Review: In Wartime: Stories from Ukraine


My Review:
I generally try to stay away from Nonfiction books. I tend to get bored to tears attempting to read them, and then can’t even remember what I just read. However, when I saw that this book was about Ukraine, I decided to take the chance. My husband’s mother was adopted from Ukraine, so I wanted to know a little more about it.
The story has a lot of focus from individuals and their experiences with Ukraine which drew me into the book. There are some real pictures in the book that had me connecting more with the book.
I am not going to lie here, a lot of this stuff did go over my head while reading this, but I was able to get a better understanding on Ukraine and what is going on over there.
The book had a lot of very grim things, and you almost forget for a moment that this is real life. Some of the things were haunting, and I really felt for this country. For anyone that is a Nonfiction person, I would recommend picking this book up.
