|I just find this book to be meh at best, and infuriating at worst. I, personally, cannot relate to this main character. Lillian is definitely neurodivergent, but her ND presents as calculating, single-minded, strategic, and cold. This isn't necessarily bad, but it does make her selfish, and I cannot relate to this. My neurodivergency is near opposite to Lillian's, and I cannot image betraying my sister, let alone my twin in the way Lillian did in this book.
I didn't really find the story that believable, either, especially Lillian's interest in a man who abused her sister. Maybe this story is accurate to events in WWII, but reading this book did not give me confidence that this is how events played out.
I'm sure that there will be readers who enjoy this story and can even relate to Lillian, but I am not one of them. Hopefully, our patrons who check this book out will find the story likeable, but I would not rush to recommend this book to them.
