I've always found it difficult to post from my iPad reviews, but I'm going to try.
The setting of WWII for stories is always emotional and evocative. There is so much courage, bravado, grit and determination shown and at the same time the lesser attributes of betrayal, cowardice and envy and very often the more basic " fear for your life" and for those around you.
This story encompasses all that is a girl of mixed background who found herself in circumstances and places beyond her control and displayed a sense of compassion to the dying which was not understood by all.
Displaying courage way beyond her 18 years our heroine is made of sterling stuff.
Slightly different to the usual settings of WWII.
