How have I been lucky enough to come here, to be alive, when so many others are not? I should have died. But I am here.

My Rating:
Quick-Thoughts:  WWII meets romance and eye-spy.
I loved this book! This romance set during World War II is another story about perseverance, hardships, and hope. We see a bit (a lot) of romance, a bit of espionage, and lots of well-developed characters. Though it is a sequel to The Kommandant's Girl, it stands alone quite well.  While there are sad moments, it isn't depressing.  In fact, I think there are fewer sad moments than other novels set during WWII.  The ending is unrealistic and does the whole bow-tieing thing, but I didn't mind at all. Here's an inspiring story, with great characters, and exceptional writing.  Read this if you enjoy novels set during World War II and a bit of adventure.
