Review Author: stubbsy



One of the best books I have read in a while. The flow of the story is brilliant and the fact that it was based around real events added to its authenticity. I have been to Terezin and it left me haunted for days but all the descriptions in the book accord with what I learnt there. A book you can’t out down and I shall look for this author again
