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.

Remembering You is a fascinating story of two World War II veterans who make a return tour of European battle sites accompanied by their grandson and granddaughter. Tricia Goyer has written a touching story of the memories of these men who helped to liberate an Austrian labor camp.

I do not usually like World War II books but found this book which is based on historical facts to be sensitive and emotional. The characters are well developed. The devotion of the adult grandchildren to their elderly grandfathers was wonderful. Sometimes we learn things we regret about the past were not what they seemed.

I received this book from the author and highly recommend it to others.

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.

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.

Oh my goodness, have you ever picked up a book and you can't put it down until you read the whole book. Well this is it. Ava is working at a TV station as director of a morning show, she lost her boyfriend when he left her a note saying he couldn't do it and her bag of stuff on her doorstep, not even a call. Her job is not going really well and she is trying to find a story to boost ratings for her show. Well her mom calls and tells her that she has broken her leg and she is not going to be able to go on a trip with her dad, Ava's grandpa. She finds out that a groups of soldiers that were part of a tank division that liberated a concentration camp in Austria. They get to Paris and find that her grandfather's friend is she call him Grand-Paul and his grandson Dennis who she was in love with when she was a teenager. They get to the hotel and find out that the tour director had a accident and was not going to able to do the tour. Well the other soldier take the bus and go to Austria and Dennis, Grand-Paul, Grandpa Jack and Ava decide to keep the rental car and do the tour anyway. In the process Ava find out so much more about the stories that they use to tell her growing up and helps her grandfather find a little girl who he thought he shot by accident as an adult and a reunion. You best of our tissues ready because this is a wonderful story. I know part are based on true events and it was written as fiction but the history is there and you can picture the places that we may not all be able to see to clearly in your mind.
