The Way of Beauty by Camille Di Maio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve always believed a place can hold the ghosts and memories of the past, such as loves lost and found. In Camille Di Maio’s newest novel, The Way of Beauty, Penn Station in New York is just such a place. As it is about to be demolished, Vera and her daughter Alice each reminisce about the impact the station has had on their lives. Early in her life, Vera discovered friendship in front of the station. As she became an adult, that friendship slowly built into a burning love for her dear friend, Angelo. Years later, Vera’s daughter, Alice, met a mysterious man at Penn Station and fell madly into a passionate love that ended abruptly. Di Maio expertly portrays each character’s story while keeping the reader engaged. The characters quickly become beloved. This may go down as my favorite read of 2018!
