I really wanted to like this book, but it was just such a hard book to follow. The scenery and timing would change without any warning. It would take me a few pages to figure out, oh this is during this time or this is not at the hospital or just whatever. It just seemed to jump around with no rhyme or reason for me.
I also thought it was going to be more about the war, but that was like a chapter with a few mentions here and there throughout the book. And the chapter didn't really say a whole lot.
I was also disappointed that towards the end of the book, Elsa and Frank are still children, albeit a little older, then next thing you know, there are a few pages discussing the rest of their lives and the book is done.
I see all the great raves for this book and I'm glad that people felt that way, but for me, it was just meh.
Thanks Penguin Group and Edelweiss for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
