Remembering You

Television producer Ava Ellington cannot refuse her grandfather's last wish - that she accompany him to Europe on a tour of World War II battle sites. Ava has little interest in historical battles, but this may be her last chance to break down the barriers that have grown up between them, and she sets off, camera in hand, ready to record and report on their journey. She and Grandpa Jack are greeted in Paris by Paul, her grandpa's best friend, and his grandson Dennis. The Dennis who just happens to be Ava's first love.

History comes alive as the group travels across Europe - from the romantic sights of Paris to the bleak battlefields of Belgium to the Austrian labor camp these men liberated so many years before - and Ava sees a side of her grandfather she's never known before. As he shares his memories of those bitter days on the battlefield, she begins to understand how his experiences in the war made him the man he is today.

Throughout the journey, Ava and Dennis are drawn together in ways neither of them expected. Can their memories of the past lead to a bright new future?

My Review:

This is such a wonderful book to read as an outsider looking into the personal relationship that Ava and her grandfather are working at resolving while traveling across Europe despite the fact that the original planned tour was cancelled and now Ava is funding this trip as a gift to her grandfather. Feeling more than overwhelmed at traveling in a country where the language is foreign to her as well as the country itself, she is determined to make this trip memorable for her grandfather, despite the fact that her very job could depend on the footage she is able to capture along the way. However her grandfather isn't about to share his memories so Ava can capture this on her television show. There are simply some memories that are just too painful to share as Ava will soon discover the real reason for her grandfather's trip to Europe.

I received Remembering You by Tricia Goyer, compliments of Litfuse Publicity for my honest review and since Tricia Goyer is one of my personal literary favorites I jumped at the chance to read this one. I am such a huge history fan of World War II, that this was such a rare delight to see how the war impacted someone on a personal level and that's why I believe this one deserves all 5 out of 5 stars!
