Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 8/8/22

It had been incredibly rainy and windy this week. It’s amazing to see the sun out as I write this!

Daughter of the Home Front by Jennie Jones (available October) came from Harlequin. Set in Townsville in 1942, Emma starts her adult life assisting the war effort until her American GI boyfriend disappears. Sent to a home for unwed mothers to me, Emma is determined to keep her child and help others in the same situation.

The Lessons by John Purcell is set across 1961 and 1983. Daisy and Harry fall in love, but everything is stacked up against them when she is sent to live with her Aunt Jane. Later, Jane becomes a famous novelist but seems to have something to hide when asked about her traumatic coming of age novel…

Fool Me Twice: Fighting the Assault on Science in America by Shawn Lawrence Otto is about how antiscience viewpoints have become mainstream and how it has affected politics and everyday life.

Impossible by Sarah Lotz is about Nick and Bee meeting accidentally over a wrongly sent email. Yes, even Nick and Bee thought they knew how this would go…but it’s a story with a lot of twists.
