Well narrated and captivating story.
I read Ruth Druart’s first novel and went straight on to this one which I have also enjoyed. She has a knack of making the reader become part of the characters in the story which stimulates the readers own emotions and helps form one’s own opinion as to how the characters respond to the events they face. What I have enjoyed from the novels is the historical setting, which can then be researched more factually and therefore I have learnt a lot about what happened to the people living through that time from different perspectives. The soldiers, the families, those occupying Paris and those occupied with all the trauma they faced. This book is well narrated and provokes feelings of sadness, anger and intrigue throughout…right up to the end. I look forward to the next book by a Ruth Druart.
