Lisa’s August Recommendations

What a treat! Lisa recommends a few books for us this month. Lisa’s reading tastes usually lean towards historical books and books set in other countries. Stop by RFPL and pick up a few books to read outside in this nice weather!

 

(available in print and ebook at RFPL)

 Lisa says: “thumbs up”

 

From the catalog: “Unwillingly rendered an object of obsession by the Kommandant occupying her small French town in World War I, Sophie risks everything to reunite with her husband a century before a widowed Liv tests her resolve to claim ownership of Sophie’s portrait.”

The Visitors by Sally Beauman

(available in print from RFPL)

Lisa says: “thumbs WAY up”

 

From the catalog: “Sent abroad to Egypt in 1922 to recover from the typhoid that has killed her mother, eleven-year-old Lucy becomes swept up in the feverish excitement surrounding the search for Tutankhamun’s tomb. Through her friendship with Frances, the daughter of an American archaeologist, Lucy witnesses first-hand the intrigue, politics, and passions surrounding this quest. Raised in a world in which adults are often cold and unpredictable, Lucy forms an immediate bond with Frances.”

 

The Vacationers by Emma Straub

(available in print, ebook, and audio CD from RFPL)

Lisa says: “thumbs up- mostly for the location and family interaction – not the specifics of the storyline”
