The Light in the Ruins
Author

Review
Historical fiction...A family becomes prisoners in their home in Florence during World War II. The story line jumps back and forth between 2 different time periods, while a murder investigation transpires. Multiple characters with lack of character development.

The End of the Point

Review
The story takes place in Ashaunt Point, Massachusetts. It has provided a sanctuary and anchored life for generations of the Porter family. In 1942, the army arrives bringing havoc and change.
It is an excellent story that probes the different lives of all the characters.
