As their love affair unfolds over the next five years, the climate drastically changes in Germany as Hitler comes to power.

This book deserves all the big adjectives like sweeping, epic and devastating. Hanna and Max's story is told in such an engaging way. It is historical fiction with a little sci fi, a lot of violin and an epic love story. My favorite from Cantor so far.
