I enjoyed this book greatly.
The mystery kept me turning page after page quickly.
Memorable characters and you will feel transported to
the English countryside. Will recommend to friends
and I give this book 5 stars.
My passion is reading books and creating images about books.
I am at a loss for words, to convey how amazing Paula McLain's
Love and Ruin is. While I have read Ernest Hemingway's novels,
I had no idea what a troubled life he lived.
Totally fascinating and so well written that I felt
sure Mrs McClain was with Hem and Martha, when all this took place.
Definitely 5 stars from page one to the end.
Her author notes had me in tears.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys historical fiction.
I love a good WWII genre book
and this is one I truly enjoyed.
The author made me feel the
pressure of living in London right
before WWII and not knowing
what was coming next.
The mystery of 'who done it"
was an extra bonus in a well told story. Well developed characters that you will
love and some you will hate.
I would recommend this book to friends
and give it a 5 star rating.
In the Shadow of 10,000 Hills is a deeply moving story that takes you from the strife of Atlanta during the Civil Rights Movement, through the struggle in post-genocide Rwanda. The book is a riveting page-turner. One that is not easily put down and definitely not easily forgotten Memorable characters will make you feel a part of their lives as they deal with family conflict, love and profound loss. I would highly recommend this book.
This book is historical fiction set in Philadelphia in the early 1900s. From the first page, this book pulled me in. I loved reading from each character's perspective of what was happening to each of them. I did not know that much about Spanish flu, and had no idea it was such a factor in the lives of Americans and especially Philadelphia. I felt the author really made me feel in the story and become a part of their world in Philadelphia in that time period. This is a novel about overcoming tragedy, hardship and even death to loved ones. It will tug at your heartstrings and you will shed a tear as you come to love each of the characters and cheer for them. I could not put this book down and did not want it to end. Definitely 5 stars for this one.
I love a great second chance romance and this is one of them. I adored both the hero and heroine and the adventures between them. Through in some mystery and flashbacks to their first meeting, made for an enjoyable read that kept wanting to read on. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants a fun historical romance.
