This book was interesting. Different, and I liked that about it. The main character changes so much throughout the book, you can almost feel her growing along with you as you read. Some parts were a little slow, but overall a worthwhile read.

The novel covers 2 time periods. It starts with WWI in a German occupied French town and then fast forwards to current day London. The war years are written masterfully with tension and amazing depth of character.
The current day London is trite with its love angle (I love him, I love him not, ad nauseam) and the ever-evolving court case that took way too long. I gave it a 3 for the war years but would have to give it a 2 for the rest.
