The Last Year of the War by Susan Meissner was a poignant, powerful story that shared friendship as it shined a light on American internment camps during World War II. Narrated by Kimberly Farr I found myself immersed in the stories of Elise Sontag and Mariko Inoue.
I was drawn to The Binding by Bridget Collins for it’s gorgeous cover and promising premise. Collins introduces us to the binding of memories and the damage forgetting painful memories or worse precious ones can do.
When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton shares Beatriz Perez’s story. Rich in the history of the 1960s and the Cold War, it also shares a forbidden romance as Beatriz fights to free her beloved Cuba.
A Dangerous Collaboration is the fourth Veronica Speedwell novel by Deanna Raybourn. Once again she treats us to a suspenseful mystery. The interactions between Veronica and Stoker. were both frustrating and exciting!
Last year I read The Orphan Train by this author and was excited to receive the audiobook for The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff. Narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden, Henrietta Meire, and Candace Thaxton, Jenoff shares a story of passion, courage, betrayal, discovery.
Ashes in the Snow by Ruta Sepetys takes us on one family’s perilous journey as she shares stories of human endurance and the horrors they faced. Poignant and inspiring this story will stay forever in your memory.
This series is brilliant. One of my favorite Sherlock Holmes retellings EVER! The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas is the third book in the Lady Sherlock series. I picked up all three audiobook versions, and FINALLY in November listened to them all for a challenge.
