"While I had heard of orchestra's in the camps, I had only heard about it. This story did more to flesh that vague memory out. In addition, I did not know that prisoners performed outside of the camps. Was wondering if this is true in…"
"At first, I was not as interested in Adele's story as in Sera's story but as the book progressed I was equally enthralled by both story lines. The author did a wonderful job in both story lines.
The one thing that I found fascinating was…"
"I grew up on the Sound of Music where the main characters, who are Austrian, fled their country when the Nazi's took over. It was just so jarring when Adele's parents were so pro-Nazi. So in this regard, it did alter my opinion. I also…"
"I messed up and got the November book instead and then read Nora's warning and did not get the October book. Nonetheless, in answering the question about calling, I have struggled with this all of my life. I felt called to be in the medical…"

"I can't cite specific page numbers but in one letter, Juliet commented on how long the letter was (to Sidney) and that he did not have to reply in kind. Again, when she writes to Sidney telling him of her upcoming marriage, I love the way…"
"I agree wholeheartedly with Juliet. It is so easy to fall into that trap. As a single Christian woman, I have had plenty of people tell me what a great catch someone is but that person does not share my values and so is not a great catch to me.…"
"I love the book.
This is my second time through and I also saw the movie. I did not think that the movie stayed very true to the book but since the book is all letters, I can give grace to the screenplay writers because letters are hard to adapt to…"
