All Manner of Things by Susie Finkbeiner






When Annie Jacobson's brother Mike enlists as a medic in the Army in 1967, he hands her a piece of paper with the address of their long-estranged father. If anything should happen to him in Vietnam, Mike says, Annie must let their father know.

In Mike's absence, their father returns to face tragedy at home, adding an extra measure of complication to an already tense time. As they work toward healing and pray fervently for Mike's safety overseas, letter by letter the Jacobsons must find a way to pull together as a family, regardless of past hurts. In the tumult of this time, Annie and her family grapple with the tension of holding both hope and grief in the same hand, even as they learn to turn to the One who binds the wounds of the brokenhearted.

Author Susie Finkbeiner invites you into the Jacobson family's home and hearts during a time in which the chaos of the outside world touched their small community in ways they never imagined.

My Review





A read that feels like I sitting a talking with friends, a page-turner for sure, and a hard time for this family, friends and country.
I loved the touch on the Dutch heritage, my husband’s family came to this country with a land grant from the King of Holland, but sadly the heritage has long been lost.
I grew up during this time, and the book slams me with reminders, and what was happening during this time, and the losses.
This is a book to savor, while I could have finished it quickly, I refused to do so and read it more slowly than usual. Yes, I loved this one!
A reminder of a past time, with the horror of war, but with the touch of everyday life, and family.

I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
