Book: The things we cherished
Author: Pam Jenoff
Genre: Literary Fiction
Reviewed by: Alison Richardson
This is the second book that I have read recently by this author and although I enjoyed the first, I enjoyed this even more. Again, the chapters jumped between various characters, this time over one hundred years, the link being a clock made by a farmer in 1909. This clock holds the key to proving that Roger had not betrayed his brother to the Nazis. He is about to be tried for war crimes but he is reluctant to give evidence that will exonerate him.
This novel seemed less rushed and more complete and it made me want to continue reading to discover what happened. Definitely one to read!
