In Thrown to the Wind, I found myself immersed in swashbuckling adventure on par with Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Etienne and his family, French Huguenots, flee from religious persecution, taking refuge in the Netherlands for awhile.

Historical fiction in setting, The Forgotten Room tells the romantic, triad tale of Olive, Lucy, and Kate. Their stories—separated by a spilt timeline of about twenty years between each perspective—paints an intricate puzzle of old passions, family ties, and secrets.

Book Review for What the Wind Knows – Anne, a fiction writer, travels to Dromahair, Ireland to see where her grandfather, Eoin, came from and what family heritage she can discover. Anne uncovers more than mere history; she steps into it.

Set during Hitler and Stalin’s ethnic purges of Slavic countries, Salt to the Sea tells the story, in first-person, of a group of people fleeing to board a ship destined for safer harbors. Little do they know what awaits them.

m so pleased to feature historical fiction author, Pamela Binnings Ewen today. By following Pamela on Instagram, I heard about her new book, The Queen of Paris, released in early April of this year. It sounded so good. Months ago, I requested an interview with her and an advanced copy to read and review. She accepted, and at her request, her publishing company, Black Stone publishing, sent me a copy of The Queen of Paris, a novel about Coco Chanel.

I found The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter a tragic, detailed drama of what it might be like to live in a lighthouse and just how much it might demand of you.

I plan to post every Wednesday with an update on my reading and share a photo and/or review of a book that I have read, starting with this sweet historical fiction book by Rachel Fordham.
