View From the Sixth Floor, by Elizabeth Horton-Newton is a wonderful new approach to a generationally-formative topic, namely the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The fifty plus years of dissecting and rehashing that fateful day in Dallas have brought us no closer to really knowing what happened, and perhaps we will never know. But if you like history, and mystery, View from the Sixth Floor will keep you wondering what is coming next. Ms Horton-Newton has turned the story on its ear. I thought I was reading a romance story about a old couple roadtripping to Dallas. I knew there had to be more so I kept reading, and I was both pleasantly surprised by the story, and caught flat-footed by the constant twists. Making a book about the Kennedy assassination interesting to a reader who watched the events unfold on TV those many years ago is a challenge. This story surpassed all my measures of a good story. The characters are very real and personable. What I thought was a slow beginning was actually the first upward climb on every roller-coaster I've ever been on. You keep moving, and then you're hanging on. Well, that's what this story will do for you. Well done and thought-provoking.
