A great book. This was a well throughout book. It certainly makes you remember and think about our WW2 soldiers.
Thank you to both NetGalley and Amazon for my eARC in exchange for my honest unbiased review

I got really caught up in this story from the start. It is a part of history that I knew very little about. It is a hard read in places and the story has obviously been well researched and well thought out. In a lot of ways this is a sad story. Maud loses so much of her life due to events beyond her control. It is good that events in World War 2 are being remembered and talked about. 

Thank you to Netgalley for my copy.

There have been a lot of World War II novels published lately, and I believe in some ways it’s because we want to remember a time when we knew what we were fighting for, when the difference between good and evil was apparent for all to see. This story deals with the aftermath of the war and the personal devastation it brought down on one woman, now locked up in a mental hospital for a violent crime she cannot remember committing, As she revisits the past she does remember, Yugoslavia and the atrocities of the war there, it’s no wonder much of her recent memory is blank. She must find a way to reconstruct the memories she has chosen to bury, even if she risks uncovering something unbearable
