Good Monday Moring, I hope that you all had a great weekend. I had a great one, I even got time to do a little reading and crafting.
So, I follow this blog called mailboxmonday, I enjoy reading what they are posting and what books they get in their mailboxes. I really don’t get books in the mail, I usually order all of my as e-Books. I guess that would count since its an email box. LOL I have included their blog, so that if you wanted you could check them out.
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.
So on their blog they had a section of books that caught their eye. After reading about what books caught their eye. I now have a longer list on my TBR List. See below what books I have added to my TBR list. I am going to check my local library in hopes that I can find them.
Books on their Book Blog that Caught My Eye
The Woman at the Front by Lecia Cornwall
A daring young woman risks everything to pursue a career as a doctor on the front lines in France during World War I, and learns the true meaning of hope, love, and resilience in the darkest of times.
When Eleanor Atherton graduates from medical school near the top of her class in 1917, she dreams of going overseas to help the wounded, but her ambition is thwarted at every turn. Eleanor’s parents insist she must give up medicine, marry a respectable man, and assume her proper place. While women might serve as ambulance drivers or nurses at the front, they cannot be physicians—that work is too dangerous and frightening.
Nevertheless, Eleanor is determined to make more of a contribution than sitting at home knitting for the troops. When an unexpected twist of fate sends Eleanor to the battlefields of France as the private doctor of a British peer, she seizes the opportunity for what it is—the chance to finally prove herself. But there’s a war on, and a casualty clearing station close to the front lines is an unforgiving place. Facing skeptical commanders who question her skills, scores of wounded men needing care, underhanded efforts by her family to bring her back home, and a blossoming romance, Eleanor must decide if she’s brave enough to break the rules, face her darkest fears, and take the chance to win the career—and the love—she’s always wanted.
Smokehouse by Melissa Manning
Set in southern Tasmania, the linked stories in Smokehouse bring into focus a small community and capture those moments when life turns and one person becomes another. As we get to know these characters – a mother whose fresh start leads to a fractured future, a stonemason seeking connection, a woman grieving her adopted mother, a couple torn apart by their daughter’s drug addiction – we learn how their lives intersect, in various ways, across time and place.
So have you read any of these, if, yes what where you thoughts.
