The Pretender by Ta’Mara Hanscom was a book I thought I would really enjoy but in the end, I was bored throughout most of the book.  There were parts throughout the book that I did like but they never lasted long, and I always ended up bored and wanting to pick up something else to read.  This is the first book I have read by this author, and I don’t know that I will get any others to read.  This book was well written, but I just didn’t connect with the author and the characters in the book.  This does happen from time to time, and it makes me sad when it does happen, and I have to review the book because I hate having to leave reviews like this one.  Like I said it was well written and I am sure that it will be a great book for other people it just wasn’t the right fit for me.

About The Book

Set in South Dakota in 1975, where eighteen-year-olds could order 3.2 beer in a bar, and loaded guns were kept under the counter.
Frankie Valli sang “My Eyes Adored You,” and American soldiers returning from Vietnam struggled with their new reality.
It’s within this tumultuous season of American history that Tillie Caselli meets Noah Hansen, and they are never the same again. Their lives were mysteriously intertwined-and had been for many years-yet they had no idea.
From the moment they met, Tillie and Noah wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, but a deliberate omission will keep them apart—and that same omission will be responsible for the escape of a murderer, and a bride’s deception.

Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Many Sparrows by Lori Benton isn’t one of my favorite historical fiction books that I have read in the past year or so.  I had a tough time getting into the book, and I also had a hard time wanting to read this book.  I found that when I would put it down that, I wouldn’t go right back to it.  I read several other books while I was reading this one which isn’t something that I usually do.  I think my biggest problem was how slow this book seemed to go.  There were quite a few places that I wondered why they didn’t cut them out.  I felt bad for Clare throughout the book because of all of the horrible things that she had to go through.  I know that they only reason I kept reading what because I wanted to know what going to happen to Clare and how things were going to turn out for her.  If you love historical fiction novels than I would pick this book up or at least read other reviews to see if it would be a right for you.  If you have read this book what did you think of it?

About The Book

Either she and her children would emerge from that wilderness together, or none of them would. . . .
In 1774, the Ohio-Kentucky frontier pulses with rising tension and brutal conflicts as Colonists push westward and encroach upon Native American territories. The young Inglesby family is making the perilous journey west when an accident sends Philip back to Redstone Fort for help, forcing him to leave his pregnant wife Clare and their four-year old son Jacob on a remote mountain trail.
When Philip does not return and Jacob disappears from the wagon under the cover of darkness, Clare awakens the next morning to find herself utterly alone, in labor and wondering how she can to recover her son . . . especially when her second child is moments away from being born.
Clare will face the greatest fight of her life, as she struggles to reclaim her son from the Shawnee Indians now holding him captive. But with the battle lines sharply drawn, Jacob’s life might not be the only one at stake. When frontiersman Jeremiah Ring comes to her aid, can the stranger convince Clare that recovering her son will require the very thing her anguished heart is unwilling to do-be still, wait and let God fight this battle for them?

About The Author

The House of Moody Avenue by Cellestine Hannemann

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from BookLook in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The House of Moody Avenue by Cellestine Hannemann wasn’t my favorite book, to say the least, but I still did enjoy parts of this book.  I had a tough time staying interested in this book.  At times I found it hard to know who was talking.  I also felt the book was rushed in some places and in other places I felt like there were way too many details.  I did like most of the characters in this book though.  I also liked the plot of this book because it was different from anything other than I ever remember reading in the past.   I am sure that is the way I did enjoy parts of this book and why I didn’t want to just stop reading it.  Usually, when I read books that don’t keep my attention I have a hard time finishing them, and I usually give up on them.  I am sure that this book will work for some people, but I wasn’t one of them.

About The Book

An eclectic assortment of humanity, with all their foibles and failings, lived in the house on Moody Avenue over a period of ninety years. I tell their stories.

Lisette, her unshakable faith sustaining her, is undeterred in the face of adversity; Julia, a social-climbing snob, sees her world crumble when her children marry inappropriately; Clarence, a Casper Milquetoast bank clerk, absconds with a quarter of a million dollars; Frances, a country girl, comes to the big city to marry a rich man; Sammy, a black man, passes for white.

Beatnik squatters, high on LSD, burn down the condemned ninety-year-old house, leaving it naught but a precious memory in the hearts of those who once sought its shelter.

A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White was an okay book for the most part.  I did get bored from time to time because of all the details that are in this book.  I am sure this wouldn’t have bothered me if I was more interested in the book but I had a tough time staying interested in this book.  I know that is probably because it is a historical fiction book and it takes place before WWI, and I have a harder time staying interested in those types of books.  This book is really well written, and I did like the characters.  I think the reason I was bored with the book was that of the time period and it being so far out of the time periods that I enjoy reading.  If you like historical fiction from this time period than I am sure that you would enjoy this book.

About The Book

Edwardian Romance and History Gains a Twist of Suspense

Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they concentrate on stealing high-value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. But when Rosemary must determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany, she is in for the challenge of a lifetime. How does one steal a family’s history, their very name?

