I kept thinking I might have already read this, but couldn't remember the details. Unfortunately, that is still the case. An interesting book, but not one I could connect to on any emotional level. It was like reading about some historical figure from another country. The lack of connection to the characters left me unmoved by a story that should have been tragic. Set in Nova Scotia, just before the outbreak of the second World War, the Museum Guard is interesting, but unaffecting. The characters interact, but rarely establish an emotional bond. The reader is left with the same feeling.
