Throughout the book, Greta suffers from the feeling that she comes second to other people in Adam’s life. At one point, she chooses to be with him while he’s still married to another woman, and later, she feels that he prioritizes his friends over her. Can you relate to how she feels? Do you think that you would ever make compromises or take risks in a relationship like Greta does with Adam?

If I had felt the level of passion that the two of them had, I think I might have been able to make compromises. Perhaps only having a part of Adam was better for her than not having anything at all. And it is clear how much he loves her, even if she doesn't always come first.

I think Adam felt he was protecting her by not telling her everything. Of course, that would make her feel "left out." However, he wasn't above sending her out on very dangerous missions to transfer documents, etc. He did finally leave his second wife so he could be with her, so I do think he loved her.

I agree that it's clear Adam loved Greta, though I do think he should have told her earlier about the fact that he was married. I think it's possible that a lot of her initial hesitance regarding their relationship may not have been so much exactly about his relationship or family situation but about whether she felt like she could really trust him.

Good points all of you. It was extraordinary times and sometimes the people who survived it had to make compromises they wouldn't necessarily do in better times.

I can't really relate to this. I believe Adam truly loved her. I agree with the others that this horrible situation called for compromises.

Adam had lived a full life with two previous wives before Greta. I think he loved Greta, but was not used to having his wife be so involved in his decisions and actions.

It was such a stressful time for everyone. Sometimes I got frustrated with Greta but than I though about her doing things she had never done before and living in the conditions they were all under. Maybe Greta needed more reassurance of their love.
