Tamar's strange name was given to her by her grandfather. Searching for the reason behind his suicide, she uncovers the story of three Dutch resistance operatives-Dart, Marijke, and Tamar (her namesake?). While fighting to defeat their Nazi occupiers in World War II, the three fell into a tragic romantic triangle, with generational repercussions. Is there anything sexier than doomed resistance fighters in love? For fans of Casablanca (starring Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, 1942). Why It Is for Us: This book's wartime setting, flawed characters, and complex narrative structure make for an incredibly satisfying read.
