Love this book...this author has a way of weaving characters in the past as well as the present that is totally addictive. This is the story of Annabelle during WWII. She loves Stefan...a married Jewish man...but marries Johann...a German man with possible ties to Nazis. It's interwoven with the more current Pepper's story...pregnant single Pepper. I can't begin to tell you how good this book is. Pepper and Annabelle are connected because of an old classic Mercedes.
