Friday Finds ~ September 16th

What great books did you hear about/discover this past week? Share your FRIDAY FINDS! This weekly event is hosted by Should Be Reading.

I saw this book featured on Shelf Awareness’ Author Buzz this week. I’m not sure what caught my eye more, the soothing blue of the cover or the intriguing description. A novel that explores the nature of time, the merging of past and present and has a mysterious physicist sounds like a book made for me.

Fare Forward
by Wendy Dubow Polins

At the crossroads of cutting edge physics and ancient mysticism, is a story about three generations of family and their search for the things that transcend time.

Gabriella Vogel is a young architecture student who is standing on the threshold of the beginning of everything in her life. As her grandfather—the world-famous physicist, Sydney Vogel—is about to receive the Nobel Prize and reveal his stunning proof about the nature of Time, Gabriella knows that everything we take for granted will come into question. She must decide—are chance encounters, the merging of past and present, and intersections in art and science mere accidents? What are the things in life worth fighting for?

When she meets a mysterious physicist, Benjamin Landsman, she will finally understand why her own future is tied up in the connection between Albert Einstein’s theories and a secret that has been hidden in the Judean Desert for generations. What she does not expect to learn is that Benjamin, the man she believes is her destiny, has been at the center of her grandfather’s research for hundreds of years, had met her grandmother on an archaeological dig sixty years earlier, and that he hasn’t aged … at all.

Description above is from the author’s page.

    This sounds good, as long as it’s not too scientific!

    That does sound like an interesting book and the cover is very eye-catching. I haven’t seen the Friday Finds meme before…I think this is one I will be participating in!
