Being able to sit down with a warm cup of coffee or tea, and a book to read is one of my favourite things to do. I actually think that I would be able to read all day everyday; if theres a job like that out there, someone please let me know!

My most recent literature adventure took me into 1939 Germany; and more specifically, the life of one particular family on Hitler’s Mountain; Berchtesgaden. For as long as I can remember, I have taken great interest in the events of the Second World War, and only in recent years, have I started venturing out to read about the perspectives of surrounding countries during this difficult time. This book, takes us through those difficult years of war from the perspective of a young girl, as she discusses her, and her family and friends daily routines during the wartime.

I don’t like giving too much away about the plotline, but I do want to say that the storyline involves just the right amount of history, intertwined with a personal story. As the reader, I was able to learn about the realities of wartime in Germany, but also, the atmosphere based on the feelings and thoughts of a young child.

For anyone who is interested in reading about the Second World War, I would definitely recommend this book to you. It definitely sets a different perspective on the events which occurred, and specifically, the lifestyle of the German population during this time.
