A Novel of the Great Depression


A Trail of Crumbs
A Novel of the Great Depression
By Susie Finkbeiner

Set in the great Depression, this novel is about the ups and downs of life. Themes include hope vs. despair, persevering vs. giving up, light vs. darkness, acceptance vs. rejection, and friendship . isolation.  It is a sad story, but rich with emotions. Finkbeiner has done a very good job with developing her characters - you can feel their every struggle.  it is an interesting peek into history.

It's a heavy read - not a beach read. It's not for readers who want light-hearted fiction. But if you want to sink into another time, another place, another family, and another era of history, you might enjoy reading and pondering over this book.

I would recommend this book for male and female readers age 15+.  It would be a very good book for a book club that is interested in historical fiction.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
