It has been quite an eventful summer! Although this post is two months and two days late, I have managed to keep up on personal and professional reading. Here are the books I read in July and August.
Charles Todd’s Ian Rutledge Series 6-13: Five Stars
I continue to enjoy listening to this series through Audible. There was a change in reader, which threw me a little, but I adjusted. I think my favorite of the books is The Red Door, but it is helpful to listen to the books in order since there is a continual subplot.
The Coldest Case by Martin Walker: Five Stars
This is the next book in the Bruno, Chief of Police series, and it does not disappoint. I recommend reading or listening from the beginning because of the subplot development. I’m looking forward to the next installment!
When We Were Young and Brave by Hazel Gaynor: Five Stars
This is a phenomenal book. It places a new perspective on WWII through the experience of teachers and students who faced occupation of their mission school in China and endured an Japanese internment camp. Although fictional, its history is well-researched. This is an unforgettable story with enduring characters.
This book has been sitting on my shelf for several years, and I am glad I finally got around to reading it. It is a fascinating adventure when considering the geography, modes of travel, interactions with various cultures while still remaining focused on the goal. Yet, there are surprises especially in character development, which I think is why this book continues to be a classic.
Hid from Our Eyes by Julia Spencer-Fleming: Five Stars
This is the next book in the Fergusson-Alstyne series by Fleming. It was worth and wait, and I am looking forward to the follow-up.
