Wein does a good job here of picking a specific perspective on WWII that we don‘t get too often, making her characters come to life, and gracefully navigating that line of how devastating does it need to be to tell the story faithfully, and how redemptive does it need to be for the sake of the story.

When Winter Comes | V.A. Shannon

When winter comes and they're calling for over a foot of snow, you read and eat snacks. I decided at the last minute to join in the #JoyousJanuary #Readathon @Andrew65
Plans:
Finish the #YAbuddyread Code Name Verity
Read my library hold Flight of Dreams before it has to go back.
Read two winter-themed books, In an Instant and When Winter Comes.

Andrew65 Great to have you with us. Good luck.😊👍 4d
