Jason Greenfield has masterfully woven history and factual events of his grandfather's life into a book which incorporates an eclectic mix of History, war, heart-break, treachery, love, warmth and loss.
Incorporating fascinating contextual social history, this Superbly written story gripped me in a mosaic of emotion, challeneged convictions and heart-racing drama. After just the first few chapters I found myself suddenly unable to put this down; every chapter unfolding new revelations and building more trepidation and anticipation.
The author reveals how he has fictionalised certain elements to weave the factual content of his research together; he has done this so seamlessly and authentically that it is impossible to distinguish between the two.
This book is nothing short of an emotional and exciting rollercoaster of family drama over a number of years, generations and regions. If you purchase and read Forever Torn, be prepared to be emersed and entangled in this incredible work until you turn the final page.
