Sophia Rose is here during Harlequin’s Summer Historical Fiction Blog Tour and she is sharing a fantastic WW!! novel, Radar Girls by Sara Ackerman. Check out her thoughts and read an excerpt. I cannot wait to read this one!
Every time I listen to a novel by Genevieve Graham I not only meet endearing characters but I learn more about the history of Canada and its role during significant moments in our world history. In Letters Across the Sea, we learn about Canada’s depression and their roles during WWII. Come see why I fell in love with this story…
I love a good historical fiction, especially when it’s based on actual events, people and places. The Rose Code by Kate Quinn takes us to Bletchley Park and shares the fascinating story of a group of decoders during WWII.
A story with a library, set in WWII and in Paris? That was all I needed, I didn’t even read the synopsis for The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles. Imagine my surprise when parts of the book take place in Montana! A beautiful story of love, loss and books.
So a favorite author of mine messaged me and said, “You need to read The Spoon Stealer.” and so I did. I cannot thank her enough for recommending it to me. Lesley Crewe delivered a historical, timeless, heartwarming tale of friendship, family, loss and being the odd duck.
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 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.
Whenever I listen to a Genevieve Graham novel, I am transported to another time and place. Travel with me to the fall of 1939 as we gain entry to a small fishing community in Nova Scotia in Come Far Away.
