Tamar

When Tamar’s grandfather dies, she finds out he left her a box containing a series of clues and coded messages. These lead her to discover another Tamar from the past, a resistance fighter in Nazi-occupied Holland a century before. His story is one of passionate love, betrayal, jealousy, and tragedy against the backdrop of the daily fear during the second World War, and unraveling it is about to change her life forever.

I thought this was a very well written book. I enjoyed it because it is about a side of World War II that I haven't often read about-the Dutch resistance efforts.

This is a very adult book. The subject matter makes this book for probably ages 15 and older.
