Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy by Karen Abbott

Clear rating
Although the first several chapters were sort of a jumble--giving snapshot images of the four main characters--the story was quickly woven together after the first 50 or so pages and became much more enjoyable. I just had a lot of trouble trying to k...more

Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands

The revelation of the meaning of the title hit me like a ton of bricks. That said, three and a half stars for this book--it's a good read, interesting story, and quite disturbing in parts. About a teenager whose parents are reportedly at fault--and b...more
All Our Worldly Goods by Irène Némirovsky
Rate this book
Clear rating
A wonderful precursor to Suite Francaise; some of the scenes are very similar, but inserted with different characters. I will say that this book did not feel as rich as SF, but I loved it still. It's a simple story of a family that lives from the Gre...more

Suspenseful all the way through, but after reading other suspense novels, I kept waiting for the stupid to fall. The ending in The Winter People was pretty strong, and although I thought I had figured it out, I didn't, and I LOVED that. There's a sup...more
A Train in Winter by Caroline Moorehead
"I don’t think it’s possible to overstate the importance of this book. I’m not Jewish, I’m not French, but I am a lesbian and it is possible for me to imagine the evil that can be perpetrated against people simply for who they are. This was a story..." Read more of this review »

One of the most phenomenal books I've ever read. It is essential, profound, moving, shocking, horrifying and astounding. I am embarrassed that I knew nothing of these women before I read the book; World War Two and the Holocaust are full of millions...more

Solid story about life in London during WWII; made me want to read more about it. Interesting structure, working back in time to unravel the mysteries put forward in the front part of the book. I feel that I may have missed some things, though, and w...more

Compelling, engrossing, fast paced but doesn't leave out the details. A solid, comprehensive look at the Romanov sisters from birth until death--and it will probably all surprise you, including what could have been done to change their awful fates. T...more
