Pam Jenoff has turned into a reliable source of comfort reads (WWII) for me. By now she knows how to put you in that time and place succinctly, almost like your favorite airport shoes. You put them on and you know where you are going for the journey.
I did spot the villain of the story (besides the Nazis) pretty much straight away, so there is that.
I liked the underground line as a venue, the downed airmen, the safe houses, false papers, train rides, walks on foot, etc.
And if love triangles put you off, it's a big plot point, just be warned

If you'd like to read another WWII fiction that deals with a refugee ship turned away from American shores, I recommend Munich Signature by Bodie Thoene

This was the first book that I've read by Pam Jenoff. I enjoyed it immensely. It was written very well and the story line was exceptional. I loved all of the main characters and read each chapter with baited breath.
Grace finds an abandoned suitcase at Grand Central Terminal. Little does she know that the contents of the suitcase will change her life. She sets out to find the truth behind the photographs. She finds a story filled with deception, friendship and courage. A must read!

I really wanted to get into this book but it was pretty drawn out. It was also hard for me to switch between 3 time periods. I did like the main character, Charlotte. She had incredible strength.
Charlotte and Jack find themselves pursuing the truth about a case that involves a man accused of World War II era war crimes. In their quest for the truth they develop a relationship. Charlotte is hesitant to her feelings for Jack because she was hurt by his brother, Brian. They find the evidence they're looking for but time has run out.… (mais)
