BlogHer Book Club: A Good American

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club, however opinions are my own.

Upon first glance, I didn’t think I’d like A Good American. You see, it’s a historical novel, and while I am interested in history, I’ve just never been that interested in historical novels. But, I’m glad I gave it a second look. It’s definitely reminded me that I shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, title, etc.

Set during WWI, A Good American is about Frederick and Jette, a couple who married and fled Germany to escape Jette’s disapproving family. Frederick falls madly in love with his adopted country and does everything he can to become a good American. This is a story about love, devotion, music, food and family.

I really enjoyed this book and I’m glad I read it. I think you might like it, too. If you’re on the fence, be sure to check out the discussions over at

(I’ll not be judging books by their genres anymore.)
