Talk about Parade of Shadows


Mr_TrOlOlO
It's 1907, and sixteen-year-old Julia Hamilton lives an uneventful life in London, though she dreams of seeing distant places and having exciting adventures. Her mother died of an illness when Julia was very young and her father is often traveling in his work for the British Foreign Office. When she learns her father is to take a trip to the Middle East, she begs to come along, and to her delight, her father agrees.

On the journey, Julia befriends Graham Geddes, a handsome young student from Oxford whom she learns is to be part of their tour group. Graham shows her the sights of the exotic city of Beirut - and also awakens her to the political unrest in the region. Graham is sympathetic to the Young Turks, who wish to reform the Ottoman Empire, a position Julia's father strongly disagrees with. Julia is attracted to Graham but feels torn between him and her father. Their fellow travelers, and even their tour guide, seem to have hidden motives as well.

In light of the current situation in the Middle East, it seemed particularly relevant to read about the political unrest that existed there a hundred years ago. I'd highly recommend this book to young adult readers who enjoyed the author's previous novels or who enjoy historical fiction

The story is a mix of a travel book, romance story and who-done-it. It is well written and entertaining without going into clichés.

This book is the first book by Gloria Whelan, and I will definitely be picking up her others sometime soon after reading Parade of Shadows. First, it's historical fiction, which I love. But what really makes this book is the characters. They were so well drawn and real. Julia was feisty, exciting, and an utter joy to read about. Graham was mysterious and it's impossible not to have some feelings for him after you're done reading. The writing was beautiful and mysterious and you could never really tell what was going to happen next. All in all, this was an amazing book (except for the ending, which I thought was anti-climactic.) So. Read this book and you will not be disappointed.
