This is an incredible duel-time novel!
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2019
I was captivated by both storylines in this book. The characters are amazingly well written and I was able to dive into their stories emotionally. I love the fact that it is a bible that connects the two time periods.
The future is the main time period. Ben and Ashley are both burdened with memories of addiction and the heartache that it leads to. They both love horses and are using that love to move on. They each need to learn how to let go of the hurt though. Their journeys intersect at many times throughout the story and I loved reading both of them. The information about equine therapy is fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about how both the horses and people can be helped.
At the beginning of the book Ben is given his great-great-grandfather, Andrew’s bible. As we move through Ben and Ashely’s story we get snippets from his life during WWII.
I’ve read a number of books set during WWII but this author has done a masterful job of expressing the emotions that surrounded this tumultuous period. She includes the feelings of parents, Jewish people living in the United States, and the young people whose lives were shaped by the war.
I absolutely loved this book and am giving it a rating of 5-stars. I highly recommend it.
