Corina Marion has a father problem—namely that her Red Cross doctor of a dad has finally returned home from sixteen years of war...

...as a body in a box to be buried. 

Her mother is devastated, her friends shocked and saddened, her hometown in mourning at the loss of its local hero. And Corina, indifferent to the man she never met, is trapped in the middle of an emotional onslaught she isn't prepared to handle.

But when a strange old man confronts Corina at her father's funeral, he offers her an impossible opportunity: the chance to know the late Luther Marion. And in a moment of uncertainty, Corina makes a choice with consequences she can barely fathom. 

A choice that sends her twenty-five years into the past. To the heyday of her father's hometown. Right on the cusp of the harrowing events that will shape his life...and his death.

And in order to return to her damaged home, supportive friends, and uncertain future, Corina will have to fight tooth and nail alongside the man she's resented her entire life. Because if she doesn't help fix the past she's inadvertently changed with her presence, Luther Marion may not live long enough to become a hero at all.



Hey! Here's my review.

Set in the not too distant future in a realistic depiction of a world at war, Solace tells the story of a girl who has never met her father. She is bitter toward him for choosing to spend her whole life overseas working for the Red Cross, and then being killed. She is given the opportunity to travel back in time and get to know him. 

I loved the time travel element and found the main character likable. I could understand why she felt bitter and my opinions of her father developed along with hers as we travelled this journey together. 

I listened to the audiobook edition of this novel, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fabulous, bringing the story to life.
