More About The Memory Book by Linda Fischer
 
 
 
Overview
In The Memory Book, a small book sparks a years-long journey of historical discovery and fascination.

On a short vacation to Budapest, the author finds a small leather book in an antique store. Opening it she discovers pages filled with watercolors, drawings, and messages. The book turns out to be a memory book--a keepsake album kept by Central European girls at the turn of the twentieth century in which to record advice and remember special events. This one contains evergreen truisms and aphorisms written to the book's owner when she visited places few Americans know. Curiosity and concern propel the author on a multi-year journey into the heart of Old Europe and deep into centuries of art, history, and war. The book lives, the girl lives on, and its message of love finds meaning in our time.

Linda Fischer's The Memory Book is perfect for fans of Danube: A Sentimental Journey from the Source to the Black Sea, Budapest 1900: A Historical Portrait of a City and Its Culture, and Paprika: A Spicy Memoir From Hungary, and for anyone with a sense of adventure and curiosity in their heart.
