As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner is a historical novel that explores what it was like to grow up in an unusual environment. I was immediately drawn to it because I used to live near Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Plus I love a well-written historical fiction novel about events I’m not familiar with.

 

As Bright As Heaven Book Review

When the family moves from rural Quakertown, PA to Philadlephia, PA for their father to prepare to take over his uncle’s undertaking business the life of the Bright sisters change in ways they could never imagine. Between the first World War and the Spanish influenza epidemic the girls struggle to survive in a world that seems full of death. Living in an undertaking business brings it own set of challenges. That alone got me thinking, what was it like to go to sleep knowing there was a dead body downstairs. Each sister must find their own strength to build a life. A story of family and home and survival in spite of the ever changing world.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an ARC for my review.
