As Bright as Heaven

Author : Susan Meissner

Genre : Historical Fiction

It’s not often I read a book where Death is a character. The story begins at the beginning of World War I when the Spanish flu erupts on the scene, eventually killing tens of thousands of people. Thomas Bright has just moved with his wife, Pauline and his three daughters to Philadelphia so he can assist his Uncle Fred with his funeral home business. They have lost their little baby boy, Henry, a few months earlier. The story is told through the eyes of Pauline, and their daughters, Evelyn, Maggie, and Willa as the war and the flu take their toll on loved ones and friends. A mysterious baby boy is found and that story resolves itself in a surprising way in the end, as does love for two of the sisters. A thought-provoking and delightful read.
