The Pieces We Keep

The Pieces We Keep - Kristina McMorris

I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand it took me forever to finish the first half of the book and I couldn't keep my interest in it for more than a few pages. On the other hand I flew through the second half of the book. I am a little confused by this because I usually love Kristina McMorris' books.


I think I would have loved this book if it had only been about the characters from WWII. For the first half of the book I couldn't stand the present day characters. The only time I found myself liking them was when their connection to the WWII characters was revealed. I just really enjoyed reading about Vivian and would have rather that story been completely fleshed out in the book.


Overall the ending didn't make up for the first half that seemed to take me forever to read.
