My Review
 TO EVERY PAGE A TURNING: One Life's Journey by Carl Buccellato was a pretty good historical fiction book. I found it a bit slow at first, but after a bit of reading I started to really get into it. I liked the fact that the historical fiction was in fact a parallel the author's own life, as I felt like it gave the story a level or realism that fiction often lacks. I personally felt real sympathy as the author led me through the story filled with success and family building, then suffering and divorce. These events made me feel very personally invested in the book and help me to build an understanding of those involved as I read through the book. I liked the author's writing style and the way it slowly reeled me in. I hope the author continues to write in this genre as I would love to read more of his work.
