After my accident, people brought me books.
They know me well.
Here are five recent reads.
- 4/5 stars…. The Other Americans – It’s described as “at once a family saga, a murder mystery, and a love story, informed by the treacherous fault lines of American culture”
I don’t think I can better describe it. It’s told through multiple points of view – although I felt most “in” Nora’s story. Her father is killed in a hit and run and she’s convinced it wasn’t an accident. While investigating she moves home and falls in love with an old high school friend, who also happens to be a vet and a policeman.
It made me think about divisions of race, economics, immigrants, war and marriage all within one story. And… it’s a page turner
