Remembering You~Review

untitled

I just finished reading Tricia Goyer’s latest book Remembering You as part of the current Litfuse blog tour.

About the book:

35-year-old Ava Andrews' dream job is interrupted by an unusual request--fulfill her 84-year-old grandfather's last wish by joining him on a battle site tour of Europe. Ava is sure her boss will refuse her request. But, instead, he gives her a directive of his own--to videotape the tour and send it back as mini-segments for the show she produces.

As if juggling these two things isn't hard enough, Ava is soon surprised again ... twice. First, Ava and Grandpa Jack arrive in Europe, only to discover the tour is cancelled. Unwilling to let down her grandfather or her boss, Ava and Grandpa Jack head out on their own. Then, while they're on their way, the pair soon meet up with Paul, her grandpa's best friend, and his grandson Dennis. The same Dennis who just happens to be Ava's first love.

Before she knows it, Ava and Dennis are swept down memory lane as they visit the sites that are discussed in the history books. And even though Ava's videotaping old soldiers, she can see their youth, their hopes and fears, and their pride in their eyes. Soon Ava learns the trip isn't just for them ... it's for her too--especially for her heart.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed reading Remembering You. World War II is one of my favorite time periods in history. I cannot imagine the hardship of war and the memories many veterans have carried for so many years. Ava is on this trip with her grandfather helping him around Europe. It is also the opportunity to get that great story for the show she produces. 

What Ava discovers is something much deeper than just a great story. She realizes these stories are part of her grandfathers life. What he lived through during the war and the memories he has carried with him every single day since. It is about finding peace and the healing of wounds that were opened long ago.  This story about the truly important things in life. Not a job but God and family.
