This book that I received from Tracy of Pleasurable Pursuits was one that she has not read yet but would like to read. Tracy, run...don't walk....and get this book. I really enjoyed it and I know you will as well.
The Plum Tree by Ellen Marie Wiseman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Plum Tree is a love story between Christine and Isaac that takes place during World War II. I almost put this book down to save for later because I had just finished Winter of the World by Ken Follet, which also took place during World War II, and I wasn't sure that my heart could take another war book so closely on the heels of the last. It was a fleeting thought though because I immediately was drawn into the lives of the two young people who only wanted what we all want, to live their lives in peace, love whom they want to love, have food on the table and family at their side. It was, I believe, an honest portrayal of the terrible conditions in war torn Germany and the surrounding areas. It is a book of survival and perseverence even when you can't see any light at the end of the tunnel.
I have now started Saint Odd by Dean Koontz. It is the last in a series that I am going to hate to see end.
