Kelli Stuart’s ‘Like a River from Its Course’ Blog Tour and Kindle Prize Pack

Oh WWII fiction, how I love thee.

I'm pretty sure it started with reading The Diary of Anne Frank in school, but I've had a love affair with learning and reading about WWII for ages. I've watched every documentary on Netflix , and I try to read about the war as much as I can. 

Most books I have read, take place within Germany. Like a River from its Course takes place within the Ukraine-a setting I'm unfamiliar with. That's okay, because Kelli Stuart does an amazing job of immersing you in and making you feel like you're in the middle of it all.

My mission is to make my father proud, to be a part of history.

The book is written with different perspectives, the chapter titles allowing you to keep track of who's POV you are experiencing. These people felt so real. If you can't get emotionally involved with the characters in this book- something is absolutely wrong.

This book has all of the angst, heartache, and determination you expect from a WWII novel. If you have any interest in this subject matter-pick.this.up.

Life is a series of trials, all strung together by moments of beauty. But when the string of joy and beauty breaks, what is left to hold life together if there is no God? That's the question you nee to be asking.

Travel back in time in Kelli Stuart's new novel, Like a River from Its Course, as the city of Kiev is bombed in Hitler's blitzkrieg across the Soviet Union. This sweeping historical saga takes the reader on a captivating journey into the little-known history of Ukraine's tragedies through the eyes of four compelling characters who experience the same story from different perspectives. Based on true stories gathered from fifteen years of research and interviews with Ukrainian World War II survivors, Like a River From Its Course is a story of love, war, heartache, forgiveness, and redemption.
