Wanted to read this book with the intent to learn new things. Wyoming is one place we've yet to visit but the subject matter also interested me.
Kinda hard to separate the older generation from the present. Starts out with an explosion in Wyoming and a group claim they did it. A reporter, Jewish from NYC has traveled there to find out the answers.
The group had targeted Jews and she wants to find out why. She does contact them to write the story that will be picked up by many other newspapers for publicity.
There is an agency that is also investigating but there is another explosion and again the group claim they did it.
Listening to this via audio tape made it very confusing for me with all the alternating chapters between the two that are finding clues and at some points not working together to solve the mystery.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
How Lauren and Charlie come together to break a group of white supremicists comprises most of the plot. Interestingly enough, however, they share a great-great-grandmother in common. Susan Isaacs spends a great deal of time showing how they became American by tracing the story of the generations between Dora Schottland, a 15 year old orphan from Budapest, and Charlie and Lauren.
Though there would seem to be a schism between the historical section and the mystery/romance, Susan Isaacs smooths over the transitions with a narrative voice strong in irony and humor. Her use of detail to quickly paint the portraits of people in the past is masterful. While not destined to be a classic, Red White and Blue could still be said to be a great American novel. Definitely worth the read.
