Reviews: A THREAD OF GRACE by Mary Doria Russell

A few of our WWII reading challenge participants read A Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russell.  Here’s what they had to say; click the links to read the complete reviews.

Carol from Magistra Mater says:

After I finished this story of the Jewish resistance in Italy, sniffling and throat-lumping, I count it in the top five books about civilian life during WWII.  Russell (who grew up in my hometown, Lombard, IL) obviously knows both Judaism and Catholocism deep down at the roots in this well-researched and well-written story.

Heather from Age 30+…A Lifetime of Books says:

This is a book whose stories will stay with me for a long time. It was worth all the effort it took to read and I will definitely be keeping it as part of my permanent collection (a rare honor in my house!).

Becky from Becky’s Book Reviews says:

The good news is that when it’s good, it’s really, really good. When you’re able to connect with the story, with the characters, then everything is great. The bad news is that when you’re not able to connect, when you’re more confused than anything else, it can be a chore to read.

**Attention participants:  Remember to email us a link to your reviews, and we’ll post them here so we can see what everyone is reading!**
