From the first page to the final period, this WW2 story infringes on your emotions and its characters steal your heart. Kelli Stuart left a piece of her soul in this book and one cannot deny her accolades for the hours of research and contemplation given to its writing.
Ms. Stuart proves herself a stellar storyteller as she weaves the lives of Maria, Luda, Ivan, and Frederick. Not a huge fan of historical novels, Like a River, may have won me over.
I love the way the author gives the characters their voice, one chapter at a time.
If you are looking for a contemplative summer read, this is the book for you. Now available on Amazon, both softcover and Kindle versions.
