Salt to the Sea

This is a truly amazing book which will leave a huge impression on everyone who reads it. It follows the stories of four young people as they try to escape the war, their journeys entwined as they leave their homes and families behind, like thousands of others at the time, and face dangers which are unimaginable for most people today. The most shocking thing about this book is that it is based on true events, ones which are often overlooked or completely forgotten today. Although the characters in the story are fictional, the hardships they face and the lives they leave behind are real and experienced by thousands from across different nations and backgrounds. This book, although sticking to facts, is certainly not a dry historical essay. It is an emotional story and shows what is best and worst in people. You will find yourself getting to know the characters throughout, regarding some almost like friends, and their sorrows will bring you to tears and their hopes will become yours.
