Publisher's Summary

Corina Marion's father is dead.
Off to a never-ending war as a Red Cross doctor before Corina was even born, Luther Marion has been a constant but increasingly distant presence in his daughter's life for 16 years. Damaged pictures. Short letters. And three brief phone calls received before Corina was old enough to walk.
But now Luther Marion has returned home at last - as a body in a box to be buried. Corina's mother is devastated. Her small, backwoods town mourns the loss of its local hero.
And Corina...isn't sure how she feels about the death of a father she never really met.
But when a mysterious old man confronts Corina at her father's funeral, she finds herself drawn to his impossible offer: a chance to know the now late Luther Marion. And in a moment of uncertainty, Corina makes a choice with consequences she can barely fathom. A choice that sends her to the last place she ever expected to go.
Her father's hometown. Six hundred miles south.
And 25 years in the past.

take the plunge

Any additional comments?

(I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.)

Nothing pleases me more than receiving a free copy of a book that I enjoy. Sometimes it’s hard to write these reviews and stay pleasant. Sometimes it’s hard not to be the grammar Nazi, the critical editor, the disappointed reader/listener. (Especially since I go into these types of books without expectation other than for what I’ve read in the summary.)

Usually, it’s a toss up. Sometimes I end up not liking the genre at all. Sometimes I discover a new favorite (author, narrator, series). The second, well, those are what I am honestly looking for when I volunteer to review.

This one was honestly a surprise. I liked it so much, I’ve listened to it twice.

And cried both times.

Sure, it’s time travel. But not like any sci-fi time travel you’d expect.

Sure, it’s emotional…a roller coaster, really. (And I do not say that often.)

Sure, it’s a teenage daughter with a smidgeon of angst and a whole lot of anger toward an absent father.

It’s all those things all wrapped up in a neat package of something different.

Don’t go reading other reviews. Avoid spoilers at all costs.

Listen to Julia Knippen take you on this wild ride and sound just like you’d expect Corina to sound, every nuance, every snarky remark, every bit of understanding she gains on her unexpected path.

Understand the parallels between Corina’s world and our own. Maybe, just maybe, gain some insight about yourself.

Do not pass this up.

You’d be missing out.

Engaging, Time travel, War

Set in the not too distant future in a realistic depiction of a world at war, Solace tells the story of a girl who has never met her father. She is bitter toward him for choosing to spend her whole life overseas working for the Red Cross, and then being killed. She is given the opportunity to travel back in time and get to know him.

I loved the time travel element and found the main character likable. I could understand why she felt bitter and my opinions of her father developed along with hers as we travelled this journey together.

I listened to the audiobook edition of this novel, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fabulous, bringing the story to life.
