Salt to the Sea
Salt to the Sea was the first book in a long time that I read within a few hours because I simply couldn't handle not knowing what was on the next page. An emotionally gripping story with wonderfully diverse characters and an incredibly interesting insight into some factual history. Ruta Sepetys' writing is almost lyrical, bringing a grotesque beauty in her descriptions of dark times.
"The soldier stared at Ingrid. His silence was elastic, slowly curling a rope around her neck."
The Salt to the Sea is one that will linger in both the heart and the mind long after reading. I look forward to reading it many more times in the future!
