The Current Read – “Time and Regret”

From GoodReads:

“When Grace Hansen finds a box belonging to her beloved grandfather, she has no idea it holds the key to his past—and to long-buried family secrets. In the box are his World War I diaries and a cryptic note addressed to her. Determined to solve her grandfather’s puzzle, Grace follows his diary entries across towns and battle sites in northern France, where she becomes increasingly drawn to a charming French man—and suddenly aware that someone is following her…

Through her grandfather’s vivid writing and Grace’s own travels, a picture emerges of a man very unlike the one who raised her: one who watched countless friends and loved ones die horrifically in battle; one who lived a life of regret. But her grandfather wasn’t the only one harboring secrets, and the more Grace learns about her family, the less she thinks she can trust them.”

I’d mentioned to Els that the latest Maevey Book-craze is fiction set @ 1913 – 1930, so basically before-during-after The Great War.  It’s a fascinating time period, responsible for more of our current socio-politico-economic Clusterfudge than I had really appreciated.  Even thought it’s nearly killing me, I’m determined to actually SAVOR this read (they’re usually gulped and that’s exactly what’s going to happen when the new Patricia Briggs’ hits the Kindle).  There’s something about it – levels of detail I’m afraid to miss, but it’s nearly killing me.

Will post my own review once I’ve finished it and then name the Title On Tap.

One thought on “The Current Read – “Time and Regret”

  1. I’m never (and I mean never) reading just one book. So here goes.

    I am teaching a middle school writing and literature class this semester, and our first book is Anne of Green Gables. I read it many years ago, but I am enjoying it as if I were reading it for the first time. Such a funny, poignant book!

    I am also reading Economic Facts and Fallacies by Thomas Sowell. You know I love my non-fiction.
