Dear reader, I order the sequel and promptly followed the author on Twitter (her only social media, I believe, without being too stalkerish) halfway through this wonderful mystery. I loved the writing, the characters, the plot. I might have guessed at one plot line but was surprised in the end when the case tidily wrapped up. A post WW1 mystery dealing with “shell shock” and the lives left in the aftermath of it all.

The Road Back: A Novel | Erich Maria Remarque

Pickpick

The Road Back is a remarkable novel. It has the authenticity of a man who had personally endured and survived the mechanized slaughter of the First World War. There are many very poignant moments and Remarque gives the reader a very vivid impression of the many ways the First World War ruined a generation, both during the conflict and in the years that followed it.

4.5⭐️ I really liked it and for a 500 pg + book it was surprisingly quick to read. I really liked the edge of the pages and the cross-cut of a stump. It was also sort of strange to see Estevan, SK take such a prominent position in the book, as my paternal grandpa grew up about 4 hours west in Main Centre. Love the story and how trees are central to the Greenwood story. #2022 #bookclub #fiction #historicalfiction #canadian #bookreview

So, my friends returned to their home in Colorado a few months ago, and left me a few books to read. They are returning the end of the month, and I am trying my best to have read at least two of them before they return! This one is a chunkster. Luckily, I found the audio on Libby. Now, I can exhilarate my completion! #readingthebooksofothers
