The Diplomat’s Daughter is in part a story of love, but is also a story of hope, tragedy & survival. I read scenes unlike any other I’ve read before & also learnt things about the war that I did not know before. This book is beautiful in every way & Karin Tanabe has done an incredible job with it. I was given an advanced copy of this book to review & I cannot say how glad I am that I was. This is my favourite read of the year so far & I have a feeling it will still hold that spot by the end of the year.
