I have read many books both biographical and historical fiction about WW2.  In fact, I have read so many that the stories tend to sound the same.  I am not in any way attempting to demean the stories of those who survived and those who did not survive.  I have read few stories about  the invasion of Hungary.   This story  not only discussed the plight of survivors - although ultimately a far different plight from their fellow Jewish inhabitants of  Budapest,  the love story of the author's non Jewish father and her mother who was a member of possibly the wealthiest Jewish family in Budapest.   In some ways the book is written as a history book - lots of facts, quotes from newspapers, etc. and includes her father's memoirs of his service as an ambassador as well as love letters and family letters.   Basically with so much diverse information plus the author's opinions and interpretations for me the book did not flow well.
