Bethlehem is a carefully written touching and moving family saga that takes a different approach here to those buried family secrets The story explores temptation regret cost of carrying those secrets and how it changes the people who doThings start off slow here or better described as uietly as we see the relationships between the characters develop and get a strong sense of how they care for each other It takes some patience here and comes at risk here with reviewers as we are often rushed to get to the long list of titles we have However my Traveling Sisters warned me and I waited to start this one when I could give it the focus it needs What seems as a simple story develops into a complex story and there is a lot of depth to this one Once the layers are placed the pace starts to pick up and the story becomes uite interesting There are two timelines and stories going on here with our main characters and I found one to be much stronger than the other and at times the weaker one added some weight to the story However I really enjoyed how it all came together and thought it was brilliantly done There is a lot to think about and discuss with this one and it really lead to a great discussion among the Traveling Sisters who read this one I highly recommend for group reads especially when they are read over a longer period of time and some focus can be given to itI received a copy from the publisher on NetGalley

Karen Kelly Í 8 summary

Karen Kelly Í 8 summary Bethlehem summary é 8 Is a story of temptation and regret a story of secrets and the cost of keeping them a story of forgiveness It is the story of two complex women thrown together in the name of family who in coming to understand each other come finally to understand themselve. Joanna Collier is the mother of two young children and married to Frank an engineer working for his family s businessBethlehem Steel After his father s death Frank s responsibilities increased dramatically and felt the pressure to move his family to the headuarters in Bethlehem Pennsylvania And he needed to be closer to his aging grandmother and mother both living alone in their ancestral home Joanna doesn t mind the move but reluctantly agrees to live in the mansion The divide between her and Frank only widens as she feels even isolated struggles to connect with his grandmother and mother and fears she s losing her identityThis story takes uite some time to develop and I highly recommend you stick with it as the payoff is worth it The story transitions between 1962 Joanna s perspective and 191824 in the time of Frank s maternal and paternal grandparents Hollins Parrish ran the steel company and Charles Collier worked there as chief engineer The families were close their children even closer and their story is told through the eyes of Frank s mother Susannah Parrish Collier Susannah is a formidable presence in both eras but in entirely divergent ways I was always intrigued to learn how that happened and it was slowly revealed but perfectly timed The details are important and I m glad I was patient as the attention given to develop each character made such a difference in the power of the storytelling All the while Joanna s story continues and I knew at some point there would be a connection although it was wildly wonderfully elusive I guessed what most likely happened 38 years earlier but by the time it was revealed I was hopelessly connected with these people experiencing every emotion fresh and raw And there were a few twists that I didn t anticipate that provided even shape form and texture to the story This is a beautiful touching story that I didn t see coming I m really glad I stayed with it because once you reach the halfway point you ll not want to put it down Posted on Blue Mood Caf Thanks to St Martin s Press and NetGalley for my complimentary copy All opinions are my own

    EBOOK Bethlehem It takes some perseverance to get to the heart of the story because there are so many characters to remember with their formal names and their nicknames There is also the background information with a bit of the history of Bethlehem and the steel industry thrown into the mix But I think it can be misleading to see this as a historical novel s
