“Brooklyn Wars” by Triss Stein is not a book that I would typically choose, but the opportunity to learn about the Brooklyn Navy yard intrigued me, and I was not disappointed. The Brooklyn Navy Yard is one of Brooklyn’s never-ending sagas of land use conflict that pits the demand for development and commerce against the plea for historical preservation. This novel mingles past and present to bring to life to this piece of “land” through the history of the people who worked there. The book is written in the first person voice of historian Erica Donato; conversations and descriptions provide the details about the other characters. Many everyday particulars give the characters depth, and make them come alive, like next-door neighbors. The author uses these characters to intertwine the past and the present and make history personal not just academic. It is a nice assortment of commerce, redevelopment, politics, romance, family drama, rivalry, and history, with a couple of murders thrown in for good measure, but without graphic violence or inappropriate language. Thank you to NetGalley, Poisoned Pen Press and Triss Stein for the opportunity to read and review “Brooklyn Wars.” I really enjoyed the mix of the past and present.
