Author: John Boyne
Style: Historical Fiction, Coming of Age, LBGTQ,
Rating: 5/5

“I remember a friend of mine once telling me that we hate what we fear in ourselves.”

Cyril was born out of wedlock and his birth mother cast away.  He is adopted by a rich family, the Avery's, in Dublin who provided him a safe home but never considered him a true Avery. He comes to know Julian Woodbead and they become best friends.   He spends his entire life trying to find who he is and where he belongs.  The Heart's of Invisible Furies is the historical tale of life in Dublin in the 1940's and beyond.

This story is a beautiful masterpiece.  John Boyne is truly a wonderful storyteller with raw and authentic characters that fill your soul with so much emotion that you weep for joy and cry from heartache.  I loved everything about this book.  I am struggling to convey the beauty that is this book.  The story is breathtaking and beautiful.  This is my second John Boyne book and I feel like I need to own every book he's ever written.
