My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I could not put this book down! It grabbed me from the very beginning and I couldn’t do anything but think about it when I wasn’t able to read. I love books set in historical settings, especially WWII, and this held me throughout the entire story. Even when I thought the story was done, it wasn’t even close. Lots of twists, turns, mystery, laughing, crying and always wondering what was next. I especially enjoyed the viewpoint of German citizens during the war and it’s immediate aftermath. The descriptions pull me into Germany and light up my desire to get back into learning the language and visiting at some point. I can’t recommend this book enough.

Incredible!

This book has been one of the most amazing books I’ve read in a long time. The author paints this detailed picture of the hardships on WII. The characters come out of the book and walk beside you. You feel like you know that they are your family also. You can tell the author did extensive research that is represented throughout the book! Get this book! You won’t regret it!!

When you start delving into your history are you sure you want to uncover the past.

Anna is trying to uncover a family secret but she did not expect it to go down the rabbit hole and uncover the shocking truth.

I have to first say this is not normally a genre I would ever contempt reading but I am missing a whole genre of interesting and brilliant stories. Maria’s story has you on journey back through WWII to uncover a gripping secret which has been in her family and she wants to finally put it to rest but can she. You find yourself through the looking glass and walking and investigating right with her.

The book and writing draws you into a world of horror and destruction but it is such a compiling read you forge ahead to discover the truth with each page turned and chapter read. This story has wet my appetite to read more from this genre and be a book Indian Jones.

Thank you Maria for your stories and passion which is shown in this book.

What a small world we truly inhabit. Anna soon learns this as she uncovers family secrets and realizes we are all tangled in The Web of Humanity. Wow, what a great read this book was. Web of Humanity had it all: adventure, romance, espionage, and the power to make me understand others’ perspectives and the choices that are made in desperate times. Never judge a book by the cover, but more importantly, never judge a person by their appearance, beliefs, or background. I think this book appropriate for this time right now as we struggle with racism, corrupt government, unrest, corona pandemic, and war in our world. This book gives us hope and the determination to survive. Family is our greatest gift and should be cherished and loved for all eternity. Read The Web of Humanity by Maria Turchin. Her writing style is easy to read but keeps you hooked from beginning to end. Just when things seem to be worked out, nope, a new twist pops up. This story is a mix of fiction and history which brings you deep into the character, Anna’s, life and her past. Pictures are inserted throughout to keep the reader engaged and wanting more. Read this book. You will NOT be disappointed.

Try Right (Aloha Series book 3) by Jill Brashear – Review by Kayla Octaviano

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adorable! I didn’t read the previous books in the series, but it wasn’t really necessary. I could follow the story in this book alone. Such a cute romance novel. The writing was awesome and I really lost myself in this book. Read this book if you love a good romance story.

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight Book 1) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Carly Vogler

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight, #1)The Lightning Horse by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lightning Horse by N.L Holmes is the first book in the Empire at Twilight Series. I am not one who normally reads historical fiction, but I will forever read anything N. L Holmes writes! The research it must have taken to have a book be so realistic and reflective of a time period is unimaginable.

When a chariot accident kills a young Hittite’s father, he won’t rest until the people responsible are found. Unfortunately, it doesn’t go as planned and we start down a rabbit hole of twists and turns, uncovering more as we go along.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Web of Humanity is a well-researched novel looking at the generational impact of war. Through the eyes of a granddaughter and inspired by real events the author, Maria Turchin, has weaved an exceptional story bringing to life the human side of war. I felt at times like some of the writing was still in its infancy but overall, it was easy to read and kept me up all night to finish it. It is a book that will stay with me and the characters remain. I really enjoyed the links throughout the eBook giving the reader the opportunity to see the history and photographs that inspired the writer. It is a novel I recommend and would interest readers of The Nightingale and The French Photographer.

I have always enjoyed talking with souls wherever they are on their ethereal journeys. Many have wonderful stories to tell. I love listening to them and writing those stories. This is another such work. I’d like to thank all the souls involved who have shared their past and present lives to fulfill my dream in this book.

The Earl and the Peahen (The Scarlet Salon Book 5) by Jean Wilde – Review by Raylene Green

The Earl and the PeahenThe Earl and the Peahen by Jean Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although this is the fifth in the series, it can be read as a standalone. It is of course, a historical romance. Lots of drama and witty banner. I don’t normally enjoy historical romance but this one was a good read. Jane and Alexander are very opposite, but when misfortune lands on both of their laps, not only will they have to work together, but they forge a friendship as well…or is it more?! Read to find out!!!!
