Everyone Brave is Forgiven

51NuffmDfkL._SY346_Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave has been on my list for a long time, but I had grown tired of WWII books and wasn’t looking to start this one. It came up at the library, however, and I thought I would give it a try. The story is shared between Mary and Tom, in London, and Tom’s friend Alistair, who is posted in France. The most compelling part of this story is that it is based on the author’s grandparents’ letters from the war. Otherwise, it was too long, too slow, and not as rich or compelling as The Nightingale or All the Light We Cannot See. We’ll see how the next two WWII books on my stack (The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Warlight) hold up.
