I spent the whole day on the couch reading this book today. I couldn’t put it down quite frankly. It’s rare for me to not read a book over a period of time, but this one was great and I was intrigued the entire time. Literally, my plans for the day became irrelevant as I felt that I had to finish her book!
Personally, I don’t believe in telling the story of a book in a book review because I feel like it spoils it for others who may read it. Also, the book jacket tells the story itself so you already know what the book entails (to a point).
But let me just say that Sandra Perez Gluschankoff has great talent in weaving the stories of many different generations of lives together in an unforgettable way. Our world is a small one as witnessed in the relationships which emerge between characters in her book. At once I was smitten with the humanness of her characters and had to know their stories. She revealed them piece by piece in the most remarkable way and I am ever grateful to have spent the day with Franzisca’s Box opened on my lap.
