I love WWII stories and was really excited at the opportunity to read this book. However, it was too all over the place! There were a lot of characters to keep up with and the story itself was not engaging. The story jumped all over the place … from one time line to another which made it very confusing to follow. I was sorry that the book was not as wonderful as I had hoped. While the author did a lot of research, she needed major assistance in getting that down on paper in a pleasant way that would make the reader care about the characters.
