An intriguing tale that tells a story over the span of many decades, through a grandmother and granddaughter as they experience Chateau d' Epines.
A film maker wants to make a documentary featuring the Chateau d' Epines, and requests that a family member meet him there. Gisele Duchant who lived there during much of WWII is too old, and her son Michael is too busy, so she sends her granddaughter, Chloe.
As Chloe explores, she uncovers secrets not only about what her grandmother experienced there, but also about her self.
This book is full of mystery and suspense. The setting is detailed, and the pacing and plotting of this story is excellent. I could tell that that author did a ton of research for this book, as it strives for historical accuracy while still weaving a engaging fictional account of the brutality and bravery of WWII.
This was a thrilling historical reading, with well drawn characters in both the past and the present. This book does a great job of bringing the times to life, and that's kind of what made it a little harder to read, the horrors of WWII.
Overall, this was a great book, full of intrigue, and fantastic characters. The setting was so well developed that it leaped off the page. A fantastic novel of France during WWII.
