I enjoy historical fiction involving World War II, and The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel drew me in by its title. The tale Harmel treats us to was unputdownable. We learn the tale of a young-woman who helped hundreds flee the Nazis.
I own the hardcover edition but couldn’t resist listening to Richard Armitage narrate The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner. Believers in the power of books and Jane Austen fans alike will delight in the story that unfolds.
Chanel Cleeton has become one of those authors whose books I will buy without reading the synopsis. If you are looking for a superb historical fiction with romantic threads, look no further than The Last Train to Key West.
The Business of Blood by Kerrigan Byrne takes us to 1890, London, where the business of murder is booming. Grab a cuppa and meet feisty, determined Fiona Mahoney but prepare for trouble….
I am often drawn to fictional books that take place during WWII. I love the weaving of history and the human side of the stories. In The Prisoner’s Wife by Maggie Brookes, a Czech farm girl and a British soldier face incredible odds in the name of love.
In Close Up by Amanda Quick, a photographer soon finds herself a serial killer’s next mark. Travel to 1930s Burning Cove, California, a favorite travel destination of the stars.
After reading Genevieve Graham’s The Forgotten Home Child, I was on the lookout for more stories about orphans when I stumbled upon The Lost Orphan by Stacey Halls. Twists and a memorable story await you in 1754, London.
I first learned about Westering Women by Sandra Dallas on the Reading Frenzy, and when opportunity presented itself I grabbed my earbuds and devoured this historical fiction. I laughed, cheered and cried right along with these women on their perilous journey west.
