But Konstantin learns of the affair and promptly dismisses Kay, leaving her penniless and stranded in Nazi Berlin.

Review by

Ich kann es eigentlich kaum erklären, aber obwohl das Buch viele Personen verknüpft, die durchaus interessante Dinge erleben, fand ich es unendlich langweilig. Ich hatte extreme Probleme bei der Stange zu bleiben. Das Buch spielt im 2. Weltkrieg und schildert die Erlebnisse und Lebenswege einer kleinen Gruppe von Menschen. Wenn man schon Bücher über diese Zeit gelesen oder mit Zeitzeugen gesprochen hat, ist der Roman sehr vorhersehbar. Ein schwaches Buch der Autorin.
