Salt to the Sea

Joana, Florian, Emilia and Alfred are four young people from four different European nations ravaged by the second world war.
The book follows each character’s journey toward the Wilhelm Gustloff, an overcrowded ship that seems to be their only hope of escaping the Red Army. As each character fights for their survival and their stories converge, we discover how their lives have been shaped by tragedy and betrayal and how they are all still haunted by their pasts.
This book is at start confusing but after reading for a bit the reader really gets lots of different emotions and feelings that are mostly sad. I like this book as it shows a number of perspectives. However, this book has a sad ending.
