I cried and I laughed and I cried some more. Such a beautifully written love story set during the atrocities of war. The audio narrative is also very well read. I highly recommend this book I will be reading more by this author.
I can now get some peace! I couldn't put this down! I'm more informed about the atrocities man committed against man in the Second World War. Unfortunately they still go on today built on lies and deception!
