The Librarian of Burned Books

The Librarian of Burned Books by Brianna Labuskes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a well-researched historical fiction novel that has you looking up the history and memorials as you are reading, I confess, I did not wait until I finished the book. This story rotates chapters revolving around the lives of three women. It begins in New York City in 1943, with Vivian, who is trying to prevent book censorship. The second woman we meet is an author, who is invited to Berlin, Germany, in 1932. The third woman, Hannah, lives in Paris and the year is 1936, Hannah is a librarian. You can see the three women are connected through books. The way their stories intersect makes for some very interesting reading for almost 400 pages. I would recommend this one to anyone interested in WW2, books, historical fiction, and how people might have lived in these locations during these years. Feb 2023 Pub Date HarperCollins
