The Huntress by Kate Quinn | Review

The Huntress by Kate Quinn |..

Review: Gosh, this book is remarkable. Sometimes I feel like there are so many World War II stories out there, so lately I’ve a little bit more choosy when I pick them up. But I knew this is one that I wanted to take a chance on and after only a few chapters I was […]

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne | Review

99 Percent Mine by Sally Tho..

Review: When I started this book, I had no expectations at all because I still haven’t read The Hating Game. I know, I know, I’m late to the party on that one, but it just made reading 99 Percent Mine all the better because I went in completely fresh to what Sally Thorne does, which […]

Learning To See by Elise Hooper | Review

Learning To See by Elise Hoo..

Review: It’s so, so funny how life works out sometimes. When I was in high school, my AP US History teacher of all time (my favorite teacher of all time) often started class by showing us iconic images and then facilitated critical thinking discussions about what we were seeing, what may have led the photographer […]

The Eulogist by Terry Gamble | Review

The Eulogist by Terry Gamble..

Review: The Eulogist by Terry Gamble is the story of an Irish immigrant family that comes to America in the early 1800’s. It isn’t long after their arrival that the children lose their parents, so the story is actually told as their lives unfold from 1818-1890. I tend to be most excited about historical fiction […]

The Gown by Jennifer Robson ..

Review: The Gown by Jennifer Robson tells the stories of three women: Ann and Miriam, who are embroiderers working quietly behind-the-scenes to make a Royal wedding gown in 1947, and a young woman named Heather who is working to piece together her grandmother’s mysterious past in 2016.

Review: The Hope River Series continues to be one of my favorites and I have waited impatiently for this third installment for what feels like ages.

The Reluctant Midwife by Patricia Harman | Review

The Reluctant Midwife by Pat..

Review: The Reluctant Midwife picks up about 5-ish years after The Midwife of Hope River, still in Union County, West Virginia. The story focuses on Nurse Becky Myers and her ex-boss, Dr. Isaac Blum. This book reads just fine as a standalone, but in my opinion it is much better if you’ve read the first […]

The Midwife of Hope River by..

Review: The Midwife of Hope River by Patricia Harman is one of my favorite books from one of my favorite series, and Patience Murphy is one of my all-time favorite characters. I love stories set in Appalachia, Depression-era stories, and stories with characters that are nurses. This story has all of those things and is […]

A Dangerous Duet by Karen Odden | Review

A Dangerous Duet by Karen Od..

Review: I’m a little bit new-ish to reading historical mysteries, but I’m really loving them right now. When given the opportunity to read A Dangerous Duet by Karen Odden, I jumped on it because I liked the synopsis plus I also saw that it was being described as “perfect” for fans of Anne Perry. And […]
