Salt to the Sea

This is a breath-taking book about the devastation of the Second World War.

One thing that stuns me about this book is that it is based upon real events, I can’t even imagine what those unfortunate people were put through in this depressing time.

Salt to the Sea has four main characters, each haunted by a dark secret; guilt, fate, shame and fear.

One feature of the book that I thought made it more interesting was to change the perspective of the story being told every chapter, this way I knew all of the characters' emotions.

All the iconic characters in this war page-turner have very different personalities and strong characteristics that you won’t forget.

This lovely literature ticks all the boxes on my list and I thought that this book has few flaws, and is my favourite book so far!
