    Highly recommend this book!

    As I started to read, I have to say that I was put off at first by the interruption of what I thought was a great story by the odd bits of present-day narrative that seemed to be randomly added at the end of each chapter, but by the end it made complete sense...

    Told from the perspective of Pepik's nanny, the story paints a picture of just how unbelievable and unexpected to individuals the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia was, until it was actually upon them, and too late. It was a world where you had no idea who to trust and how to make your way, and the author, Alison Pick, is able to capture that feeling of uncertainty and heartache. At the same time, she is able to capture the innocence and wonder felt by a five year old boy, watching trains and his nanny, who loves him as much as she would her own child.

    You know from the outset that history has already dictated most of the ending to this book, but there are still surprises in store for the reader and as sad as the book is, there is also joy and gladness present. This book will move you in many ways and it will shed light on a period in history that needs a spotlight. For me this was a very quick read and I absolutely could not put it down (except to reach for the Kleenex box) If you read historical fiction, you will want to read this!

    I received this book from the publisher for the purpose of completing my review. All opinions expressed are my own
