I like reading historical fiction but usually don't read stories about war, especially WWII. This book about three women from different backgrounds with children living in a castle in Germany during and after WWII grabbed my attention, however, and I'm glad it did. this is an amazing story that captures the horror of Hitler's war from the perspectives of not only ordinary people but also of the women and children who lived it.

CTOBER 2020

I love this author and I loved this book! It's set in the late 70's in a coastal town in Maine, and is about two boys with very different personalities who form awn unlikely friendship. The two learn about love and sorrow and the effect family and other relationships have on shaping our understanding of the world. It's been a while since I've read a book that could drum up enough emotion in me to bring tears to my eyes and make me chuckle out loud.

DECEMBER 2020

This story is about the ill fated Donner Party expedition but with a supernatural twist. I could not put this book down. Katsu weaves the story so that it leaves you questioning whether the party is being stalked by an evil force, or is the evil force really within the group itself.
