“The Light in the Ruins” by Chris Bohjalian


Another great book by Chris Bohjalian!

From the New York Times bestselling author of Midwives and The Sandcastle Girls comes a spellbinding novel of love, despair, and revenge—set in war-ravaged Tuscany.

Every book by Chris Bohjalian is totally different, but share great character development and compelling story lines. Anyone who loves a good World War II novel is going to adore this book! Nestled inside this war novel are several stories of love, loyalty and revenge. The Light in the Ruins is historical fiction, very well researched and written.


I normally don’t care for war stories, but this was so much more, romance, mystery, a war story, yes, but with some much more to offer. The only way to describe this book is amazing, touching, gripping. If you’re looking for a book to get lost in this is a MUST READ!

Happy reading! :)
