Suggestions for your end-of-summer reading
Short and simple. Read on!
If you haven't noticed before, I'm a reader. Here are some of the books I've picked up in the past few weeks:
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd was a book-club read that I gobbled up. It's a historical novel based on real characters, which I didn't realize until I was nearly finished. Good, good, good!
The Cryptographer's Dilemma by Johnnie Alexander is a WW II novel based on true events. It's so good! I really got into the character's heads and went on a journey with them. In the end, I was satisfied.
When the Day Comes by Gabrielle Meyer is my pick for my book club's next read. It's a genre called time-slip fiction, where the story is divided between two different time periods. This character's life jumps from 1774 Colonial Williamsburg to 1914 Gilded Age New York City. Can't wait to start it!
I'm about halfway through More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer, and it is adorable! This is historical fiction at a time and place when women couldn't own a business. The heroine decides to bypass the law by marrying the handsome man who eats breakfast in her bakery daily. The only catch is that instead of "first comes love, then comes marriage," this couple married first. Sweet, funny, moving.
Happy reading, friends!
