Love, War & Everything in Between
on 18 May 2012
This novel revolves around twin sisters Natalie and Anna; their younger sister, Ilona and her daughter Mila. Mila is half-Jew and as the Germans invade Budapest, getting her to safety becomes easier said than done. Each character experiences a variety of emotions and in the well-crafted words of Suzanne Anderson, the reader follows their journey.
You feel their fear and you want them to be safe, but one cannot bypass the terror that they each feel. They have already experienced loss when Max, Ilona's husband passed away. The reader completely connects with this and understands that losing Mila is not an option.
Something about this book made me think of Anne Frank and while it was the same war, Mrs. Tuesday's Departure offers an entirely different angle in a different style. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a weekend read, and no you don't have to be a woman to enjoy women's fiction. This book will really keep you glued.
Offensive content?: Minimal adult theme and use of expletives(PG)
