Wow! This is another WWII historical fiction book … my favorite genre. And the fact that it is a dual timeline story makes it even better. The atrocities of Hitler’s regime are witnessed by Tiena, the primary character. Her bravery in recreating herself and yet becoming a part of the French resistance. Though her life takes a turn for the worse and she has to face the consequences of her actions. I learned a lot about the Roma Camp and having Emma interview Tiena (known as Angéline De Cadieux) was a wonderful addition. This is a heartbreaking story that will stay with you long after you have read the last word and gently closed the book.
