The skilfully told tale takes us back to wartime and unravels the stories that threaten to negatively impact Werner's future.
A wonderful story which weaves together fact and fiction into a powerful tale of loss and redemption.
I approached the book with a little doubt, having just finished a vaguely similar book that completely engrossed me. I thought this one might prove a disappointment.
It’s a well told tale that moves between the end years of WWII to the 1950s, and into the present day for the book - the 1970s.
The story unfolds out of sequence as the storyline goes to and fro. It takes an age for the main thrust of the story to become apparent, and the final denouement wasn’t clear literally until it happened, and even then I was left wondering ‘is it or not him?’ right up to the line.
At times I felt there was just a little too much narrative, but overall it is a very readable story that also gave me greater insight into the historical basis for the story.
I haven’t described the story itself; better not to. Just read and enjoy.
This atmospheric and engaging story is deeply embedded in the New York scene of the late 60s and early 70s, dropping names such as Andy Warhol and Jimi Hendrix with whom Rebecca is on first name terms with thanks to her wealthy and well connected family. These scenes are juxtaposed with the chapters set in Germany during the bombing of Dresden and its terrible aftermath when a fatally injured woman gives birth to a child.
The story is tied up quite neatly in the end thanks to some rather convenient co-incidences but overall it’s a very engaging and interesting read which tells the story of some of the 20th century’s most horrific events from an original angle. Congratulations to the translator too for a convincing and skilful retelling of this French novel.
Great stuff. I would read more from this author.
