This is not a book I would have chosen for myself. I read a lot of fluff, a lot of chick literature.
I don't read many books where the main character is a man. I read this book and followed this story through his eyes.
Andras Levi is a young Jewish man from Hungary who leaves home to study architecture in France. The year is 1937 and the war in Europe is building. I followed Andras through two years of school, going home to Hungary, starting a family and finally being shipped off to represent a side in the war that despises his kind. It is a heart wrenching story that made me laugh, cry and scared for his future as well as the future of his family.
From the start of this book, I was engrossed. I couldn't wait to have time to read more. I remember thinking several times... "this can't end well"
It's a great book. I highly recommend it and I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to read it.
I am an Army wife and mother of five. I have been married to my Soldier for over ten years and we are currently in our fifth duty station since getting married.
I started later in life with my duties as an Army wife but have tried to make up for it by soaking up as much information as I can. I had some wonderful mentors as I joined this journey and now I want to pay it forward and mentor others.
I started this blog to document my life as an Army wife, mother, volunteer, and one who is trying to make this blended family a great one.
I love to cook, bake, and be a complete internet geek. I'm learning as I go, but as I tell everyone, knowledge is power, so I keep digging for more information!
