I am not a huge fan of Historical fiction, although I do enjoy reading it when a really good one comes along, such as this book. I think I was attracted to this one because it was also a mystery, which I do enjoy and because I kept seeing only good things about it. It was
beautifully written, I really felt like I was in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation. The characters were strongly and beautifully written and I really felt their fear and despair of the time they were living in. I also enjoyed the twists and turns that the story took in the end, I’m usually pretty good about guessing where a story is going, but this was a bit surprising. In the author’s note at the end I was able to see just how much time and research she spent on the story, Monica Hesse is a journalist for the Washington Post.
