Like the other two books in the Clay Lion series series, the title Tin Men has a clear allusion to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the journey it takes, complete with adventures and risk, to find yourself where you really belong: home. From the start, Charlie questions his place in the world, he tries to look backwards into the secrets of the past. “I’ve always felt like everyone else was in on this big secret… From early on I realized something wasn’t right.” His parents kept the truth from him, which confused him. “When I snooped, I found only locked doors and empty files.” When he dares, in spite of Brooke’s objection, to go back to the past, Charlie discovers what he had always suspected. He finds his birth mother, and when she tells him her story all the jumbled up pieces of his life fall, somehow, into place. She tells her son, “My father kicked me out of the house, calling me a disgrace to the family…. he would’t have my ‘indiscretions’ ruin his political career.” Looking at her Charlie realizes, “We were both raised by heartless, tin men, more interested their political careers than fostering the love of their children.“ It is his turn to be the strong one. “I cradled her in my arms… I was now consoling the one who should have been caring for me.” The Tin Man in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz found his heart. He found redemption, Will the Tin Men here find theirs? And will Charlie realize that there is no need to search too far, because there is no place like home? Amalie Jahn’s writing is engaging, and at times truly musical. “The timelines lived and relived, the timelines lost to us, the deaths we mourned and the ones we simply moved on from… It was time to make good on a promise I made during a timeline only Brooke remembered.” Five stars.
