    I agree with it being a tough read at first. I struggled with it, but kept going. I borrowed the book from the library and I’d like to buy it and re-read it. The characters definitely leave a lasting impact, and this is a rare book that actually shocked me by a plot turn I didn’t expect. I mean, I just figured things would kind of work out, even though we’re dealing with Nazis. This is a really intense book that requires your attention and effort, but like you said, it’s worth it. Not a quick read, but a worthwhile one.

    And the notes from the author at the end! She loves history so much and it really shows.
