I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

I gave this one three stars only because the premise of the story was a good one. You don't hear much about this particular aspect of WWII. The author missed the opportunity to attach the reader to the characters. There were a lot of ways she could have really invested the reader and in a rote, mechanical way she walks through the story line methodically without ever creating that imperative emotional attachment. I appreciated the research behind it but as far as stories go... well, this one went right in the give-away box.
