Salt to the Sea

Salt to the sea is a very thrilling journey told in 4 perspectives of 4 different characters. The characters are: Florian, a Prussian thief, Emilia, a young Polish girl, Alfred, a selfish German soldier and also Joanna a Lithuanian nurse. The story tells us how our 4 characters meet aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff and it describes to us their relationships and each characters thoughts and how they all are trying to escape from the war between Germany and Russia and have a better life. This is a very fast-pace book leaving you on edge every time you turn a page. Ruta Septy has written a masterpiece which compares if not surpasses great historical-naval books like the Aubery-Maturin series by Patrick 'o' Brian
