To Capture What We Cannot Keep: A Novel - Beatrice Colin
I loved this book. Not only was there a love story, there was a story about the building of the Eiffel Tower. The latter being very interesting. I didn't realize all the turmoil and protests about having it built. Also, the builders were thinking it would only stand for 20 years.

I love historical fiction and learning about different things. So I pleasantly surprised when the book got into the details of the Tower. I also didn't know that Gustave Eiffel was involved in the Panama Canal, as well.

The love story was a sad one. And Gabrielle was a witch with a capital "B".

This was a very entertaining book and I very much enjoyed it. The cover is absolutely beautiful, as well.

Huge thanks to Flatiron Books for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
