was written in a completely different way. I'd never read anything like it. I really feel like I barely have any other words than I loved it!

Well I know I’ve been TERRIBLE at writing reviews and keeping up with finishing some of the books, but I did finish this one and I’m so happy I did! This book was beyond amazing. Seriously.

As Caro stated previously this book was written in a pretty unique way and coming from different perspectives from main characters throughout the book. I truly appreciated how the reader is able to view the war from two different sides of the war (France and Germany). I think both main characters were fascinating to read about and their journey leading up to *spoiler* the moment they met.

Towards the end of the book I think it was extremely moving how the author tied everyone’s story to one another and discussing how the aftermath of the war has had a long lasting impact on each of the characters’ lives. I think it was pretty cool how each one had some sort of connection to one another because of one of the main characters.

This book is seriously an incredible read and I would highly recommend taking the time to read it.
