If their love was not forbidden enough add on that fact that Elisabeth is the mother of four and a Nazi Officers wife, Felice is young and "submarine" a underground Jew. At the age of 80 Elisabeth breaks her years of silence telling stories, sharing poems, pictures and love letters to and from each other. All from diaries/journals. This book gives you much more than a love story but also gives you a very real history lesson. If you interested in the holocaust then this is a good book. It is very open, honest and has a harsh message.

At times writing was choppy and not a smooth read. Some stories were half told and then picked up later on in the book. Would have liked for the stories to stay together.
