The author, Mandy Robotham, does a wonderful job at writing historical fiction books. I have never read anything about the Berlin Wall, so I was looking forward to learning more about this time period. I enjoyed having the viewpoint of Jutta and Karin. The author does a great job of presenting them as normal individuals who are vulnerable and you like them and their approachability. I did not find the style of writing appealing. However, it was emotional to read how the Berlin Wall affected families in many ways.
