I really enjoyed this, started on Friday and couldn't put it down! I was gutted to have to go out for the weekend. Wasted valuable reading time :)

I loved how it is based on real events and real lives, even so the characters are fictional I still haven't given up hope on a real Lily Nelly Aphrodite did exist. I enjoyed the authors' use of language, it was filled with colour and description. I liked that she didn't go overboard with the history or show off withthe research which can quite often happen in historical fiction. My one criticism, for me, there's one or two too many characters and I sometimes struggled to remember who everyone was (that's possibly just me and my appalling memory).

I read a few reviews on Amazon, reviewers criticised the book for being too dark and sad, but it's based through WW1 and Nazi Germany. Maybe the reviewers were expecting puppies, marshmellows and Lily to find a nice youg man to give her babies and rid her of all her woes? . . .

Thank you for sending this Ossiefry and I will get sent 'Marked' asap :)

I had never heard about this bookcrossing thing before I found this book. It's simply amazing! I can't believe that this book that I have on my bedside table has been on a travel for over 10 years! I'm currently reading it and I have enjoyed it a lot. The writing is very captivating, beautiful and melancholic at the same time. I'll come back when I finish the book!
