    A great story

    The opening is as fragmentary as memory itself, but an orderly image begins to develop. As an adult, the narrator finally uncovers the truth and describes his parents' story. There are many wartime stories Mr. Slouka's, however, is special.

    Remarkable

    Having read hundreds of books, this one stands in my top ten. It's a story of courage, romance & dedication to one's convictions. Having been to Prague-there is a statue outsied of the city dedicated to these brave men & one can view the church in Prague where the story has its final ending.

    Beautifully written, compelling story

    I always appreciate well written historical fiction and I have to say, this is one of my favorites. The narrator, the son of Czech survivors of World War II and the occupation of Prague, tries to piece together the story of his parents during the war, and especially his mother's relationship with a resistance fighter. It is written with beautiful detail and incredible character portrayal. Even minor characters are compelling and well written. A very touching and emotional story, highly recommended.

    Not very engaging.

    Still reading this after 2 weeks. I found the premis for the story interesting, but it is very long and drawn out. Really kinda boring. But still reading and still trying to get engaged.
