I could read and understand the reading easily. However, I found some unfamiliar words like rabbi, heirs, and respite.
|2||21 September 2017||Chapter 1 (18-39)||22||My room||39 minutes|
The love story begins and I am excited!!! I visualize the characters in my mind all the time.
|3||24 September 2017||Chapter 2 & 3 (40-70)||30||My room||52 minutes|
The problems appear. The love story is getting complicated. It upsets me. Anyway, I feel there is no unconfirmed word.
|4||26 September 2017||Chapter 3-4||24||Ajeng's room||40 minutes|
When I was reading, it was about to rain at that time. The gloomy day brought me to the situation in the book even further. Beata, the Jewish girl from Germany, left her house because her father was mad at her. She fought for Antoine, a Catholic French man.
|5||26 September 2017||Chapter 4 (95-104)||10||My room||20 minutes|
There are some unconfirmed words such as synagogue, communion, and mairie.
|6||2 October 2017||Chapter 4-5 (106-136)||31||My room||1 hour|
They got married😭.
Unconfirmed words : gnawed, profoundly, scolded, and nagging.
|7||6 October 2017||Chapter 5-6 (137-152)||16||Indonesian Red Cross Society batch Solo||26 minutes|
Beata and Antoine had a child named Amadea. They moved to Germany because the war was over.
Unconfirmed words : waltzed, beamed, albeit, and crumbling.
|8||7 October 2017||Chapter 6-7 (152-197)||45||On motorbike, when I was on my way to Wonogiri||1 hour, 26 mins|
I WAS SHOOK. Antoine was dead so suddenly. The marriage is not long enough. Beata had been devastated and so had I. It's such a disaster :(( it's painful. They deserved to be happy though.
However, Beata had started to be close with her mother. Her mother wanted to come to visit Beata and her two children.
|9||7 October 2017||Chapter 8-9 (198-222)||25||Somewhere in Wonogiri||1 hour|
Beata's mother had died. It's even worseeee.
I feel so devastated.
Why though :( .
|10||7 October 2017||Chapter 10-11 (223-244)||22||My room||50 minutes|
After Beata's mother had died, her first daughter, Amadea, asked her permission to become a nun.
Beata didn't want it to happen because it means Amade will leave home and live separately with them.
From this chapter, I realized what "echoes" means.
The pain that Beata felt was as the same as what her mother had felt. What Amadea did was as the same as what Beata had done. There were repetitions and it felt like de javu.
I cried a river like a big baby. I felt as if I was Beata. The pain she felt couldn't leave my mind.
|11||10 October 2017||Chapter 12 (245-255)||11||My room||32 minutes|
Nazis had started vanishing the Jews. Beata was worried about her family.
This made me felt a little bit curious, but I was sleepy so I slept.
|12||11 October 2017||Chapter 12-14 (255-279)||24||Kedai Kepo||47 minutes|
There were repetitions written by the author. Fortunately I'm not bored yet. I still want to know what would happen.
In this part, Nazis had already taken some Europian countries. Beata met her former maid who recognized her. Seems this would get more complicated.
|13||12 October 2017||Chapter 14-17 (280-315)||36||My room||1 hour, 11 minutes|
Nazis had taken Beata and Daphne. Few months later, Amadea, Beata's first daughter was also taken by Nazis after she had been out of the convent.
Things were getting complicated. I'm angry yet numb. The Nazis were so cruel.
|14||12 October 2017||Chapter 17-19 (316-385)||70||My room||2 hours|
There's no more Beata and Daphne. Amadea had been trapped in a camp until finally he could escape to Czech, Prague, and then France.
I am just disappointed that the writer doesn't explain more about Beata and Daphne, knowing that Beata was the main character.
Everyone had died. There were full tortures and fear.
Yet this book is addicting, I haven't watched some movies due to this book. I just hope something good will happen in the next part, not a despair.
|15||13 October 2017||Chapter 19-21 (386-411)||26||My room||41 minutes|
Amadea was in France. She met a guy, then they fell in love.
Afterwards, the guy died by the explosion. She was in grief, like her mother had been.
I think this is also the echo.
This is sad, though. The writer should let the characters happy for a long time.
The real life doesn't happen as we what expect sometimes. Then why same thing goes in a fiction.
That's my opinion, though. I go too emotional. Sorry.
|16||14 October 2017||Chapter 22-23 (412-445)||34||My room||1 hour, 16 minutes|
Amadea was on mission.
I still wonder what will happen. I just hope she wouldn't come back as a nun when the war was over.
She deserves to have a family. Let's see.
|17||14 October 2017||(Chapter 23-26) 446-477||32||My room||51 minutes|
Amadea was not able to walk. She was wounded because of an explosion. She sat in the wheelchair. Rupert, her partner in the mission, came visiting her.
She helped Rupert to take care of 12 children who had been the victims of Nazis.
I was shocked that Amadea was paralysed. I was hopeless and thinking that the story would have a sad ending.
|18||14 October 2017||Chapter 26-28 (478-492)||15||My room||30 minutes|
Amadea lived with 12 children and one nanny while Rupert went on a mission. It'd been long enough for them to get knowing each others which made them fell in love. Rupert was on mission for about three months and it made Amadea worried. Surprisingly, he came home and Amadea could walk again. They got married and hopefully they lived happily ever after.
I love the ending. At least Amadea didn't get any more torture and sorrow. She deserved to be happy.
What I am sad about is that I don't know what happened to Beata and Daphne. They were taken by Nazis but there was no clue whether or not they lived.
However, this story is awesome.
I don't want it to come to an end, though. It feels like my soul still stucks in the story.
