Salt to the Sea

Thief. That is one word you could use to describe Florian.
Murderer. That is one way to describe Joana.
Emilia, you could say, is a liar.
Alfred sent the girl he loves to be tortured.

In 'Salt to the Sea', all four of these characters cross each others' paths and don't realise it, but have one thing in common. They have all suffered from the brutality of war, one way or another. I really enjoyed this book and the four different perspectives made the structure interesting and unique. I think the author captured the real harshness of war while still portraying the small acts of kindness which had a much more significant effect amidst the themes of war and death. I highly recommend this book to anybody who is interested in historical fiction or who is looking for a fantastic book!
