Breathtakingly Brilliant Every now and then we are blessed to find an author who has the ability to magically transform words into something so beautiful it could never be matched. In today's world, Uvi Poznansky is that author. If you have not had the opportunity to read her work, I highly recommend you do. In her latest book, Marriage Before Death: WWII Spy Thriller (Still Life with Memories) (Volume 5), her talent shines through with grace and dignity. Wonderfully written and even more beautifully absorbed, this story takes you on an emotional journey to a place and time many have not been. The well-developed characters and detailed setting will stay with you long after you finish reading. In fact, the entire series pulls you in, keeping you engaged in the lives of those involved, while leaving a lasting mark in your own life. If you have an appreciation for stories that stand the test of time, you won't want to miss this novel filled with romance and suspense.
Fifth in the Still Life with Memories series, Marriage before Death takes readers to the dangerous small towns of France just after D-Day. The German occupation is failing, and those in the resistance find their lives increasingly in peril. But what of resisters who aren’t even French, who might be labeled spies and be betrayed for the price of a life or a hat? And what of those who meet in surprise, neither knowing the other would be there? Knowing the future adds an interesting poignancy to stories from the past. Readers know from the start that Natasha’s memories are fading. But Lenny’s memories are clouded only by love and uncertainty. As the characters play their different roles, the question of who is real, what memories are true, and what constitutes personality lie in the background, enriching every step of the path. The writing is musical, as befits a tale with a musical protagonist. The story is intriguing with some sweetly touching scenes. While the reader will guess before the characters what’s going to happen, there’s always that interesting question of memory and reality. A cool addition to the series, and an enjoyable glimpse of different times and lives, I enjoyed Marriage before Death and I’m eager for more. Disclosure: I already love the series and I got this one on a deal.
