Forgotten Objects

By Carlos Rubio

Forgotten Objects should be the best book of 2014. From first page to last, Rubio captured and held me - it was difficult to put down even as I was falling asleep. I am amazed at the history, the knowledge of three countries, three languages, and the overall character development Rubio managed to include in one book. Anna's journey was so real I felt I was taking it with her. I was happy when she was happy and sad when she was sad. That's saying a lot for someone who reads as much as I do. This is a book that could be put on a school reading list, could shine in a book club, and for a lover of history, an absolute must read. I hope Rubio fills us in on Anna's last decades in a future book.
