Growing TBR (18)

I’m always adding books to my TBR list. Here are the books that I added this week, along with where I saw them, and a summary.

Book: The Report by Jessica Francis Kane

From: Erin at Erin Reads’ In My Mailbox post.

Summary (Goodreads): An evocative reimagining of a World War II civilian disaster.

On a March night in 1943, on the steps of a London Tube station, 173 people die in a crowd seeking shelter from another air raid. When the devastated neighborhood demands a report, the job falls to magistrate Laurence Dunne.

In this beautifully crafted novel, Jessica Francis Kane paints a vivid portrait of London at war. As Dunne investigates, he finds the truth to be precarious, even damaging. When he is forced to reflect several decades later, Dunne must consider whether he chose the right course.

‘The Report’ is a compelling commentary on the way all tragedies are remembered.
