What I’m Reading: News of Our Loved Ones by Abigail Dewitt

News of Our Loved Ones by Abigail Dewitt follows the lives of three generations of women from World War Two. While the writing is beautiful, the story itself falls flat. The way the story is written, you only get glimpses of the characters lives. Whereas there are whole chapters where things are mentioned only briefly that could have been made into a whole novel themselves. The writing was lovely but Dewitt changes characters frequently, and only tells the reader how to follow along on the front page with a list of characters and the chapters they are in which is very confusing when you are trying to be involved in the book. And not focus on trying to flip to the front to remember which chapter is about what character.
