As Bright As Heaven

I am a fan of Susan Meissner’s A BRIDGE ACROSS OCEANS. So when I saw this new title coming onto the literary scene, well, I went after it. So glad I did.

The Bright family have been living in a small town near Philadelphia. Early 1900’s. They recently suffered a great loss. Their infant son died and they’ve just buried him. They decide this is a good time to move to the city. Pauline and Thomas take their three daughters to live in their uncle’s house in the city. Thomas is going to learn the undertaking business and work with his uncle. It’s a new start.

Meissner does a stellar job of showing us what it may have been like to live through the Spanish Flu pandemic that hit Philadelphia especially hard. Millions of people died worldwide. And, interestingly enough. the Spanish Flu did not originate in Spain. Many now believe that military troops actually took the flu to Spain.

This new novel has plenty to keep you reading far into the night. Very strong females. A superb mystery. And a story begging to be told.
