The story is very well written and absorbing. Enjoyed it very much.
Once more a great book from Susan Wuthrich. After reading Portrait of Stella, I knew I would have to read more by this author. As with Portrait of Stella, this tale is full of twists and turns, and written in two different time lines, which Wuthrich is able to do very successfully. The research put into both books is amazing.This book covers the cruelty experienced by prisoners sent to work in the ukrainian salt mines, and the poverty and deprivation of post war Europe, as well as Eve's trials b [...]
Susan Wuthrich’s WWII saga is a riveting description of life immediately after the war. The author cleverly portrays how civilians coped with postwar difficulties in England, and the degradation of interned prisoners at the hands of Russian Forces in Poland. Ms Wuthrich moves her narrative back and forth between the 1940s and 1970s, giving the book a great depth of interest and contrast. Her characters, both good and evil, are well defined with great interaction between the main protagonists. [...]
Rays of sunshine burst through!A heart warming story.23% spacing be home68% after all spacing74% spacingThis is a terrific tale, full of intrigue, suspense and twists and turns. The storyline is very believable, happening as it does in the chaos of post-war Europe. The shifting viewpoints were very interesting, and Harry's diary made for some very powerful writing. It almost reminded me of Solzhenitsyn's writings of the gulags and Mila 18 by Leon Uris. Babi Yar was also reminiscent of this kind [...]
I started this book thinking, from the blurb, I knew what was going to happen. Boy was I wrong! The story is riddled with the unexpected. First the daughter's declaration she had been molested by her step-father as a small child. Close behind came the second shocker, (can't reveal what it was because of spoilers), but it drives the reader to turn the pages until the story is finished. A Family saga/mystery well worth reading.
I loved reading this wonderful novel, full of intrigue and page turning suspense. The author fully engages you into the complex lives of Eve and Harry, and you want there to be happy ever after endings. I will be recommending this novel and the author Susan Wuethrich to all my friends.
Another Kind of SunsetWhat a great read based on the years after WWII. The characters of Ilsa, Eve, Harry, and the rest of those in the book are well developed. Once I started to read, I could not put it down.
