A Must Read Book

I just finished reading Postcards From A Stranger by Imogen Clark. This is my first time reading one of Imogen Clark's books. I have already added her other books to my future reading list.

In Postcards From A Stranger, we see the events of a family's life unfold in parallel times in life. With me being a genealogist it reminds me that events in life are viewed and understood differently depending on past experiences and age at the time of the event. I do not want to give anything away about what happens in the book. So I do not want pinpoint specific events. It is interesting though to see how two children grow up in the same household comprehend events differently due to their ages and what they are able to comprehend. It also shows that there is more than one side of a story.

I always recommend to people who are interviewing family members to obtain stories for their family history to ask various family members. You are not always going to get the same story from a family experiencing similar events. If you are able to get more than one side of a situation you could gain a better understanding of what happened.

If you are looking for a great read...I highly would recommend Postcards From A Stranger. If you have been able to read it I would love to hear what you thought of the book.

You can learn more about Imogen Clark through her website.

I was able to download the book to my Kindle through Amazon.
