View From the Sixth Floor: An Oswald Tale by Elizabeth Horton-Newton

A fascinating and unique take on an unforgettable event in American history.

The book is as much a romance as it is a thriller. It's well-written and the story ticks along at a steady pace.

The main characters of the story, Olivia and Bill, are believable and make a great couple. It was refreshing to read a book in which the protagonists were older than I am!

The book is written in the first person and after a page or two, I felt like Olivia was telling her story to me personally and from that moment on I was hooked on this interesting and enjoyable read!


This romantic thriller takes a fictional "what if" look at the JFK assassination. Suppose accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald had lived to defend himself. Imagine if 50 years after the assassination someone stepped forward to reveal the truth of what happened that day. What if the assassination was a conspiracy and the impact of those revelations reached into the 21st century? This is the story of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. You'll never look at your neighbors the same way.

The Author:

Just ten years old when President John Kennedy was assassinated she was deeply affected by the event and its aftermath. Her second book "Riddle" was released in June 2015.
