This is the first book I have read by Pam Jenoff and what a lovely surprise! This book was much more than I expected in every way. The main characters were interesting and their stories well told, the situations were heart-breaking and the locations were particularly evocative, from the hardships of life in war time USA to war torn London and beyond. I was gripped by Addie's story from the beginning and read the book in two sittings as I really did not want to put it down. This was an emotional journey through the lives of all the characters and the traumas that both bring them together and divide them. A really interesting and emotional read. Highly recommended. Thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review.
