Two new historical pre-release copies have made their way to my bookshelf. And yes, I am reading both books. It’s not unusual for me to have two or three books going at the same time.
I’ve mentioned before that I love novels that are rich in correct historical detail. (Notice the emphasis on the word “correct”.)
This book, “The Sea Before Us” by Sarah Sundin, is set mainly in London in the days immediately before Normandy. The story is quite compelling. I’m already involved in the characters’ involvement in planning the advance of the Allied forces. There’s a sweet little romance going on that’s having a rough beginning.
This book is published by Revel and it’s 386 pages. It’s currently on sale for Kindle for $10.99. I’m reading an eBook copy that I received from Net Galley. The publication date is February 6.
This book, “Across the Blue” by Carrie Turansky, is set in Edwardian England. The setting and descriptions of the lavish house and grounds has me picturing the Biltmore Estate and the beautiful display of dresses of that time period.
This plot revolves around the early days of aviation and the race to see which pilot would be the first to fly across the English Channel. Our heroine is wanting to become a journalist for a newspaper, a role that not many women filled in those days. There’s quite a bit of action involving the flying of those early airplanes and I’m also enjoying these historical details.
I received a copy of this book from Multnomah for review. It’s 352 pages and is currently on sale for $9.99 on Kindle. The publication date is February 20.
Don’t you just love the covers on both these books? Reviews coming soon.
