Bloomsbury Girls is the perfect book for not only booksellers (though it will be greatly loved by those of us who peddle books for a living) but for anyone who longs to see women doing great things in a time when the odds were stacked even higher against them. It's a must read for historical fiction lovers, and for those who love my new favorite subgenre, feminist mid-century historical fiction with a hint of coziness, as well! - SARAH
Phuc Tran is an AMAZING writer and while I selfishly wanted to read his memoir because we grew up in the same small town and my mother was a teacher at Carlisle High School when he was a student, I didn't expect to be so blown away by his story. Sigh, Gone paints a portrait of my hometown that I always knew existed in the back of my mind, but never really saw or acknowledged. Touching and eye opening, I cannot wait to share Phuc's memoir with customers at the store! - SARAH
I absolutely loved The Jane Austen Society. As I read, I felt I was walking around Chawton, immersing myself in the world of her colorful inhabitants, surprised by how they handled certain situations, while simultaneously feeling like they were behaving exactly as they should. The plot is intricate and beautifully woven, written by the hand of the master storyteller, it's a great book for Austen lovers and historical fiction lovers alike! - SARAH
