Anita Abriel recommends
Where the Wandering Ends (2022)
Yvette Manessis Corporon
"Perfect for lovers of historical fiction who are eager to explore a little-known area of twentieth-century history."
All the Lights Above Us (2022)
M B Henry
"Henry's story of five uniquely different and courageous women grappling with their own turmoils while all of Europe crumbles around them is not to be missed. Written in confident and evocative prose, Henry has crafted a remarkable novel that belongs in the canons of thought provoking World War II literature."
When the Summer Was Ours (2021)
Roxanne Veletzos
"Like the gypsy music that is at the center of this wonderful novel, WHEN THE SUMMER WAS OURS is a lyrical and deeply moving story of star-crossed love during World War II, Hungary. Eva is a complex heroine and her ultimate fate is bittersweet and rewarding at the same time. Book clubs will love this intimate tale of courage and sacrifice."
