Tracey Quintin Gives Historical Fiction a Try and Loves It

Title:  What Happened to Alex Manning?
(The Manning Family Series Book 1)
Author: Kim Scott
Genre:  History, Americas, 20th Century, Literature & Fiction, Historical Fiction, Historical
Reviewer's Rating: 5 star

Reviewed by Tracey Quintin originally for Goodreads

WOW! Kim Scott sure knows how to deliver a story of historic fiction!

This story starts in the 1700's and takes you through the early 1900's of The Manning Family. An incredible journey through the centuries with a strong family legacy to be upheld.

The Manning family endures love, loss, tragedy, financial woes, and secrets.

I have a knot in my stomach right now writing this and thinking of all the things the generations of this family endured. Details of the time periods and world events are intertwined in the story giving you vivid details.

I'm typically not a reader of historic fiction books but I've heard and seen a lot about this book and boy am I glad I read it! It took me a couple of chapters to get captivated because I don't typically read this genre BUT man it sure became quite the page turner! I had to know what was going to happen next. Yes, I even went through strong emotions at events as they transpired.

I highly recommend this book to all. Kuddo's to Kim for a brilliantly written story. I will definitely be reading more of Kim's work!!
