Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted as ever by the supercool folks at The Broke and the Bookish. I’m excited about this week’s topic – not only to introduce y’all to some of my very fave bookish people to follow on the interwebs, but also to see who everyone else recommends too!
World War 1 Flying Aces and German Zeppelins zoom across the pages of A Refuge at Highland Hall, the challenges of war meticulously researched and creatively conveyed. The beginnings of new love spark for two couples in this story, tempered by the separation of war – be it by deployment or internment – but allowing the power of the written word to fan the heart’s spark into a steady and enduring flame is truly the stuff of great romance! My favorite of the Edwardian Brides series, A Refuge at Highland Hall is best appreciated if read in context (the characters!!) though it can also be read as a standalone.
