I highly recommend this book. It was beautifully written. The novel tells the story of three German widows of WWII who are brought together from circumstances after the war. The way the author switches time periods and point of view in different chapters really keeps the reader interested and allows the story to develop. Each woman has such a different perspective, that you really see how deeply an entire generation was affected by the Nazi regime. The change in time period allows characters to reflect on the decisions they have made and lets the reader see the same events differently with the progression of time.
