Review: Tangled Ashes

The beginning was a little slow and confusing because it kept switching back and forth between a different time period/scene (think each other chapter of Grapes of Wrath), but after I got past the first few chapters, I couldn’t put the book down! I tend not to read the little summary on the back of books, so I really didn’t know what to expect. Head over to our review blog to read more about Tangled Ashes. I like what one of the reviews said, “contemporary story with a historical twist”.

About the Book
When Marshall Becker arrives in Lamorlaye, France, to begin the massive renovation of a Renaissance-era castle, he unearths a dark World War II history few in the village remember. The project that was meant to provide an escape for Becker instead becomes a gripping glimpse into the human drama that unfolded during the Nazi occupation and seems to live on in midnight disturbances and bizarre acts of vandalism.
