Most of us have some knowledge of World War 2 gained through history class in school and/or from TV and movies. Rarely do we have the opportunity to see  through the eyes of those who actually experienced it – to really know how the things that they heard, saw, and did actually affected their lives. In ‘Remembering You’ the reader is treated to many of these stories along with Ava Andrews who tours Europe with her grandfather and his best friend Paul as they revisit many of the sites they remember so well.

Not only does Ava have unresolved issues to work out with her grandfather but Paul’s grandson Dennis has joined him on the tour. Dennis just happens to be the first love in Ava’s life but they parted on less than ideal terms. Upon meeting after years apart, the tension between them threatens to disrupt the peace of their trip together. It doesn’t help that their grandfathers seem to be attempting a bit of matchmaking on the side.

‘Remembering You’ is a story about the importance of family relationships, finding out what is really important in your life, making peace with your past, and second chances. Its personal look at how the war affected the men who fought it added another dimension to my understanding of WWII history. I liked the fact that  I could never assume what would happen next even though I had a suspicion how things would end. The author managed to slip in a few surprises along the way.

I enjoyed every page of  ‘Remembering You’ and recommend it to lovers of historical fiction. This book would make a wonderful addition to your own library or a nice gift for a friend or family member.

35-year-old Ava Andrews’ dream job is interrupted by an unusual request–fulfill her 84-year-old grandfather’s last wish by joining him on a battle site tour of Europe. Ava is sure her boss will refuse her request. But, instead, he gives her a directive of his own–to videotape the tour and send it back as mini-segments for the show she produces.

As if juggling these two things isn’t hard enough, Ava is soon surprised again … twice. First, Ava and Grandpa Jack arrive in Europe, only to discover the tour is cancelled. Unwilling to let down her grandfather or her boss, Ava and Grandpa Jack head out on their own. Then, while they’re on their way, the pair soon meet up with Paul, her grandpa’s best friend, and his grandson Dennis. The same Dennis who just happens to be Ava’s first love.

Before she knows it, Ava and Dennis are swept down memory lane as they visit the sites that are discussed in the history books. And even though Ava’s videotaping old soldiers, she can see their youth, their hopes and fears, and their pride in their eyes. Soon Ava learns the trip isn’t just for them … it’s for her too–especially for her heart.
