Hello, SE Readers. It’s time for another Friday book share. I drew the honors this month and decided to look back into my archives.
I’ve always been interested in history and the assasination President John F. Kennedy. Theories about the assassination have floated around for years. Was there more than one shooter? Were shots fired from the grassy knoll? Could Oswald have fired the fatal shot from the sixth-floor window?
I suppose conspiracy theories will continue as long as there is interest. I’ve wavered back and forth on the idea of multiple shooters, watched the Zapruder film, and I still don’t know what to believe.
A few years ago, I came across the book Frame 232 by Wil Mara. It’s a fictional story based on the mysterious Babushka Lady, who some believe may have filmed the assassination. If such a film exists, it could provide new information as she was standing closer to the motorcade than Abraham Zapruder.
The time had come, she decided, to rid herself of this burden, to take the steps necessary to put the matter to rest once and for all. And the first step, she knew—against every instinct and desire—was to watch that film.
During the reading of her mother’s will, Sheila Baker discovers that she has inherited everything her parents ever possessed, including their secrets. A mysterious safe deposit box key leads her to the answers to one of history’s greatest conspiracies: who killed John F. Kennedy? Not only does she have the missing film, revealing her mother as the infamous babushka lady, but she has proof that there was more than one shooter.
On the run from people who would stop at nothing to keep secrets buried, Shelia turns to billionaire sleuth Jason Hammond for help. Having lost his own family in a tragic plane crash, Jason knows a thing or two about running from the past. With a target on their backs, can Jason uncover the truth in time, or will this shooter finally make their mark?
The book was intriguing and opened up some fascinating possibilities. It was fast-paced and kept me wanting to turn the pages.
