Bridge Across A Century
The Boy From Tomorrow by Camille DeAngelis is a children’s adventure book aimed at ages 8-11 years. I am considerably older and I really enjoyed the tale.
The story unites two children one hundred years apart, who live in the same house. Their bond, formed through curiosity and loneliness is beautiful to witness.
There were some very different parenting ideas at the beginning of the twentieth century. The modern reader consequently finds some of the passages of child cruelty difficult to read.
A sisterly bond is beautifully portrayed. The reader can ‘feel’ the love and desire to protect.
The novel has single parent families. Both uniquely drawn and elicit two very different feelings from the reader.
The Boy From Tomorrow is both absorbing and entertaining. I loved it. I was also impressed that the author warns against talking boards in real life, saying to leave them for stories.
A compulsive read that I read in just one sitting.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
