Review: Letters From Berlin by Tania Blanchard
Letters From Berlin is a compelling, though often heartbreaking, novel. It matters not how much time marches on, the events of the Second World War were horrific in every sense, and Blanchard successfully brings the sense of heartbreak, and the complex emotions experienced by the ordinary people of Germany who were caught up in a horrific war that they neither approved of, nor wanted, to the page. The decisions that Susanna make are tough throughout, and make for an emotional read. So too is the reality that so many people, and families were separated due to the war. The ending is quite touching.
