Interesting read. Brief look into the lives of one family during the German occupation of Greece. Of course, since WWII went on for years, the book only holds a short period of time, hence no true conclusion but still very worth taking the time to read. Gives plenty of food for thought — “What if it happened to you?” This one family endures. They give food and shelter to resistance members, look out for their neighbors and struggle to maintain in spite of having their belongs taken by the Germans for their own uses, and having a German Officer has a houseguest. There are no choices in these matters, they are a fact of life.
Overall: I liked it.
