All the Lights Above Us by M. B. Henry ~ a Review

by Donna Huber



I'm a big reader of WWII fiction and I love finding unique perspectives on the era. All the Lights Above had a great premise. I've read other stories that include D-Day but it is usually from the perspective of military people - either the allies landing at Normandy or the French Resistance in France eagerly awaiting the invasion. This book told the story from the perspective of 5 women in different places and roles.

2 Books of Historical Fiction to Read on Vacation

by Susan Roberts


 
If you are a big historical fiction reader then you know that there are often more books coming out each month than we can get read. Most of the time they are not the quick read of a romance novel, though the rich characters and historical information they impart are definitely worth the tradeoff. Summer vacation can be a great time to catch up on some of the titles you might have missed. Today, I have two that came on in May. The second one, in particular, would be great to read if you are doing a staycation as the descriptions of the Caribbean island setting will have you mentally at the beach.

The Clackity by Lora Senf ~ a Review

by MK French


Blight Harbor is the seventh-most haunted town in America, and Evie Von Rathe lives there with her Aunt Desdemona, the local paranormal expert. Des' only rule is to stay out of the abandoned slaughterhouse, but Evie searches there when Des goes missing. The Clackity is a creature who lives in the shadows of the slaughterhouse and will return Des in exchange for the ghost of John Jeffrey Pope, a serial killer who stalked Blight Harbor a hundred years earlier. Evie must go through an otherworld filled with witches, ghosts, and a memory-thief, pursued by a dead man whose only goal is to add Evie to his collection of lost souls.

Tom Clancy Zero Hour by Don Bentley ~ a Review

by Donna Huber



After I graduated from college, I found myself for the first time as an adult with enough time to read for pleasure. Yet, I had no idea what I liked to read. What I had last read for pleasure in high school no longer interested me. My mom had a shelf full of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels. I enjoyed the movies that had been made from the books. I picked up my first novel Cardinal in the Kremlin, and I was hooked. Even though Clancy has died, there are a few authors that have continued the series. And I'm still enjoying the adventures in black op espionage.

Carolina Moonset by Matt Goldman ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts
 


"What's the story with this painting?  This painting is about the darkest time.  When you can't see any light.  When you can't see a way out.  When you're hopeless.  It's fascinating." (p 166)
