Book Review

A Long Island Story by Rick Gekoski

Set in 1953 this book is about a family moving from Washington DC to Long Island. It is not a move any of them really wish to be making, but with the political era of that time, they have to leave.

This isn’t a book where ‘something happens ‘, there is no mystery to solve, or bad guy to track down, it is a story of a snapshot of a turbulent time in a families life. It is about about a fragile marriage, a couple returning home to where they used to live, thinking their life should be more than what it is. But knowing it is only them that can make it so.

The skill of the writing made this book for me.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
