Salt to the Sea

Salt to the Sea is based on the true tragedy of the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, a not so well known piece of history. The story is told from four alternative perspectives, with each character telling us their own story and emotions, of the events that took place. These characters were running from the Russian army at the end of WWII to the coast so they could board the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promised safety and freedom.
Ruta Sepetys is an incredible author and has a gift of re telling hidden history in her books. I would recommend this book to anyone who seeks drama and adventure of any gender from 11 onwards.
