One of the worst books I have ever read. It is criminal to compare this book to The Nightingale. Yes is takes place during WWII and yes the main characters are women, but that is where the similarities stop. The WWII characters are flat, immoral and unlikable. The death scene of one of the characters is totally out of the plot line. The story is very choppy with lots of time in between chapters. A total waste of time. Too bad my library spent the money on buying this book.
