The Secret Book of Flora Lea might be billed as historical fiction, but that’s not its main purpose. It’s rather a compelling meditation on the essence and importance of storytelling, whether in post-WWII London or our modern era. Can anyone really ever “own” a story, especially when it’s passed down from generations? If that story has made anxious souls feel safe and loved on a cold night, isn’t that all we want from a great story? Does it even matter where it came from? All of these questions and more are posed in Patti Callahan Henry’s latest novel, a must-read for anyone who has ever felt loved and comforted by a good story.
