An entrancing tale from two sides of the same war. I couldn’t wait for each to meet the other; a shame their togetherness was fleeting. Short chapters kept the pace easy, and the writing was beautifully descriptive. I can’t imagine the movie could possibly top the book.

Loved the book but did not like the ending.

Fantastic. What a feat of writing, to juggle so many (seemingly) disparate storylines, keep the reader engaged with each one, and weave them all together in the end. I want to write a book like this.
