Book Recommendation: The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian

 

The Light in the Ruins (2013) is an excellent novel by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian. This story of love, despair and revenge features an Italian family of noble lineage during and after World War II and and an investigator with the Florence Police Department. Click on the links to learn more about this book, the author and his other books. This will be the next book that Dolores will read and I recommend it for your reading list.

Roy Kelley - I bought the book and I'm enjoying it! It's riveting and keeping me on the edge of my seat! I also picked up the Edward Snowden Files. You might want to read that one too.
