Editorial Reviews

Review

Prolific novelist and nonfiction author Goyer pens a contemporary story rooted in World War II...This novel has a sweet way of describing family relationships and will particularly speak to those closely connected to WWII veterans, who are taking their stories with them to the grave. (Nov.) -Publisher's Weekly

"A wonderfully told tale about the need we all have for peace over the parts of our past we wish we could change--and the amazing truth that often what we wish we could change, God has already redeemed for good." --Susan Meissner, award-winning author of A Sound Among the Trees and Lady in Waiting

"Goyer's love of history and the people who lived it shines through this tale of two people who lost the romance of their youth but might have a second chance as they escort their grandfathers across Europe to a ceremony honoring the liberators of a German concentration camp." --Lauraine Snelling, best-selling author

"History lovers will appreciate Tricia Goyer's research and detail, and story lovers will delight in four fascinating characters with clashing goals. I highly recommend this novel." --Sarah Sundin, author of A Distant Melody, A Memory Between Us, and Blue Skies Tomorrow

Remembering You is a sweet and powerful story about a woman's journey through remembrance of her grandfather's World War II experience. I am a bit of a World War II buff. I love reading stories, fact or fictional, set during that time. What starts as a way to get closer to her grandfather while resurrecting her career, becomes a journey of love and the rekindling of faith for Ava.

I enjoyed this novel very much. The highlights for me are Grandpa Jack and Grand-Paul. I believe Ms. Goyer did an excellent job in embracing both characters in a very realistic way. They could be anyone's grandfather. A part of me wishes they were mine. I enjoyed their camaraderie, it was very believable. I loved that their friendship stood the test of time and distance. There was a bit of humor in Grand-Paul. Of the two, he was the one with more spunk while Grandpa Jack was the more thoughtful one.

I enjoyed the journey the four main characters, Ava and her Grandpa Jack along with Grand-Paul and his grandson Dennis, who just so happened to be Ava's first love. I got a real sense of the emotion building between the grandfathers especially during their travel from Paris to the Concentration Camp in Mauthausen, Austria. Ms. Goyer interviewed countless Veterans of WWII and her research shows. There is an authentic feel to her writing. There were times I had to remind myself this was fiction.

Sadly the lowlights of Remembering You were Ava and Dennis. I thoroughly enjoyed their backstory and the hint of a possible romance. What I did not enjoy were the characters themselves. In the beginning, Ava was too self-centered and a bit whiney. Dennis was a little too self-righteous for my taste.

Ava's job as a producer of the local top news show is stale, along with her non-existent relationship. Her trip with her Grandpa Jack, his best friend, Paul and his grandson, Dennis just might give her new insights into the past and make for a great feature.

Along their historical journey, Ava receives plenty of wise wisdom from her grandpa, wanted or not. She soon learns that there is a lot more to her grandpa than his rough exterior.

You will immediately connect with all the characters and your heart will go out to the Veterans and all the people involved. Their emotional journey will grab and keep you, wishing for more.

The Authors personal visits with friends, historians, and the Veterans in the back of the book will bring understanding along with tears and rounds out the true-to-life story with actual facts.

A Must Read! Lest we never forget the tragedies of the past and the promise of the future.

Format: Paperback
Tricia Goyer knows how to write fiction on World War II. Remembering You takes a different approach to the war, in that it's not a historical. Set in modern times, Ava Ellington journeys with her `Grandpa Jake' back through France, Germany, and Austria as he relives his experiences during the war. A trip that first began as a way to help reestablish both her job and her relationship with her grandfather, this journey down memory lane soon becomes so much more for Ava.

Ava was easy to get to know. While I didn't always agree with her "business first" approach to things, I enjoyed watching her fight it. Slowly, as the trip progressed, she began to see that spending time with her grandfather--really getting to know him and the man he was during the war--was far more important than getting `good footage'. Dennis was a bit harder to understand, his angry behavior often seemed kinda out of place and unexplained. But his care for those around him, and his undying love for Ava, was sweet.

I completely enjoyed this journey down memory lane. Each interview that Grandpa Jack or Grand-Paul did for Ava seemed to real and filled with vivid detail and emotion. Remembering You is a story that needs to be savored. I think veterans from the war would appreciate the time and love that Tricia Goyer has put into this book! Historical fans who enjoy books centered around WWII will enjoy this very unique approach to reliving the war--In a way that we all can relate to today.

I reviewed this book for Litfuse. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

After reading many books in christian fiction I have come to regard tricia goyer as as one of the best Christian fiction authors out there.
**SPOILER ALERT**
Meet Ava she works in journalism and in fact her life is not really going in the direction she planned and she is the type of person who likes to have everything planned out. Ava has a somewhat strained relationship with her grandpa jack because of an argument they had some months earlier about her ex fiance and her relationship with the Lord. Her mother asks her to accompany her Grandfather to Europe for a reunion tour with his unit from WW2. Ava sees this as a way to fix her relationship with the Grandpa but also to restart her stagnate career by interviewing her Grandpa and his old war buddies. When they get the Europe she is surprised to meet up with Grandpa Jack's best friend Grand Paul and his grandson Dennis who is an old flame of Ava's they tour has been cancelled and the four decide to make the trek through Europe on their own. This is really where the story begins. The main points of the story are Ava and her relationship with Grandpa Jack. Grandpa Jack finding some measure of closure over some of the things that haunt him from the war namely Angeline and Chenogne Angeline is a little girl who he saved and Chenogne is place where something happened. Then we also see a little romance between Ava and Dennis and lastly but most certainly not least Ava and her relationship with the Lord. Its always fascinating to look at the greatest generation from the perspective of someone younger such as Ava we also get to see Ava grow as a person in her caring for others and primarily the theme that comes through this book is the christian message of forgiveness which is something we must all give and receive.
