Allow me to let you in on a little secret....I always have a hard time rating books as '5' stars. Similarly I have issues with giving a book '1' star. I feel like extremes are wonky with books. I save the '1's for excruciatingly painful books, and '5's well, it has to be damn amazing and touching.
That being said, and given that you have eyes, I've
given this one 5 stars. The flow of this book is amazing. The weaving
in and out of the present day and the past is amazing. The
interconnectedness between the two stories is beautiful.
Personally I'm a HUGE fan of the WW2 era, so much to learn and something that should never be forgotten.
Rosnay has a way with words, and most definitely storytelling. She strums our heartstrings at the end of the book.
Truly beautiful, very well done.
