The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sarah E Ladd

Cornwall England 1811Cordelia Greythorne’s life had taken many painful and heartbreaking roads. Her situation grabbed at my heart right from the start. There were secrets alluded to also that had me curious and reading as fast as I could. Sometimes I wondered who really were the “good” guys and who were the “bad” guys. Finding work as a governess to five children after her husband passed away gave her a purpose and an income. She came to love them all and felt responsible for their care, safety…See More

The Baggage Handler by David Rawlings

I sat down and read this in one sitting. A very thought provoking novel with an almost otherworld quality. There were certainly things that happened that could not be explained. This novel brings in three characters that get their luggage mixed up after a flight. They are prompted to go to a facility in the “boonies” to exchange suitcases but get a whole lot more than they bargain for. We all carry excess “baggage” around everyday that we don’t want to let go of. I began thinking about…See More

The White City by Grace Hitchcock

This novel is set in Chicago 1893, during the World’s Fair. People are coming to the city from all over increasing the crime rate by thieves, pickpockets, shysters, even murderers. Based partially on fact, this story drew me in and kept my heart pounding during certain events. Winnifred sees a woman being forced by a man to leave the fair by gunpoint. Her accusations are overlooked at first by her Inspector father. But for safety reasons and to ease his mind, he asks Detective Jude Thorpe to…See More

The Golden Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse

Posted on April 3, 2019 at 2:05pm 0 Comments

This is the eighth book in The Daughters of the Mayflower series and I’ve enjoyed everyone. Reading about American history using fictional characters (some even actual people) makes learning so much fun! Kimberley Woodhouse has done her research in The Golden Bride and it was quite eye-opening.

Centered around the California Gold rush of 1849, Olivia Brighton finds herself in a wicked, filthy, overcrowded environment when she travels to find her brother. Her last living relative after…

The Songbird and the Spy by J’Nell Ciesielski

Posted on April 2, 2019 at 4:56pm 0 Comments

During WWII Churchhill put together a secret spy ring from some of the British soldiers. They were trained in various aspects. In this novel the character Michael learned how to secretly decode messages from the Germans. He infiltrated the German army as a captain, a spy for the allies. He could have been caught at any moment and killed for what he was doing so it kept my heart pounding with each mission he undertook.

Claire was a music student and took a break to…
