I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was one of my most anticipated reads for 2019. I was super stoked when I got the notification that I would be reviewing this title. All I can really say is this is a magnificently heartbreaking story.
The story follows Miriam Winter who is caring for her ailing father. During this time, she learns of her father’s true past during World War II. There is love and sadness, and just so many emotions through the pages of this book.
Since I was young, I have always been drawn to stories from WWII. My great grandfather fought in the war and often I would ask my family members of his time in the military as he passed away when I was six years old. With that being said, this book spoke to me on so many levels.
This isn’t what I would classify as an easy read, but it is definitely a MUST read. Anna Ellory’s writing was so eloquent, emotionally draining at times (in a good way!), and heartbreakingly intense. I found myself torn at times from needing to put the book down to reflect on the pages I had just read.
I want to graciously thank Anna Ellory for her beautiful story. I also want to thank NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for the opportunity to review this title.
