- Operation Mincemeat: This was a great historical account of the behind-the-scenes espionage and spy activity that led to the victorious D-Day on the beaches of Sicily. Well written and very detailed (a little much unnecessary detail for me), but an excellent read overall.
- Boston Jane: An Adventure: & Boston Jane: The Claim: I loved these books and series (though I was disappointed to not be able to read the second book as my library doesn’t have it). It reminded me so much of Gloria Whelan’s Island trilogy, which are some of my very favorite historical fiction books. This series is set in the mid 1800’s in first Philadephia and then Oregon and chronicles the adventures of tomboyish-turned-lady Jane Peck.
