Praise for Oranges for Christmas
One of the best books that I have read. Kept me in suspense until the end.
Well written in an easy flowing style, the author makes the upheaval and uncertainty of the time come alive.
This story transports the reader to the Berlin of the 1960’s and you connect immediately with the characters and their story, a fantastic read.
Margarita Morris vividly recreates a desperate time, with great sensitivity and amazing attention to detail. With warm characters and a roller-coaster plot, you will be on the edge of your seat right until the end.
The descriptions of both East and West, the oddities of a split city, and the switching of narrators made it difficult to put down. A superb read.
Well researched and gripping to read.
This book vividly portrays what happened and what should never ever happen again.
