Little Contemporary Corner – @TLCCBlog – We’ve Come to Take You Home – Blog Tour

original posting here :

It’s the third day of the blog tour for We’ve Come to Take You Home! I was so excited to read this book because the premise sounded fascinating. I remember a few weeks ago when Sarah mentioned it to me and I jumped at the chance of reading it. Here’s a little info about the novel and author, Susan Gandar, as well as some of my own thoughts on We’ve Come to Take You Home.

My Thoughts

The differing perspectives in this novel is one of my favourite aspects of it. I love that the two girls are almost a century apart and live such contrasting lives on the surface, however so many parallels can be made. Both of the girl’s stories are beautifully emotional. The protagonists, Sam and Jessica, are easy to relate to and offer an open and honest perspective on their lives.

As I said at the start of this post, I was excited by the premise of the novel and thankfully, the story kept me interested! Sam’s visions of the past are rather jarring which is great because you feel how she does in the book. She is disorientated and this feeling is translated really well with the writing.

This is a fascinating premise and I would recommend it, especially if (like me) you enjoying reading fiction from the World Wars.
