to @aimiekrunyan on the release of from @lakeunionauthors!
Genre: Historical Fiction
When Beth follows her dad’s dying wish to look through his WWII war memorabilia, she discovers a family secret. Will they be able to find the woman in the photo before it’s too late?
“It’s not hopeless… You’d be amazed at how much can be found with a shred of information, a fistful of determination, and a dollop of luck.”
Alternating between two timelines, Across the Winding River follows Max as he meets Metta, a member of the German resistance, while working as a medic in World War II and his daughter, Beth, in 2007 all the way until the two story lines converge. As always, I enjoyed this author’s writing style, and I teared up twice towards the end. If you love serendipitous stories full of love and hope, then try this one.
“Max, there are precious few people in this world with a good heart like yours. It’s worth protecting. More than almost anything else, it’s worth keeping safe.”
If you want to read more about female pilots during WWII, then I would highly recommend Daughters of the Night Sky (4 stars) by the same author!
Location: 2007 Encinitas, California and WWII Germany
