Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum

Those Who Save Us - Jenna Blum

Interesting premise, poor execution. Very much like "Sarah's Key," with moving between WWII and the 1990s, and done in a similarly dull and irritating way. Things felt so false and unrealistic, and it got a bit tedious after awhile, so I just gave up after a bit.
