Al Capone at the Blanche Hotel by Linda Bennett Pennell is a unique historical tale where we are taken back through and alternate between two time periods, 1930 and 2011. The story of Al Capone and the goings on at the Blanche Hotel and the way people where dealt with back in those times just broke my heart. Linda presented us with something that was both interesting and original and captivating. The story is full of suspense and danger, death and tragedy, angst and love.
Even though the story is supposed to be about Al Capone it was more about what happened in the town and other people and the evil doings of the KKK and law enforcement officers and the woman who went on the search for the truth. What this woman found was more than she ever expected.
