Rarely do I give a book 5 stars, but this one definitely deserves it. The author has the incredible ability to take a horrible time in history, write..Show More » about lives and love lost, and yet make us smile at the end of the book. This book was incredible in my opinion. I loved it. The character development made each person come to life and helped us either love or hate what was happening. Adele's strength, trials and ability to overcome are amazing. I highly recommend this book!
