The Forgotten Room Book Cover

I LOVED this book!

The Forgotten Room is a unique literary venture as it was written by the combined efforts of Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig.

WW2 Historical Fiction

book cover

I'm a frequent reader of historical fiction and my favourite books in this genre tend to be set in and around the Second World War.

An historical love triangle

Along the infinite sea is Beatriz Williams' final book in the Schuyler sisters series. When I picked this book up I was simply intrigued by the story, not knowing it was part of a series. So, having not read the previous books, I can tell you that the story has no problem standing on its own.

Great for a book club!

The Muralist by B.A. Shapiro is an inventive take on a common theme in historical fiction novels. Although the story takes place in New York on the verge of the Second World War, it is not your average war novel.

I was crying when Rosette died...

I was crying when Rosette died - a beautiful mulatta girl, who for me symbolized love, not only romantic but interracial love, and a hope for better interracial relationships. 

A must read!

The Girl from the train is by far one of the best books that I read this past year.

Another great read from Morton!

Kate Morton has done it again - her latest release, The Lake House, is an absolutely fantastic read.
