Historical FIction

An excellently written and harrowing tale of the friendship between two women during World War II. Gripping and at the same time, hard to read. I don't really understand why the publisher coded this YA fiction, it certainly has adult themes and is appopriate for any age. Like your female characters to be daring and capable? Get this book!


This is a very good book. Funny, as well.


I could sense some of the twists that came (not in detail, just in direction), but the layers and connections were so intricate and multi-faceted that it was hard to imagine how someone could come up with all this. As soon as I was finished I wanted to start again, just to uncover some of that complexity - but I also wanted a break. And then it had to be returned for the next patron on the hold list. I have since re-read it and would gladly do so again.


Run, do not walk, and find a copy of this book. Suspenseful, touching, well researched.
