The author was doing a book signing at the local library that I just happened to be at that day picking up some dvds. I'm a sophmore in high school, so I read the occasional book, especially when it's not assigned in a classroom. The author was nice and young like myself, which I thought was really cool, because most authors you meet are like my parents age.
She told me all about the book, was wrapping them for the holidays, people bought them for stocking stuffers, which is really cool idea. I bought a book. She signed my copy. I like romance novels, but had not read one set during WWII.
It was incredible. I loved it. I felt like I was the heroine and absolutely fell in love with the two main heros of the book. I didn't know which one I wanted her to wind up with at the end, I liked them both so much. Best historical fiction I ever read!
It was a very easy read, moves along at a fast pace, and not long, which I love. I don't like to read epic novels of hundreds of pages, I wouldn't have the time, plus it could never keep my interest to read something that long. This was just perfect.
I learned a lot about that time during the war, and it almost seemed like I was reading a non-fiction book because it seemed so real, as if the heroine was real and had gone through this adventure and romance through the war.
I wanted to let other teens know that this is not just a book for adults, but for young adults too. This will now be one of my favorite books along with the Harry Potter series and the Twilight series, which are really easy, fast reads, which I most enjoy.
I wonder if the author will write another? I already signed up on her website, which I thought was cool, she actually responded back to me and answered my questions and I signed up for the emails when she updates her blogs and talks about her books and writing and stuff. So cool. She was nice and down to earth, most celebrities are not!
