Book Recommendation of the Week: The History of Love

IMG_0710

What It’s About: Elderly Leo Gursky once loved a girl named Alma when he was young in Poland, who inspired him to write a book called The History of Love .Separated by war, life and circumstances, neither Leo’s relationship with Alma or his book survives: Alma assumed that Leo died and moved on, while Leo learnt that the book was destroyed in a flood. But the book survived, and fourteen year old Alma Singer sets out looking for the author of The History of Love, hopingg to make her mother happy again.

Who Will Love It: Lovers of good writing, fans of writers like Jonathan Safran Foer, anyone looking for a book they won’t forget.

What I Loved: The lyrical prose, the characters, the beautiful story.
