Lilac Girls Book Review

I’ve been reading historical fiction for a long time, and I’ve noticed that the genre adores stories about World War II. I can understand that. Authors can tackle one or multiple aspects of the war like women’s efforts, the Western Front, the Pacific Front, etc, and they can show them from any perspective. It’s aContinue reading “Lilac Girls Book Review”

My Name is Not Easy Book Review

As I have mentioned in prior reviews, fiction allows writers to create stories that are based around certain facts, and they permit readers to take a look at how the people involved feel.

The Paris Architect Book Review

Every now and then, there is a book whose premise is so interesting that I feel the need to read it right there. Sometimes, it is worth it, and other times, it is not. The former was the case for The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure.  The Paris Architect involves Lucien Bernard, a gentile architectContinue reading “The Paris Architect Book Review”

Book Reviews From the Vault: The Atomic City Girls

I had a lot of mixed reactions while reading The Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard. Find out what elements made me feel this way. Once in a blue moon, there comes a book that is misleading.

The Island of Sea Women Book Review

In my review of The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See, I mentioned the concept of how fiction can help connect readers to the facts. For a brief bit, I also discussed that if the author focuses on the facts too much, then it would start sounding like a Master’s Thesis. Not onlyContinue reading “The Island of Sea Women Book Review”
