This is a love story set in the horrific days of World War II. It is very sad. It displays the brutal realities of war...the ability to destroy lives not only physically, but emotionally as well. The ending does give hope to the human spirit and power of love. A good read. It will touch your heart.

One thing about Anita Shreve, much like her contemporary, Ken Follet, is her ability to place the reader in any place at any time in history. And while many of her books center on the East Coast area she calls home, this one is the exception. It is a tale of love, deception and the horrors of World War II as experienced by those under Nazi occupation. It also shows how one single event can alter forever the lives of the people it touches. And how not even love can overcome the forces set in motion by this event. As with all of her books, no matter the time or setting, Shreve does not fail to deliver a book that is impossible to put down.
