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.
The book was sent to me by Netgalley for an unbiased review, courtesy of Troubadour Books.
I never have been able to figure out how to blog from my iPad so kudos to you for making it happen!ReplyDelete
I agree - the tech issues of using an ipad or iphone are beyond me!ReplyDelete
I use my iPad to blog exclusively now. It’s not perfect but it is convenient.ReplyDelete
Have a great reading week
I don't have an iPad and don't even try to blog on my Kindle Fire tablet. I can only imagine it would be difficult.ReplyDelete
I haven't read this particular book, although I do enjoy World War II books.
