Salt to the Sea
Joana is from Lithuania, and was branded a deserter when she fled her homeland in 1941. Florian is a Prussian, who is carrying a priceless piece of stolen art, and somehow managed to escape being recruited in the army. Emilia is from Poland, a land which Hitler considers inferior in every way. She carries a traumatic secret with her, one from the farm where her father sent her to be safe. Alfred is an annoying sailor who keeps lying to himself that he will get a medal. Alfred is useful when the group of travellers want to get on board the Wilhelm Gustloff. The story in this book jumps around a lot, moving to a different characters point of view each chapter.
This book was very sad, especially at the end, and I would give it 8/10.
