The story is told by Max and Lili at the beginning of the Second World War . Max is a German school boy and Lili is from a Romani Gypsy family , these two falling for each other would not be approved by anyone so they keep it secret . The story is beautiful and heartbreaking . Tragedy and hope linger throughout the story of this couples lives , each driven in opposite directions to an unknown future . This book had everything I wanted , very strong characters , hope , history , tragedy and love set in a troubled time .
