patient in an insane asylum in England but she is struggling to figure out how she ended up there With the help of her doctor she slowly regains her memory and remembers her time during the war as a secret agent working in Yugoslavia How is it all connected The main issue I had with this book is for about 3 4 of the story I just did not feel a connection with the main character which is weird because you would think the combination of someone in dangerous situations because of the war and being in an insane asylum would get me to feel something But the writing just left me with this empty feeling, as if something was missing Thankfully, things start to come together by the last part of the book I just wish it hadn t taken so long to get to that point There were a few instances in which I thought the author waited too long to explain something or glossed over completely To be honest, I think the premise of the book was unique but the execution wasn t the best If I m comparing it to other World War 2 historical fiction, it s not the most compelling However, if you are looking for something a ittle bit different especially one that gives you a bit of a history lesson on what was going on in Yugoslavia during that time period, this is a decent pick flag 51 likesLike see review View all 9 comments Oct 06, 2018 Anita rated it it was amazing This story totally captivated me from

author switched from first person telling to third person in what I felt was very effective in moving the focus from the woman being in the institution to the time that she was recalling in the past The movement in time often happened quickly, but I always knew where the story was This is not an easy story in that it deals with the hard times in a war zone There is some insight into the very complex history of former Yugoslavia It is not a book for everyone, but I did feel that the material was covered sensitively while still giving a sense of the trauma endured by all involved in such a struggle The story itself was what kept me interested, not just the desire to know what actually happened I found the characters, their values, and their decisions to be very good reading flag 5

spoilers To view it, click here its a very engaging story about a brutal time in europe s history The story of her deployment seems very realistic and plausible I suffered with the characters but thats expected in a good book I don t know why she would train so much for a 4 month deployment that doesn t make sense She wasn t removed because the war was over If she was doing such good work she would have stayed.But what I don t like is that the last part of the book just isn t true to the character Robert maybe, but its a very engaging story about a brutal time in europe s history The story

learn about the conflict between the Serbs and the Croats, I found that parts of the story were slow It was convoluted in parts of the book, as well as having several incidents that never seem to

this speaks to society s treatment of mental illness, as well as women in general Such a resilient young woman turned complacent, the fight lost within her I would ve expected for this character after all the past details that emerged to paint her as a remarkably brave and daring individual Instead, the plot just settled then disappointingly jumped than half of Maud s life to conclude Although it could be argued that the book generally gave way to a happy ending, the last chapters seemed a bit casually thrown together Despite my feelings toward how the book concluded, I d still recommend it to

    1. Now and again I ve been known to read an historical fiction book This one was historic plus a lean towards being a thriller.I was attracted to the cover of this book I know I know but what can I say Although at times the story appeared slow and the unravelling of it all sometimes too slow for me, I did enjoy this very much.The main character finds herself locked away with patients in an asylum But she hasn t one iota of a clue how she got there and why.It was interesting how the author pee Now a [...]


    2. There is no shortage of World War 2 historical fiction on the market, however there are a few things that make this book stand out among the others First, some of the story takes place in Yugoslavia which isn t a setting that is normally featured in this genre The other thing that makes this story a bit unusual is the main character is a patient in an insane asylum a few years after the war Looking for something different is what made made me choose this book for my free First Reads pi There is [...]


    3. This story totally captivated me from start to finish The author managed to have me see it happen from the perspective of the young woman who is totally confused about what has happened to her and whether or not she is sane At the same time I had no problem following along with the story, because it was very clearly told The author switched from first person telling to third person in what I felt was very effective in moving the focus from the woman being in the institution to the time that s Th [...]


    4.

    5. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here its a very engaging story about a brutal time in europe s history The story of her deployment seems very realistic and plausible I suffered with the characters but thats expected in a good book I don t know why she would train so much for a 4 month deployment that doesn t make sense She wasn t removed because the war was over If she was doing such good work she would have stayed.But what I don t like is that the last [...]



    6. I have read numerous novels set during WWII and have thoroughly enjoyed most of them, but I never really connected with The Lines We Leave Behind. Having the main protagonist a patient in a mental asylum a few years after the war made for an interesting plot, but it never delivered Much of the book was slow and I didn t trust Robert from the start I felt that the author glossed over Maud Amber s training before her deployment to Yugoslavia as well as the danger she faced once there I also [...]
