Description

ONE MAN. ONE CHOICE. TWO LIFETIMES.

A house fire, Vienna, 1933: thirteen-year-old Max is orphaned, disfigured and adopted by an Aryan family who change his identity – and his prospects.

A house fire, Vienna, 1933: thirteen-year-old Max saves his parents and escapes unharmed, to face life as a Jew in 1930s Austria.

In one unforgettable night, Max Spiegelman’s life splits in two. As war looms and Nazism continues to rise, Max is forced into choices that place him and his alter ego on opposing sides of a divided world. Tethered by their dreams, the boys watch helplessly, haunted by visions of what could have been. But in each parallel universe, they share a magnetic bond with an enchanting, grey-eyed girl.

The Two Loves of Sophie Strom is a profound story about how tragedy, choice and life-altering love shape our future.

What a unique and interesting concept for a book. I was so intrigued by the cover and I’m very curious to read the two different scenarios as well as find out the yesteryear of the “girl”. Will be sharing a full review and thoughts upon completion. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity.

Thank you Faber for the chance to read this excellent novel. I thought it was well written and had a great premise, once I got my head around the concept of the parallel lives of Max and Hans. The love story between Sophie and Max/Hans was compelling but perhaps more valuable was the way it generated questions about right and wrong, moral standards and how environment can dictate behaviour. I found it very relevant for today’s issues, notably the Middle East. A perfect book group title.

Such a unique and fascinating premise based around the sliding doors trope but made all the more profound by its powerful setting and time period.

An immersive reading experience and I was fully invested in Max/Han's story and the beautiful romance that wss full of longing between him and Sophie. Such meticulous plotting and accomplished writing that more than once moved me to tears.

Highly Recommended
