I bought this on the strength of the reviews but was sorely disappointed. It was a bit like sitting on a bus listening to someone chattering away with details of their life, really - I am not one for wanting to know the minutiae of other people's existence.
Once I got the gist of the plot (?) I just gave up listening. - I felt that I was intruding into someone's space.
Certainly not one for me, I kept waiting for some purpose to be shown, but there was none. A pointless tale!

I too read this on the basis of previous reviews and was disappointed. The plot is a standard WW2 story about love and loss and the impacts of decisions we make. I was expecting more insight or some form of revelation that would surprise me but the story was quite predictable. I just didn't find it very interesting and kept getting distracted. I spotted the one plot twist a mile away. I'm assuming we are meant to draw parallels between the narrator and her grandmother whose story she uncovers but it is not particularly enlightening.
