My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have never been one to read Historical Fiction. I'm more of a Chick Lit kind of a girl. But, as I age my preferences have changed slightly. :) And even though this book wouldn't have been my 1st choice for a Historical Fiction to read, I have always felt a kinship with the WWII Era. So, I was eager to start reading as soon as soon as it arrived. Unlike others who enjoy and read this type of book all the time, I have nothing to compare to it really. But, I do have some knowledge of the time period. This simple story of two Sisters, their Family, the struggle, sacrifices and their hardships mixed with triumphs, hope and desires to survive this war.
It was interesting to see the lives of this Family alongside the terror of the war that was going on at the time. I haven't read a book with this type of perspective before, The French Women during the War. It was insightful and has opened me up to learning more . Reading always opens windows and doors to knew things, ideas and destinations. This was a great book that did all that for me, I'm no expert in this genre, but I read it from beginning to end and enjoyed, looking forward to reading more of her work. This would be a great book to start with if you want to experience a little Historical Fiction.
*I received this Book for free from SheSpeaks.
