Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 15/3/21

It was a really busy one last week – I’ve spent most of the week working on the computer (including the weekend). Luckily, I have a few new books to look forward to:

Sunflower Sisters by Martha Hall Kelly (available 30th March) arrived thanks to Penguin, for a blog tour next month. It’s set during the American Civil War, with Georgeanne and Eliza nursing men at the front. Jemma and Patience are enslaved on plantations but have the chance to escape. Anne-May is running a plantation while her husband is at war and sees an opportunity to be involved in a spying network.

Good Economics for Hard Times by Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflois about how economics has been done badly in a globalised world. They suggest how economics can assist with solving today’s social and political problems.

Pale Rider by Laura Spinney is about the Spanish flu of 1918-1920 and how it disrupted and permanently altered world politics, family, race, religion, medicine and the arts.

  1. ‘Pale Rider’ must be a very timely read, but I will definitely keep a look out for it. Best we can do is learn from history! I hope you continue enjoying ‘An Offer From a Gentleman’. I hope you have a lovely week and do drop by my Mailbox Monday if you have the time! – Juli @ A Universe in Words

  2. Nice looking assortment of books. I like the way you choose both fiction and nonfiction. I’m so devoted to fiction that nonfiction books are seldom chosen for my reading. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
