I finished and I have to tell you that I was really disappointed with this one. I am going to give this book 4 stars for the story and the way that it seemed to focus on many of the German victims of WWII, especially the women and children.
I had such high hopes andd all was going well, in my opinion, until Trudy and Rainer hooked up. I realize that Trudy was searching for validation, understanding etc...but this just did not seem to fit with me.
I really felt that the book started to spiral down down down after that. I was hoping to find out more about Ruth and about Thomas. I felt that those two characters were very under utilized. The ending was just two contrived for me with meeting Felix Pfieffer.
