    Salt to the Sea MOBI é Salt to PDF/EPUB ² ↠ MOBI biography books.co salt book, Salt to free, Salt to the Sea PDF/EPUBSalt to the Sea tells of four passengers on the ill fated Wilhelm Gusloff a luxury cruise liner turned into supply and medical ship last voyage on the Baltic Sea in 1945 The Wilhelm Gustloff is a tragedy greater than the Titanic About 9K died To tell this story Ruta Sepetys chose a really uniue storytelling mechanism Each chapter is short and builds off of one another because each chapter belongs to a voice of each character What I found really intriguing was that one character would describe something or have a convers

    Salt to the Sea MOBI é Salt to PDF/EPUB ² ↠ MOBI biography books.co salt book, Salt to free, Salt to the Sea PDF/EPUBI’ve studied World War II for years I’ve read countless books both nonfiction and fiction and watched a lot of documentaries My undergrad degree is even in history But somehow before SALT TO THE SEA I’d only heard about the Wilhelm Gustloff onceOne mention of such an immense tragedyI’m thankful to Ruta Sepetys for writing SALT TO THE SEA I always enjoy historical fiction that introduces me to something I didn’t know before which she certainly does But than that the author has such a deft confident hand that I could sense the amount of research she did and the respect she has for the survivors and victims of the Wilhelm Gustloff Sepetys doesn’t overwhelm you with her knowledge but inserts it subtly weaving it into the backstories thoughts and actions of the charactersSALT TO THE SEA is told through the eyes of four characters Joana is Lithuanian a nurse who always wants to help people in
