My current literary obsession: The Invisible Wall
By: Harry Bernstein
This book breaks from the traditional war story by zooming in on an English street just before World War I begins. Told from the naive perspective of a young Jewish child, the novel looks at the way in which a war and tragedy can bring people together. In addition to showing how a mill town suffered during this time and how that brought both the Christians and Jewish people living on one street together, it also contains a heart wrenching love story that definitely makes this book a page turner.
This is a great book to cuddle up and read with a good cup of joe.
