In Reflection: The Paul Mann Story by Titan Frey, Paul Mann, a 104-year-old man in a nursing home gets a visit from his son Mike and his ten-year-old grandson Marlin. Marlin discovers that his grandfather has kept a journal since he was a boy and allows Marlin to read it when Mike drops him off before work. Marlin discovers many things he did not know about his grandfather and grandmother and the years that they spent together and being separated by World War II. Spending time with Paul, listening to his stories as well as reading from the journals, Marlin finds that the more he learns about Paul the more he loves and respects him and his adventures in life.

Reflection: The Paul Mann Story by Titan Frey is a wonderful story with a solid plot and characters that are strongly developed so that the reader feels connected to them. I love how Reflection pulls at the heartstrings as young Marlin reads through the journals that relate the love between Paul and Carol and the horrors of World War II as Paul lived and wrote about it. Frey has provided a story that takes the reader through the many adventures that live on in an old man’s mind and writings. I recommend Reflection to anyone who loves history in general and recognizes how important it is to learn the pain and truth in the first-hand accounts that cannot be found in history books.
