The premise seemed interesting, but I didn't feel as enthused once I got a few chapters in. I wasn't always convinced of the time period, partly due to the language, and it felt like a lot of heavy-handed telling rather than showing right off the bat. After several tedious conversations, some clunky turns of phrase ("a tiara of sweat?" really?), and a liberal sprinkling of ten-dollar words throughout, I had to bail.

an excellent read with great insight into the aftermath of WW2 on Germany when it was divided between the British, Americans and Russians. the novel focuses on a British Colonel and his family sharing a house with a German officer and his daughter and the quietly understated storyline pulls one into the ensuing relationships which are intriguing, sad and ultimately freeing for the people involved. Probably the best novel I have read for a long time.
