How Did it Take Me So Long to Discover William Boyd?

Waiting for Sunrise was a flat-out outstanding, page-turning, brilliant novel. I was riveted from the first page onward.  Set against the backdrop of WWI in Vienna and London, the book follows the life of Lysander Rief, a young man who is an actor and becomes ensnared in a passionate love affair.  The book then takes a sharp turn as the protagonist enters the war and becomes involved in a special mission.  This book was intriguing on many levels and while I thought the parts about the war dragged on a bit, it held my interest and was quite riveting.  I will definitely be reading more by William Boyd soon!  It delights me to have stumbled upon a new author.
