this book was advertised as ww 2 era historical fiction with scripture in it as well . This book I would describe as some left over apartheid from south Africa . This girl was poor and her father was a drunk and she wanted to make something of herself and she certainly did and did well for herself and others she helped . I will not say more than this because it will give away too much of the book . I certainly did enjoy this book very much and learned a lot about history of the war in different parts of the world .It is very much worth the read and I highly recommend it .I want to thank booklook for sending me this copy in exchange for my honest review .
