Like a River From Its Course is by far one of the best historical fiction books about World War II that I have ever read. The depth of each character was outstanding and I found myself reading slower as I was near the end – I didn’t want it to end!
Despite the raw & heartbreaking circumstances surrounding each character, there are ribbons of truth scattered throughout the novel that bring hope.
About the book:
Travel back in time in Kelli Stuart’s new novel, Like a River from Its Course, as the city of Kiev is bombed in Hitler’s blitzkrieg across the Soviet Union. This sweeping historical saga takes the reader on a captivating journey into the little-known history of Ukraine’s tragedies through the eyes of four compelling characters who experience the same story from different perspectives. Based on true stories gathered from fifteen years of research and interviews with Ukrainian World War II survivors, Like a River From Its Course is a story of love, war, heartache, forgiveness, and redemption.
