PART 1
BEFORE THE WALL CAME DOWN

West Berlin

"From the moment I accepted the invitation, I was nervous about returning to Germany. It had been so many years since I'd last been there, after all, that it was difficult to know what memories might be stirred up by my return."

I've been wanting to begin this one for several months and I'm so glad I finally did - such an addictive story.

What do you think? Have you ever tried this author's books before?
