Awesome story! Plonked into the turmoil of WWI, we meet an interesting cast of characters. A well-known violinist and playboy, a group of London pick-pockets, a pair of well-to-do sisters, a couple of shady characters who leave us wondering if they are friend or foe, and one of the pick-pockets who can play the violin by ear.
We agonize over the occupation of Belgium with those who have been exiled and with those still in the country. We meet some of the German invaders and try to decide which ones are evil and which aren’t. We get to hide out with the main characters in Wales, listening to the music. And we learn about forgiveness and second chances. Well worth the read!
I missed the first book in this series, but I’ll be picking up a copy soon.
