A Book to Read and Love: The Road Beyond Ruin - Gemma Liviero


A short summary of The Road Beyond Ruin:

An Italian POW adopts a new life while trying to return home.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Success can only come from patience and study. You cannot expect it from others."

Questions to ponder while reading The Road Beyond Ruin:

Can you take care of another person if you have nothing?

Can you find sympathy for your enemy?

My thoughts about the book:

I never thought about what happened after the WWII victory parades until now.

A good book about surviving the aftermath of the war.

I couldn't imagine how hard it was to survive.
