I have always been interested in war times and the stories that are based around the second World War, thoroughly enjoyed this novel, would like to expand my comfort zone of romance novels to historical fiction novels. A slow starter, and a main character that I don t think I really liked.but, a great story I wanted it to end differently, but the ending was great It tied up all of the loose ends, if somewhat abruptly It also has a lot of history involved which I love.
