My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book weaves a tale between the lives of two people who have experienced trauma. Mouse has lost her ability to speak and prefers to stay in her silent world. William spent most of his life living with a guilt from the end of the war. In a series of letters which Mouse finds, William’s story unfolds, while Mouse tries to keep hold of her own fragile world, their lives intertwine. I must mention the book cover, lovely flaps made good bookmarks and the embossed cover was very tactile, I found myself opening the pages with care not wanting to crease the cover.
