The Train of Small Mercies by David Rowell
Thank you, David Rowell, for transporting me to a time before I was born and giving me a glimpse of what Senator Robert Kennedy truly meant to our nation in 1968. My generation will always remember where we were on September 11th. Your work of fiction provided me with another generation's "Where Were You" the day Robert Kennedy's funeral train crossed the east coast to bury a man who could have changed our country through presidency.
Glimpsing just one day in your characters lives left me craving more.
