Val! ♥

I was so excited to see that you'd posted another chapter of this story so soon - I had fun review bombing you!

The situation that Astrid has been forced into with teaching in this school is both intriguing and worrying at the same time. I definitely don't want to underestimate her (and I know she must survive if I'm right about her being Fleur's grandmother) but I don't like the fact that she's alone in the midst of all the German soldiers. It's a dangerous place for her to be, especially as she doesn't have anyone there to help her. I liked the fact that you haven't made Lieutenant Schröder out to be completely inhuman, because it makes his character seem more real and believable. It's so easy to forget that in the midst of all the fighting, a lot of the soldiers were just ordinary men who were trying to survive and help their families survive.

Still, I'm not sure where this strange sort of relationship with the Lieutenant is going to lead for Astrid. I have a feeling that it can't end well, but I really can't tell what's going to happen. He has obviously realised that she isn't a sympathiser, but I'm not sure if he'll realise that she's part of the Resistance as well. I can see her being told to get close to him and spy on him or something like that...

I'm actually still amazed by how well you handle the scenes with Simon trapped inside the concentration camp. It's such a hard thing to write about, and you do it so sensitively and yet are able to help me imagine what it really would have been like for people at that point. I love his determination not to die as an animal, because it must have been so hard at that point. The bleakness of the atmosphere and situation came through really well.

I am shipping Camille and Xavier so much right now! All of these little moments when they're beginning to get closer and comfort each other again are so cute. I can tell that it seems natural to them to help each other and they're having to try hard to resist that... I just want them to get together, but I've got this awful feeling that things are going to go badly for them and you'll break my heart.

I also loved the little details in that section that showed even though they're not in a concentration camp or fighting on the front line, they're still suffering with not having enough food and fighting amongst themselves. It helps to remind us that the war touched every part of people's lives and they couldn't avoid it even if they wanted to.

Simon and Sarah! When I was reading about what had happened to Esther I genuinely had tears in my eyes - it reminded me of Schindler's List and the scenes from that. The images are so powerful.

Even though I was really upset about Esther, I can't help being relieved that Sarah is still alive and that Simon has some of his family left. I liked the way that Simon had to bribe one of the women to get Sarah for him, and that she was so suspicious; it shows that the conditions they were forced to live in meant that only the struggle for survival mattered. I definitely didn't expect there to be a wand hidden in the toilet brush! I have no idea how it got there and I'm not entirely sure that it isn't some kind of trap, but I really hope that Simon and Sarah have truly managed to get away, and I can't wait to see where they end up.

I'm impatient I know, but I'm looking forward to the next chapter already!

Sian :)
