The Rubber Room

When it comes to historical fiction books, it is necessary that the set consists of realistic events from the past but be written as fiction. "The Rubber Room" by Ivan Bosanko has an unusual title that has a deep meaning once the reader delves into the story. The plot revolves around a young couple who must deal with the changes in their lives as they enter adulthood and embark on a new adventure. They'll be put to the test to see if they can stick by each other or if they'll fall apart. Commitment and faith are a challenge that is difficult to deal with; will they be able to survive?

Aside from the romance and undying love written in the novel, it has some touches of history inserted into some scenes and scenarios. For example, the McCray family's dinner conversation about the problems in the railroad where the old McCray works is somehow related to the 1950s railroad strike. Aside from that, the novel also features a short discourse on the Korean War that causes a massive turn of events in the story, perfect for the genre of historical fiction.

Ivan Bosanko’s historical fiction "The Rubber Room" will surely give the tension a story needs. Just like its title suggests, it will hold its readers' interest and curiosity till they finish the book.

Author's Notes

The story that I’ve written also shows the diversity of the characters despite their differences in social status, beliefs, religion, and practices. This is to show that no matter how different we are from other people, some are willing to accept us. Aside from that, this book is also a product of my critical research exposing the railroad industry’s deepest secrets. I researched and checked for the best history books that I could use as references for my historical fiction novel. Historians called it the "Age of Enlightenment", a decade of change, a time to make a difference, to change or bend what’s been practiced.
