Synopsis:
"1992: Leo Deakin wakes up in a hospital somewhere in South America, his girlfriend Eleni is dead and Leo doesn't know where he is or how Eleni died. He blames himself for the tragedy and is sucked into a spiral of despair. But Leo is about to discover something which will change his life forever. 1917: Moritz Daniecki is a fugitive from a Siberian POW camp. Seven thousand kilometres over the Russian Steppes separate him from his village and his sweetheart, whose memory has kept him alive through carnage and captivity. The Great War may be over, but Moritz now faces a perilous journey across a continent riven by civil war. When Moritz finally limps back into his village to claim the hand of the woman he left behind, will she still be waiting?"

Journal Entry 7 by Sonnenbarke at Pescara, Abruzzo Italy on Saturday, September 24, 2016
This book was given to me as a present by a fellow bookcrosser two years ago, but I hesitated until now in reading it because I thought it would be oversentimental and ultimately not my cup of tea. As a rule, I don't really like love stories, although there's been exceptions. This is one of those.

There's no denying this novel is oversentimental, but it is so in a good way. It is of course a love story, or rather, two love stories, so there's bound to be sentimentality in it. But it is also a story of war, because one of the two main characters, Moritz Daniecki, is a survivor of WWI, so he recounts his experiences in the war.

This is a novel on love, or better on the loss thereof. Leo loses his girlfriend in a terrible coach crash, while Moritz loses his sweetheart when he's forced to go to war. There's a lot of absences in this novel. That's what makes it so tear-jerking. (There's no denying it is tear-jerking. I weeped my heart out while reading.)

I can definitely recommend this novel.

Ciao!
Sono felice che tu abbia deciso di venire fin qui. Ti spiego un po' come funziona.
Il libro che hai trovato non è stato dimenticato, ma è stato lasciato libero volontariamente. La comunità dei bookcorsari infatti pensa che i libri non vadano lasciati a prendere polvere sugli scaffali, ma che vadano fatti girare, affinché possano portare emozioni in giro per il mondo.
Sarebbe bello se decidessi di lasciare un commento dicendo che hai trovato il libro, mi piacerebbe sapere che è in buone mani e conoscere la storia di come lo hai trovato. Per farlo non è necessario registrarsi. Dopo averlo letto (o anche senza averlo letto, se non ti piace) sarebbe bello che anche tu lo lasciassi in giro da qualche parte.
Se decidessi di registrarti entreresti a fare parte di una grande e bella comunità e in più potresti seguire il percorso di questo e di altri libri da te registrati e liberati.
A te la scelta e intanto... buona lettura!
