Long Ago and Far Away - Reading Between the Lines Book Discussion Series
Thursday April 13, 2017
3:00 PM until 4:30 PM
Carole Shmurak returns to the Southington Library to present another great mystery series.
Historical mysteries take us to distant places and times. In this series we will look at three modern British detectives attempting to solve crimes that occurred 40–50 years earlier. Like Foyle’s War on public television, these books combine mystery with vivid accounts of the British homefront during World War II.
Out of the Blackout (1984) – Robert Barnard
An unidentified boy from London is taken in by a couple living in the country during the height of World War II. As a grown man, now known as Simon Thorn, he returns to London to try to find out who he is and what happened to his biological parents. Simon’s search leads to some unsettling truths about his family and about England.
