Weekend Reads: Remember No More by Jan Newton

  Review I confess, I was initially drawn to Remember No More in part because of the synopsis, and in part due to the fact that I spent nearly four years in this part of Wales.  Jan Newton does not disappoint with her writing nor with the stunningly depicted setting. This the perfect book to get lost in [Read On]

Book Review: A Dog’s Way Home

Review If you’ve read author W.

Book Review: The Orphan’s Tale

I’m always intrigued by fact-based historical fiction and The Orphan’s Tale was inspired by two stories from WWII: that of a German circus who hid Jews among their performers, and one of the Nazis filling rail cars with Jewish babies from their families. One tale heroic, one horrific, both inspired an amazing book. If you haven’t read Pam Jenoff [Read On]
