Recommended Read - Beside a Burning Sea by John Shors

Beside a Burning SeaBeside a Burning Sea by John Shors
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was attracted to this book because of its setting during World War II (a time I think we should all remember for the lives lost on every side), but after only the first chapter I became even more drawn in due to the complex and beautiful characters and the vivid writing. The emotions expressed by the characters were raw and real and you could almost taste and feel the lush yet treacherous surroundings. The story flows quickly and this was a book that I couldn't put down so I read it all in one setting. A truly beautiful work!
