Like a River

Like a River from Its Course

This is a World war II book which one can't but help loving. I am a fan of  anything to do with the Wars.  In fact I collect these kinds of books.  This one was  a keeper. Kelli Stuart's new book Like A River From Its Course is fiction but  what a thriller!  I felt like I was in the Ukrainian and German world since this book painted vividly researched pictures.  This  author really took time to research her material. I know  this because I have  read a number of very heavy , deep books on different  events from the Wars.Not always a fan of first  person accounts I was  not disappointed with this one.  I enjoyed following the stories of three characters.  Each one was a gripping, thrilling and heart breaking  at the same time. 

On a side  note some  mentioned they thought this book would be Christen but I knew other wise since having researched the author.  Also there was some romance in it  which I found to be refreshing but some of the  pre-romantic  notions ( very historical) are  not good for younger readers.  Some  of the  happenings I wish  had  not read  about.  But in all I would highly recommend this book to adults.

Based on true stories gathered from fifteen years of research and interviews with Ukrainian World War II survivors, Like a River from Its Course is a story of love, war, heartache, forgiveness, and starting over.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion
