Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Read March 2 to 3, 2017
I loved so many things about Salt to the Sea. What a splendid and remarkable story this was for me.
Salt to the Sea is told through four intertwining perspectives from four different backgrounds, allowing us to see the four different points of view of the events as they unfolded, using short characters. I loved the easy and fast chapters that carried such a punch with each chapter and character. What made this a remarkable read for me was the characters. Each had me feeling a different emotion as I learned how they came together, how some characters connected to form a bond and came to care for each other.
Salt to the Sea is a stunning and captivating story of a tragedy, that had me understanding the horrible things people are capable of but also seeing the kindness and sacrifices others will make for each other. Highly recommend!.
