A couple of excellent novels deliver pictures of totally different bits of history, though both highlight fallout from times of war.

Social rules have come a long way since daughters and wives were considered property and had little say in marriage or other aspects of their lives. Here are a couple of novels that take the reader back to a time when a young lady had to be very clever or have a forward-thinking man in her life to achieve her dreams.
Many stories have been written and told concerning the heroes of World War II and the aftermath of that devastating clash. "The Slow March of Light" by Heather B. Moore and "They Called Him Marvin" by Roger Stark are two compelling examples of such stories and the subject of my review today.
Two books that are a bit unusual are today’s choices for review. Time’s Dagger by Margot Hovley begins as a contemporary story, then makes a gigantic leap backward to the fourteenth century. The other book I chose to review is Brides and Brothers, a modern take-off of an old favorite, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
Two authors, favorites of many, present new stories set more than a century apart and geographically on two different continents. Sarah M. Eden takes us to the slums of 1865 London with The Merchant and the Rogue, while Traci Hunter Abramson presents a modern-day Saints Squad novel, Redemption set in the USA.
August brings three books highlighting very different times and places. Journey to contemporary Canada, turn-of-the-century Austria, and 1800s Scotland. All three are outstanding books.
Two very different books have been released this month. Fly Home to Me by Chalon Linton is a contemporary with a military angle while Pursuing Miss Hall by Karen Thornell is a classical Regency. Both are well-written and great for taking a break from summer heat, relaxing on the beach, or wiling away a lazy evening.
