Searching for Eternity

Searching for Eternity by Elizabeth Musser is a novel about Emile de Bonnery. He suddenly has to move from France to Atlanta, Georgia in the 1960's. He is a thirteen year old who is struggling to fit into life there, though he would rather be in France. It is a story of loss, hope, love, and letting go. It spans three decades-taking part in the 60's, 70's and 80's. I enjoyed reading this book by Musser. Her descriptions of both France and Atlanta are done well. The characters are likable but not perfect. I would recommend this to people that are interested in history or current events.

Decades, you mean, I think. Spanning three centuries would be quite a bit for a single book.
