A Boy in Winter - Rachel Seiffert

In a small village in the Ukraine in 1941, things are about to change as the Germans arrive, changing the lives of five different groups of people.  Forced to make impossible choices, the fear is real and everyone is scrambling to try to save themselves and their families.

Although a short novel I did find the changing narrative a little hard to follow and I could not quite see the characters in my mind. 3/5

A good idea can be undone by its lacklustre execution. Too bad.
