The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman has a very interesting premise, a couple who run a lighthouse find a baby and raise it as their own. I was intrigued and looked forward to reading of the consequences this act would invoke. I enjoyed the sections of the book that described Tom and Isabel’s courtship. […]

Mischling by Affinity Konar

Mischling by Affinity Konar

Posted March 28, 2017 by Whitney in Review / 2 Comments

Mischling by Affinity Konar is a historical fiction novel on a subject that is rarely touched in this genre — Josef Mengele. The Holocaust is filled with many, unimaginable horrors but “the zoo” in Auschwitz is repulsive. The “experiments” preformed were enough to make one ill. However, the main story is not of blindness but […]

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff could easily have been yet another novel about surviving WWII. At first, I was nervous as it seemed to mirror Water for Elephants and while that in itself is a good story I found the ending to be disappointing. Therefore, I hoped for a different result. Fortunately, I was […]

I am a lover of true crime and have reread the disturbing true crime novel Helter Skelter several times. Therefore, when The Girls by Emma Cline was released I knew I had to read it. I will admit, that I was a bit skeptical at first as both of Cline’s parents are in the publishing […]

The first thing that came to mind upon starting Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon was the 1997 film Titanic.  Both are media based on an iconic means of travel that ended in disaster and chronicle the last days of the passenger’s lives. Fortunately, Flight of Dreams delivers an amazing look at the occupants onboard […]
