Book Review: A Fifty-Year Silence: Love, War, and a Ruined House by Miranda Richmond Mouillot

I received a complimentary copy of A Fifty-Year Silence: Love, War, and a Ruined House in France in exchange for an honest review:



I grew up with a father who loves history and I inherited that love of history from him, specifically World War II. This book does not disappoint the history fan within me. 

I loved reading of her childhood with these two fascinating people she had in her life who were both affected by the war and her grandfathers role during the Nuremberg Trials.

It's a little disappointing in the fact that the book is more about the author and her life and not so much about the two people the book is supposedly about, but I still found the story very engaging and warm.

As long as you don't expect the book to be too much about the grandparents and an explosive secret as to why the long silence, it's definitely an interesting read.
