Happy Sunday, folks! In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to answer questions from the OTP Book Tag. This tag was originally created by booktuber Kirstin Reads and, as the title suggests, it’s all about OTPs (since nobody actually has just one true pair, am I right?).

Quick Synopsis: Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies…and war. As thousands of desperate refugees flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom. Yet not all promises can be kept.

An illuminating and life-affirming tale of heart and hope.
