Memorable Monday #75

memorable-monday

Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.

This week I’m featuring:

catching the wind

Amazon | Goodreads

Catching the Wind was my first read by Melanie Dobson and after I finished reading it I instantly looked up others by her because I knew I simply had to read more. This novel was masterfully written and held my heart captive until the very end. If you haven’t read this one yet I highly recommend you give it a read. If you’d like you can see my full review for it HERE. Right now I’m reading the author’s latest release Memories of Glass and it’s another one that’s sucked me in. It’s reminded me of why I fell in love with her writing in the first place.

About the Book:

What happened to Brigitte Berthold?

That question has haunted Daniel Knight since he was thirteen, when he and eleven-year-old Brigitte escaped the Gestapo agents who arrested both their parents. They survived a harrowing journey from Germany to England, only to be separated upon their arrival. Daniel vowed to find Brigitte after the war, a promise he has fought to fulfill for more than seventy years.

Now a wealthy old man, Daniel’s final hope in finding Brigitte rests with Quenby Vaughn, an American journalist working in London. He believes Quenby’s tenacity to find missing people and her personal investment in a related WWII espionage story will help her succeed where previous investigators have failed. Though Quenby is wrestling her own demons–and wary at the idea of teaming up with Daniel’s lawyer, Lucas Hough–the lure of Brigitte’s story is too much to resist. Together, Quenby and Lucas delve deep into the past, following a trail of deception, sacrifice, and healing that could change all of their futures.
