This book took me by surprise. I really did not expect something so deep and moving, something so well written. I’d actually been reluctant to pick it up, because I thought it would be one of those books focused solely on World War II, but I’m so glad I did end up giving it a chance. There are two interconnecting plot lines: Kristin’s and Alice’s. The book goes back and forth in time (think The English Patient, not Time Traveler’s Wife) in such a masterful way that the reader is never confused. On the contrary, it’s hard to put the book down once you get past the first chapter. The war is always second stage to the relationships in the book, whether husband between a husband and wife or between two lovers. This is a collection of relationships. The writing is superb, stark and powerful. Once in a while the dialogue felt a bit stilted, but not enough to frustrate the reader. The way it ends, which I will not reveal, of course, is perfect, tucking in all the loose ends and leaving the reader with a sense of peace. This is a book I highly recommend to lovers of literary fiction. Beautiful book.

This book kept my attention throughout, never dragged as so many books can. Highly recommend.

This book was a pleasant surprise. Liked the parallel between the two women, their love affairs, and their deep seated sadness with what they did and how their paths crossed. Story flowed effortlessly in spite of going back in time on occasion. I just had to read up on the famous artist after I finished the book.
