You know it is a good book when you open it for the first time and then, in what feels like only a minute, it has been three hours, you're halfway through the book and your dog is begging you to take her outside. For me, Tipton is an escape. A way to fantasize about how life was during WWII, before there were computers and Facebook and our entire life was documented online. However, the struggles Anna goes through are timeless. The way she longs for companionship and the mistakes she makes is something everybody can relate to. Life is messy and Tipton reveals that in the most beautiful way possible.
