The Glass Chateau - a moving post-WWII story about healing and repentance.

Asher has survived WWII, but the former French Resistance fighter is a broken man. He has lost everything and is haunted by his experiences in the war. He finds himself at Le Chateau Guerin, which becomes a place he finds work and perhaps a place to heal. He joins an interesting group of people who are creating beautiful stained-glass windows to replace those destroyed during the war. Each person is a survivor and like Asher, has secrets they are hiding from one another. While Asher had been a cobbler before the war, he is able to adapt his skills and proves he can be an asset with his creativity.

Stephen P. Kiernan's The Glass Chateau is a moving story that demonstrates how hard it was for people to go on after they'd lost so much. The task of rebuilding was a huge undertaking especially when healing and repentance was needed by many who survived. While slow at times, I was glad I read this book, inspired by the stained-glass work created by Marc Chagall, as it was filled with heart and hope.

Rated 3.75 out of 5 stars.
