This book ALMOST made my list of best books I ve ever read I ve rarely been so swallowed up in a story since I was ten and read the Little House series Susan did a masterful job of making me care about Emmy and Julia and then well stringing me along on a horrific ride through the London BlitzAnd then And then we came to the last section of the book presented as journal entries and although there was no way I was going to uit reading at that point the story lost its momentum I no longer had a front row seat to the action And that action included the moment I d scrambled through war torn England to reach It was a good ending I was satisfied with how the story turned out but I felt robbed of the chance to be present for the climatic momentI wouldn t have minded so much if the book hadn t been so incredibly good I still HIGHLY recommend this book I just wish I could have been there when well you d better read it for yourself
