Must Get Monday – The Teacher of Warsaw

Happy Monday! The book I’m featuring this week is The Teacher of Warsaw by Mario Escobar: There are soo many books of Mario Escobar’s that I want to read that I’m impatiently waiting for them to be translated to English. Admittedly I’ve even considered attempting a couple of them in Spanish just because I don’t […]

Long Way Home

Long Way Home

My Review: Not that I haven’t enjoyed multiple books by Lynn Austin over the years, but her WWII novels she’s written recently have been rather remarkable and I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this one.  Gisela’s timeline had me gripped and I simply needed to know what happened to her. […]

The Winter Rose

The Winter Rose

My Review: We all have those authors that are on our must-read list and Melanie Dobson is absolutely one of those for me, and has proven why once again with The Winter Rose. This story gripped my heart in the very beginning and held it captive until the very end. I couldn’t set it down […]

The pace was a bit slower than some of her other reads, but the underlying questions that demanded answers kept me fully invested. I felt that the message of “history repeating itself” and the urgency to […]

Chasing Shadows

My Review: Oh, how I loved this one! Reading each of the different POV’s kept my nose deep into the pages of this one because I couldn’t seem to rest until I knew what would happen next for each of them. The danger that loomed around every corner and the suspense that kept my heartrate […]
