I read this book almost non-stop. It's written with so much heart and skill. Multiple topics, all well-crafted: meticulous historical background, well-rounded, realistic characters, dramatic legal thriller, so much emotion, and a harrowingly beautiful love story to boot. Not to mention the concept of pursuing noble goals in one's career (legal profession.) Ben is an unforgettable character.

A gripping novel. However, the narrative format is so very similar to the author's book " Karolina's Twins" which I had read and enjoyed. I think if this is the only plot line the author is presenting, I wouldn't persue more books by the author.

Great read. I got into the characters and enjoyed the historical journey. I've read many WWII historical novels and this one is on top of my favorite lists.

This story alternates between the current day and a time span around the second World War. My only complaint was a bit of the dialogue in the the current day story felt weak. This was a very limited problem and otherwise the writing felt fine to me. It was a captivating story and offered an involved plot with lots of character engagement. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to be immersed in a good family drama type story.

I loved this book. It was very well written with lots of twists & turns. I found it kept me on the edge of my seat. This was the first time reading one of Ronald Balson's books & I just loved it. Found it very interesting from a historical point of view as well. I also found it to be a rather refreshing & new approach to WWII stories. I would recommend it to those who enjoy reading historical fiction books.
