When her grandfather dies, Tamar inherits a box containing a series of clues and coded messages. Out of the past, another Tamar emerges, a man involved in the terrifying world of resistance fighters in Nazi-occupied Holland half a century before. His story is one of passionate love, jealousy, and tragedy set against the daily fear and casual horror of the Second World War -- and unraveling it is about to transform Tamarâs life forever.

The details about the horrors the Dutch endured under the Nazi occupation educated me about something I never knew.
I believe Peet's handling of the material is well-suited for both adults and young people.
The author did a good job of showcasing that people who try to do good can also cause great harm and that good people are capable of terrible things as well as good things even when fighting evil.
The plot line set forward in time was not as engaging to me as it was easy to figure out exactly what was going on there and where it would take us. I suppose as a form of foreshadowing for the WWII portion of the book it worked ok, but I was just not as interested in that portion of the book.
All in all however, the writing was good, the characters likeable and believable and I think it was well researched.
