It isn’t often that a novel sends you rushing to the web to look up Quantum physics – but such is the power of Danny Scheinmann’s Random Acts of Heroic Love that you can’t help it. At least I can’t. You can look up quantum physics if you feel like it, but the book takes a good bit of effort. However, it is vastly rewarding. The cover declares – Two tales of love, two stories of loss, one great emotional journey. In fact I suspect it can be everyone’s journey. I learnt things about the Russian Revolution, WWI, Communism, South America and modern life. The two heroes are separated by more than seventy years of distance and more than two cultures.
Now I need time to rest and assimilate.
Oh and by the way, Neil, our librarian with the library van certainly knows how to pick them.
