's review

it was ok
bookshelves: europa, oh-loyd-i-wanna-be-hearkbroken, wwii

interesting interconnected novel of characters who intersect, more than once, starting in wwii. so there are french orphans, usa bomber pilots, retired, english nurses, german soldiers. some beautiful writing, but sebald did all this better. here the characters are paper thin, the coincidences a bit "chicken soup for the novel-reading soul". a fair go at literature, but really just a 21st century normandy beach read. Austerlitz and doria russell is more historically accurate A Thread of Grace
