In May 2000, Joel Smith is a cocky, adventurous young man who sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior, days from graduation, enters an abandoned Montana mine, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity. He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can’t use, money he can’t spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of Whirlaway, swing dancing, and a peacetime draft, Joel begins a new life as the nation drifts toward war. With the help of his 21-year-old trailblazing grandmother and her friends, he finds his place in a world he knew only from movies and books. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, Joel must decide whether to leave his new love in the past or choose a course that will alter their lives forever. THE MINE is a love story that follows a humbled man through a critical time in history as he adjusts to new surroundings and wrestles with the knowledge of things to come.”>>

Review : I

n the first chapters the book is like a Indiana Jones adventure

I just wanted to take part in! Joel is a real adventurer and he suprises me. He is more romantic than I thought. It’s like Indiana Jones meets Pearl Habor romantic. And I love the movie Pearl Habor which is why I love this book. The combination of the characters, the story and the writing style made this book a very special journey.
It is the perfect book for a history freak like me.
Especially the characters are amazing. Grace has the beauty of Marilyn Monroe and the perfect character of Angelina Jolie. She is such a beautiful woman. I am very happy for her that she found such an amazing guy like Joel. But all the time I thought I know how this book ends. And then I cried.
This just shows me how good and refreshing this book was. I am still sitting her tinking about this book and what it did to me. A clear 5 Star-read!
