You know you’re getting old when you read “historical fiction” and it’s set in the time you grew up! And that’s all I have to say about that!
But then again, that’s why I chose to read ALL MANNER OF THINGS by Susie Finkbeiner. I grew up in the sixties and early seventies in a rural community so this book hits close to home.
Deciding to write a Vietnam era book is a brave thing, even now. That time still evokes strong emotions in those of us who lived it. Susie Finkbeiner has done a wonderful job recreating the innocence of the era as well as the conflict that marked the time.
I’m not going to give away the plot, but this is a book worth reading—whether you’re old enough to remember it or not. I’d definitely recommend it!
God Bless & Good Reading!
