"You Are One of Them" by Elliott Holt. The book takes place during and after the fall of Soviet Union and the main character Sarah, goes on a journey of discovery to find out the truth about her childhood friend's fate. The book deals with themes of abandonment, fear, "what is truth?" and centers during the height of the nuclear arms race. I really enjoyed how the author concluded the plot.
I typically check out the historical fiction section. I love history and I love learning about past events through the views of fictional characters.
The last book I read was "Girl from the South" by Joanna Trollope. The book takes place in Charleston, and I'm looking forward to visiting areas in the city that were mentioned in the book. Yes, I do recommend it. The main character Gillion, tries to find meaning in her life beyond the social pressures of her wealthy family.
