A lovely, lovely read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet (Paperback)
This is such an enjoyable read, which deserves to be a bestseller. I haven't recommended it to anyone who doesn't agree.
Enough has been said by previous reviewers regarding the plot. Suffice to say that it is beautifully written story of thwarted young love, never oversentimentalised or mawkish. The research is impeccable and highlights the after effects of war on innocents.
There are many finely drawn supporting characters who would warrant short stories themselves.
My favourite read in 2010. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
