My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Annie Jacobson's brother Mike enlists as a medic in the Army in 1967, he hands her a piece of paper with the address of their long-estranged father. If anything should happen to him in Vietnam, Mike says, Annie must let their father know.
In Mike's absence, their father returns to face tragedy at home, adding an extra measure of complication to an already tense time. As they work toward healing and pray fervently for Mike's safety overseas, letter by letter the Jacobsons must find a way to pull together as a family, regardless of past hurts. In the tumult of this time, Annie and her family grapple with the tension of holding both hope and grief in the same hand, even as they learn to turn to the One who binds the wounds of the brokenhearted.
Author Susie Finkbeiner invites you into the Jacobson family's home and hearts during a time in which the chaos of the outside world touched their small community in ways they never imagined.
All Manner of Things is the newest release by Susie Finkbeiner. I have read one other book by her in the past. I really enjoyed that book and this one is no different. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster with Annie’s and her family’s story. I enjoyed getting to know every one of them.
I give All Manner of Things a well deserved five plus stars. I can not wait to read more by this author in the future. I highly recommend this one to readers who enjoy clean, inspirational historical fiction.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
