It does provide a slightly different perspective of the Holocaust and does give a picture of what life might have been like in several different cities during the war. I was not drawn in by the story and often found myself bogged down with the details. I wasn’t able to develop any real interest or connection with the main character and while I wanted to find out how her story would end, I did not find the book memorable. I felt some of the love scenes and romantic relationships throughout the book were unrealistic and unnecessary.
I received this book through NetGalley from Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
