The author took me on a wonderful and unexpected journey in this beautiful and heart wrenching story.
It’s a coming of age story unlike any I’ve ever read.
The relationship between Gretel and Jakob is captivating. From the time they meet and throughout their story, I really wanted to get to know them. That’s how well written they were. I’m in awe of Irma Joubert, her character’s and her writing.
Spanning both time and continents yet focusing on Gretel and Jakob the author remains consistant on the love they have for each other.
This is a book that I’ll never forget and will eagerly recommend to anyone looking for the next great read.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and the Fiction Guild in exchange for an honest review.
