The Web of Humanity: A Novel by Maria Turchin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is a great woman and historical fiction
Anna Venu of Arizona is a shrewd, insightful, and funny woman. She’ll need every one of those qualities to make it through the adventure she’s about to go on following the unintentional discovery of a shocking family secret. Anna embarks on a perilous journey across Vienna, Paris, and Berlin in order to solve a mystery that leads her back to the bloody closing days of WWII. When Anna’s quest unexpectedly leads her into a modern-day European political intrigue, she suddenly finds herself in over her head. Anna will have to use all of her abilities and resolve to find the truth and remain alive if she is to survive. This work, told in a unique storytelling manner, spans numerous generations and historical periods, with surprising twists and turns along the way. Readers are forced to ponder the psychological urge for hostility, racism, power abuse, and the inexorable human need for war with Anna. This book encourages readers to learn about their own ancestors’ tales while also emphasizing that we are all connected through the Web of Humanity, which is our last hope for survival.
I loved this story. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read the rest of her books
