The Brass Dolphin

23rd June 2005

Because they are out of money, Lila and her father move to Malta from England, in search of a new life. After they’ve been in Malta for only a short time, World War II starts. Lila falls in love with 2 rich English brothers, and must deal with her conflicting feelings for them, as well as the struggles of war.

I’d love to visit Malta someday. This book provided an interesting perspective on World War II from a country that I don’t know a lot about. Although the plot seems fairly straightforward and typical for romantic fiction, the book is quite interesting, Lila’s character grows and changes, and the ending is not as predictable as most romantic fiction.
