Yes, a great story ruined by it's dragging length. I could have done without the grueling on and on writing and repeated back and forth.....Too much story ruined this story!

The fact that the plot should be made into a movie isn't lost on me at all. I have to give it to this author for her amazing creativity in that regard.

The story about a Czech child shipped with Jewish refugee children to South Africa during WWII to be fostered by a childless Jewish couple is a very integral part of this multi-faceted plot. Near the final days of the war a few years later a German submarine off the coast of the same town is destroyed and a young German naval engineer is rescued and taken to the local hospital for treatment. This is where the next part of the plot becomes important and very interesting. As they say, the plot thickens when romance ensues. The main characters are numerous and the story shows great promise...... and then stagnated as the years go by. Unfortunately, or fortunately, based upon one's personal opinion, I found myself reading through the boring middle of this book until, once again, the storyline sparks and flames into an amazing last third of the story. I have to be honest and admit I was glad I forgef ahead to the finish line. Definite five-star plot!! Too bad that boring middle wasn't edited better. Would have made all the difference.

With great sadness and desperation, adventure, action and drama, romance and revenge, cruelty and tenderness, and secrets galore, it's definitely worth the read even with the stagnated middle. So I give it three stars to balance what could and should be a five-star book.

I recommend to readers of historical fiction with the aforementioned caveat. Definitely worth the read if one can get through the muddy middle.
