This is a very believable World War II story of the worries and fears of the women of Berlin in Germany, circa 1943. The main character is drawn into an awareness of the cruelties being perpetrated, in most instances , to others she knows and meets in her ever growing circle of women. You feel the suspense of being watched and needing to watch out. Also interwoven into her life are the men she likes and those she loves.
A gripping and powerful story you don't want to put down.
