Secrets of a Charmed Life
Book Review - Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner
On my way back to Chicago this morning I finished "Secrets of a Charmed Life" by Susan Meissner. I hadn't intended on reading two books in a row set during WWII, but I'm glad I did. Both were excellent. This story is about two sisters who were separated during the blitzkrieg in London and the small decisions each of them made that led to the separation.
There is a quote that stuck with me from Chapter One, two characters are discussing the importance of history, "What good is remembering an event if you don't remember how it made you feel? How it impacted others. How it made them feel. You would learn nothing and neither would anyone else." I thought this book did an excellent job making me feel the history of WWII (as evidenced by the tears I shed, especially at the end.)
It is no secret that I am a big fan of Susan Meissner's work. Any time she comes out with a new book it instantly goes to the top of my list. If you enjoy historical fiction, check out some of her other books:
