If you like romances - does he love me? does she love me? (rinse, repeat, repeat) then this novel might be your thing.
But if you think this will be a decent war novel with a plausible story line, then you will be sadly disappointed. Ridiculous plot holes, including: a) the U.S.'s assessment of Soviet strength is primarily based on letters between the two lovers where she mentions conditions in Leningrad, b) laughably lax security as our two main characters travel around wartime Russia, etc.
I loved this book. I could not wait to come back to it. I loved that it followed up with a historical notes, as well, discussing the fictional vs historical aspects of the story. I generally do not enjoy stories that switch perspectives, but this one was done particularly well. I felt as though it greatly enhanced the story to gain insight into each character's perspective.
Saskia does a great job with the performance, as well. I actually came to this book after doing a search of other books she had narrarated because I liked the last one of hers that I listened to.
