Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The history in The Woman in the Photo by Mary Hogan encompasses the Great Flood of 1889 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, still one of the worst losses of civilian life ever in the United States. The fictional characters have cares and concerns that go beyond history, making the story engaging, and yet the historical characters and events are easily verified. Historical fiction is a balance between fictional story and actual history. This book does a great job at maintaining that balance.
