Another great review of the book. Thank you Rebecca Csatlos for taking the time to read and review my book. And thank you for the 4 stars! Happy 2013!
I was recommended this book by a friend of the author. I have never been much of a reader of historical books and facts, however I was quite pleasantly surprised when I finally got stuck into the intertwining story of Greta and her family, extended family and friends.
It seemed a good portrayal of life for the Jewish community throughout Europe during the start and course of the second world war…nothing which I can remember being taught of at school. Although this is a fictional story and in parts not quite as beleivable as I would have thought, I can see that the author has made a great effort to show the reader what turmoils families endured to remain in contact with their loved ones, which must have been quite some feat considering the displacement of Jews after the war had ended.
Congratulations to Christoph, for what must have been many long hours researching details and information to ensure that the plight of the family was made ‘real’ to the reader.
