Salt to the Sea

Salt to the sea is all about the 1945 German evacuation attempts when the Russians tried to invade Germany. This is a compelling and emotional book about the lives of 4 young people (Florian, Joana, Emilia and Alfred) all trying to board the same evacuation ship,The Wilhelm. This book shifts from the different perspectives of the 4 main characters. For example one of the characters Florian may call someone Lithuanian and them someone like Joana will call them by their real name. This is a very interesting book but can be sometimes confusing. None the less a must read book that should not be ignored.
