There are some amazing reads in our near future…and ironically they’re set in the past.
Basically, if historical fiction is your jam, you definitely don’t want to miss out on these top three picks!
1. Lovely War
A sweeping, multi-layered romance with a divine twist, by the Printz Honor-winning author of The Passion of Dolssa, set in the perilous days of World Wars I and II.
This one is going to have you guessing and guessing and then pondering about fate, love, war and time FOR HOURS afterwards. Weirdly like a cross between Atonement and the Wonder Woman movie …yes, really…Julie Berry’s here to shake your world.
From the author of Blind, a heart-wrenching coming-of-age story set during World War II in Shanghai, one of the only places Jews without visas could find refuge.
Warsaw, Poland. The year is 1940 and Lillia is fifteen when her mother, Alenka, disappears and her father flees with Lillia and her younger sister, Naomi, to Shanghai, one of the few places that will accept Jews without visas. There they struggle to make a life; they have no money, there is little work, no decent place to live, a culture that doesn’t understand them. And always the worry about Alenka. How will she find them? Is she still alive?
3. All for One
The curtain closes on the epic romance of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler in this dazzling finale to the trilogy that began with the New York Timesbestselling Alex & Eliza: A Love Story.
Basically, we aren’t ready.
