3.0 Tamar: A Novel of Espionage, Passion, and Betrayal
I read this book back in '07/08, because I (luckily) lived next door to Mal Peet and he gave me a copy a couple of days after publishing and I absolutely loved it.It is a beautiful story of love, betrayal and life of two soldiers during WWII. I'd give it a shot if I were you.
