Lilac Girls - Martha Hall Kelly

Damn I wish this book was better written. I suppose technically, it's not poorly written but the characters all ask way too many internal questions to the point that it stands out and makes me roll my eyes and sigh.


I'm not sure why we get so much of Caroline's POV since the rest of the book deals with Poland and Germany and she's solidly concerned with France and her married would-be boyfriend. She gives us so much information about society and her troubles as an unmarried 40-year-old woman when I want to stay with the other story lines. 


There's other stuff that's bothering me but I'll hold off on that until my full review.