Peter Holstein, given his family’s German blood, writes his popular series of adventure novels under a pen name. With European politics boiling and his own neighbors suspicious of him, Peter debates whether it might be best to change his name for good. When Rosemary shows up at his door pretending to be a historian and offering to help him trace his family history, his question might be answered.

But as the two work together and Rosemary sees his gracious reaction to his neighbors’ scornful attacks, she wonders if her assignment is going down the wrong path. Is it too late to help him prove that he’s more than his name?

About The Author

Roseanna M. White pens her novels beneath her Betsy Ross flag, with her Jane Austen action figure watching over her. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two children, editing and designing, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of over a dozen historical novels and novellas, ranging from biblical fiction to American-set romances to her British series. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to make their way into her novels . . . To offset her real life, which is blessedly boring. She passes said boring life with her husband and kids in the beautiful mountains of eastern West Virginia.

The Devils Cold Dish by Eleanor Kuhns

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The Devils Cold Dish by Eleanor Kuhns was a great historical fiction book.  I loved this book, and for the first time in a while, I didn’t get bored while reading a historical fiction book.  This the 5 book in the series but you have to read them in order because this is the first book I read, and I had no problem following along with what is going on in it.  This is the first book that I have read by this author, and I can’t wait until I have the time to check out her other books.  She wrote in such a way that I forgot from time to time that I was reading a historical fiction book.  I loved that she was able to do that because it made the book fly by and I was able to read in just a few days.  If you aren’t the biggest fan of historical fiction books than I would tell you to give this book a shot because I think it is one that most people would enjoy even if this isn’t their favorite genre to read.

About The Book

In the next 1790s historical mystery from MWA Award winner Eleanor Kuhns, Will Rees’ small farm town begins to suspect his wife of murder by witchcraft

Will Rees is back home on his farm in 1796 Maine with his teenage son, his pregnant wife, their five adopted children, and endless farm work under the blistering summer sun. But for all that, Rees is happy to have returned to Dugard, Maine, the town where he was born and raised, and where he’s always felt at home. Until now. When a man is found dead – murdered – after getting into a public dispute with Rees, Rees starts to realize someone is intentionally trying to pin the murder on him. Then, his farm is attacked, his wife is accused of witchcraft, and a second body is found that points to the Rees family. Rees can feel the town of Dugard turning against him, and he knows that he and his family won’t be safe there unless he can find the murderer and reveal the truth…before the murderer gets to him first.

My Daughters Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould

My Daughter's Legacy Mindy Starns Clark Leslie Gould

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

My Daughters Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould was a great book. I think this book was super fun because it switched between current times and the civil war. I loved getting both of the different views and things like that. I think that this is the best way to read a historical fiction book because you get to look at both parts of the book with different eyes. I have gotten bored while reading other books that are just historical fiction but because this book has both views I didn’t get bored. This is the first book I read by either of these authors, and I am for sure going to read the first two books in this series because I enjoyed this book that much.   If you aren’t the biggest fan of historical fiction, I think that this book would be a good fit for you.

More Than A Soldier by D.M. Annechino

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Italy Book Reviews in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

More Than A Soldier by D.M. Annechino was a fantastic book.  Anyone who has followed my reviews for just about any length of time knows that I love any book that has to do with WWII and this book was no different.  This book is based on a true story, and I loved it because I love knowing that a real person had lived through the things that happened in this book.  I have read other books by this author, and I really do enjoy his writing.  I can’t say enough good things about this book because I am such a love of books like this one.  I loved that as I was reading this book, I felt like I was there with Angelo and I felt like I was there with him.  I was able to understand how he was feeling because the author did such a great job making you feel like you are with the character.  If you are looking for a new WWII book to read this summer, I think that you will love this book just as much as I do.

About The Book

Feeling a patriotic duty to defend his country after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, seventeen-year-old, Angelo J. DiMarco, enlists in the U.S. Army. Severely short of frontline fighters, the Army rushes Angelo through Ranger training and sends him to Italy as part of the 1st Ranger Battalion. Their objective: stop the German invasion.

Fighting on the front lines in Italy, the German’s teach Angelo a sobering lesson on life when they capture him during the bloody Battle of Cisterna. Against insurmountable odds, Angelo miraculously escapes in a way that stretches the imagination. He survives behind enemy lines for over five months, hiding from the Germans and trying to outmaneuver them. He begs for food, sleeps in barns and suffers from many ailments, including dehydration, malnutrition, malaria, and exposure to the elements.

More Than a Soldier is Angelo DiMarco’s powerful story of survival, resilience, and courage.

The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race Mike Mizrahi

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race by Mike H. Mizrahi left a smile on my face the entire time I was reading it.  I loved it because of how commonplace it is now for everyone to ride a bike.  This was such a fun and cute book that I was sad when it was over.  I really enjoyed this author writing, and I hope that he will write more books that I can read because like I said I really did enjoy his book.  I fell in love with Anna and Peter right from the start, and I spent the entire book hoping that they would get together because I thought that they were perfect for each other.  If you are looking for a fun book to read this summer, I would recommend this book to you.  If you have read it what did you think of it?  Do you have any books that I should check out this summer?

