A Life Apart is more than a simple romance between two young men. It’s a story about love, friendship, treachery, years of longing and war. It’s a story with interesting and memorable characters, some I loved and some I didn’t. It’s a story which takes you on a journey where you finally – after lots of ups and downs – get your happy ending.
So why only 3.5 stars? Because at first it took me a while to get into the book. There were parts I found a little bit boring and they couldn’t hold my attention. Other parts were so gripping and exciting I couldn’t stop reading. But this is just my personal opinion. :)
If you like historical novels and men in love mixed with a good story, then A Life Apart might be the right book for you.
