Remembering You by Tricia Goyer--A Litfuse Publicity Group Book Review


About the book:

35-year-old Ava Andrews' dream job is interrupted by an unusual request--fulfill her 84-year-old grandfather's last wish by joining him on a battle site tour of Europe. Ava is sure her boss will refuse her request. But, instead, he gives her a directive of his own--to videotape the tour and send it back as mini-segments for the show she produces.

As if juggling these two things isn't hard enough, Ava is soon surprised again ... twice. First, Ava and Grandpa Jack arrive in Europe, only to discover the tour is cancelled. Unwilling to let down her grandfather or her boss, Ava and Grandpa Jack head out on their own. Then, while they're on their way, the pair soon meet up with Paul, her grandpa's best friend, and his grandson Dennis. The same Dennis who just happens to be Ava's first love.

Before she knows it, Ava and Dennis are swept down memory lane as they visit the sites that are discussed in the history books. And even though Ava's videotaping old soldiers, she can see their youth, their hopes and fears, and their pride in their eyes. Soon Ava learns the trip isn't just for them ... it's for her too--especially for her heart.

My Review:

Remembering You is a story where past and present come together and take the reader on an incredible journey through Europe.  Ava, her Grandpa Jack, and his friend whom Ava fondly calls, Grand-Paul, visit battle sites as they retrace the route these men took during World War II.

Through her research, and interviews with World War II veterans Tricia Goyer honors these veterans by using their stories to create stories like Remembering You, Stories I think many readers will enjoy, especially those who enjoy history. I may never be able to visit Europe myself, but Tricia Goyer’s descriptions made me feel that I was there experiencing the journey with the characters.

I loved the characters in this story, they were so real that they leapt off the page. I watched them grow with each new experience, and as they learned more about each other. They learned  forgiveness, compassion, to listen, and to accept each other as they are. They also grew in their love of God.

I enjoyed learning about World War II, and the battles that the characters fought in. Tricia Goyer did an excellent  job in combining contemporary times and history together to create a wonderful story that I will read again, and have already recommended to my husband, because he also likes to read about World War II.

I would recommend  Remembering You for readers high-school to adult.
