Synopsis from author’s website:
Gerard Warner was not only a literary giant whose suspense novels sold in the millions, he was also a man devoted to his family, especially his wife of nearly 60 years. When he dies he leaves his Charleston estate to his grandson, Michael, an aspiring writer himself. Michael settles in to write his own first novel and discovers an unpublished manuscript his grandfather had written, something he’d kept hidden from everyone but clearly intended Michael to find. Michael begins to read an exciting tale about Nazi spies and sabotage, but something about this story is different from all of Gerard Warner’s other books. It’s actually a love story.
As Michael delves deeper into the story he discovers something that has the power to change not only his future but his past as well. Laced with suspense and intrigue, The Discovery is a richly woven novel that explores the incredible sacrifices that must be made to forge the love of a lifetime.
This was such an interesting book. It was a story within a story. I have to say that I was completely engrossed in the WW2 story which was the grandfather’s unpublished novel. That story alone would have been a really good book. It did take me some time to connect with the grandson’s story, but by the end of the book I was hooked there as well.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
Definitely the grandfather’s novel was my favorite. It had suspense, intrigue and romance.
What I didn’t like about this book:
It took me some time to get invested in the other story so it was a little slow for me through those parts.
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Would I recommend this book to others?
Yes. This was the first book I read by this author and I will definitely be giving his books another look.
