The book was lovely, a very gentle story and one that I really enjoyed. My only disappointment was that I had not read the first book, but no matter. The characters were warm and felt very real, and the emotions displayed in the book by Sophie & Nick could easily be identifiable.
Looking forward to reading the next in the trilogy.

In the book, we follow the life of Peter. How he would have coped and rebuilt his life; and found someways of dealing with being the survivor, when all his loved ones did not. In the book, Peter is wrestling with his inner self; he pretends that he is not Jewish, builds a wall of silence that even his wife and business partner can not break through.
This is a well pulled together, thought provoking book and one based on the word IF.
