I really enjoyed reading this book as it had an interesting plot that kept moving and developing without being predictable, and such good characterization that it was very relatable to me...

Synopsis

France: February, 1944. Arianne knew Luc as a child, of course she did. Everyone in Samaroux knows each other. But he's been away, and five years really makes a difference to a boy. A young man. As they fall headily into love - first love - their world starts to crumble around them. German forces are closing in, and the village is torn between cooperating to save themselves or putting up resistance and entering unknown danger. Arianne will do anything to make Luc stay. Luc wants to prove he is a man. And Romy, who has loved Arianne all the time that Luc has been away, can see a way of removing his rival, at any cost. How far will they go to protect what they believe in? And what will they do for love?

I probably wouldn't read this again - it's just not my type of book...I didn't mind the book but it made no real impact.

...The Things We Did for Love is an impressive fable about the loss of innocence and the consequent descent into hell.