About The Book

Chattanooga society is turned upside down as a young woman has the audacity to ride a bicycle in bloomers!
It’s 1895. Anna Gaines, 19, struggles to conquer her insecurities after a horrible fall years ago from her beloved horse, Longstreet. On a visit with her aunt in Brooklyn, she’s drawn to the new pastime of bicycling. But back at home, cycling is a scandalous sport for a proper lady. Southern women did not engage in activities meant for men.
Anna has her eye on Peter Sawyer, president of the Cycling Club. As community outrage grows, an unexpected turn of events pits Anna against Peter in a race between the sexes.
Will Anna prove that women deserve the same right as men to ride “the wheel?” Will she choose to live a quiet, traditional life of a housewife and mother? Or will she pursue college and become one of the “new women” emerging into the twentieth century on the seat of a bicycle? What will become of the spark between Anna and Peter?
Faith, patience, and courage help Anna to become the person she was meant to be.

The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa was a great book.  I am a huge fan of books like this because WWII is so interesting to me and this book was one of the better ones that I have read lately.  I love that this book goes between Hannah’s time and also modern times as you follow along with Anna.  I also love that this book talked about things I didn’t know had happened during WWII.  I have read tons of books about WWII, and I loved that I was able to learn about some of the other things that people dealt with during WWII.  I was sad when this book came to an end because I loved all of the characters in this book.  This book is also the first book that I have read by this author, and after this book, I have added him to my list of authors that I want to read more books by in the future.  If you love WWII books and are looking something different I would recommend this book to you.

About The Book

A stunningly ambitious and beautiful debut novel, perfect for fans of Sarah’s Key and All the Light We Cannot See, the story of a twelve-year-old girl’s harrowing experience fleeing Nazi-occupied Germany with her family and best friend, only to discover that the overseas asylum they had been promised is an illusion.

In 1939 before everything changed, Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. Her family moved in Berlin’s highest social circles, admired by friends and neighbors. Eleven-year-old Hannah was often taken by her mother for an afternoon treat at the tea room of the beautiful Adlon Hotel, both dressed in their finest clothes. She spent her afternoons at the park with her best friend Leo Martin. But, in an instant, that sunlit world vanished. Now the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; their fine possessions are hauled away, and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home. The two friends make a pact: come what may, they promise to have a future together.

As Hannah and Leo’s families desperately begin to search for a means of escape, a glimmer of hope appears when they discover the Saint Louis, a transatlantic liner that can give Jews safe passage to Cuba. After a frantic search to obtain visas, the Rosenthals and the Martins depart from Hamburg on the luxurious passenger liner bound for Havana. Life aboard the ship is a welcome respite from the gloom of Berlin—filled with masquerade balls, dancing, and exquisite meals every night.

As the passengers gain renewed hope for a bright future ahead, love between Hannah and Leo blossoms. But soon reports from the outside world began to filter in, and dark news overshadows the celebratory atmosphere on the ship; the governments of Cuba, the United States, and Canada are denying the passengers of the St. Louis admittance to their countries, forcing them to return to Europe as it descends into the Second World War. The ship that had seemed their salvation seems likely to become their death sentence.

After four days anchored at bay, only a handful of passengers are allowed to disembark onto Cuban soil, and Hannah and Leo must face the grim reality that they could be torn apart. Their future is unknown, and their only choice will have an impact in generations to come.

Decades later in New York City on her eleventh birthday, Anna Rosen receives a mysterious envelope from Hannah, a great-aunt she has never met but who raised her deceased father. In an attempt to piece together her father’s mysterious past, Anna and her mother travel to Havana to meet Hannah, who is turning eighty-seven years old. Hannah reveals old family ties, recounts her journey aboard the Saint Louis and, for the first time, reveals what happened to her father and Leo. Bringing together the pain of the past with the mysteries of the present, Hannah gives young Anna a sense of their shared histories, forever intertwining their lives, honoring those they loved and cruelly lost.

Our Own Country by Jodi Daynard

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Our Own Country by Jodi Daynard was an interesting book.  This was a very typical historical fiction book, and those tend to get old to me pretty quickly.  This was a good book, but it is one that by the time I was done with the book I was just over it.  This book took place during the Revolutionary War, and I think that is part of the reason that I got bored with this book.  I am finding that I have a hard time getting into books that take place before WWII because they are just too old for me.  This book was well written, and I really did enjoy the characters in this book.  She also did a great job of making you feel as if you are there with the characters as well.  If you love historical fiction books, I am sure you will enjoy this book it just wasn’t right for me.

About The Book

A love affair tests a new nation’s revolutionary ideals.

In 1770s Boston, a prosperous merchant’s daughter, Eliza Boylston, lives a charmed life—until war breaches the walls of the family estate and forces her to live in a world in which wealth can no longer protect her.

As the chaos of the Revolutionary War tears her family apart, Eliza finds herself drawn to her uncle’s slave, John Watkins. Their love leads to her exile in Braintree, Massachusetts, home to radicals John and Abigail Adams and Eliza’s midwife sister-in-law, Lizzie Boylston. But even as the uprising takes hold, Eliza can’t help but wonder whether a rebel victory will grant her and John the most basic of American rights.
