Summer Reading Picks

Ah, summertime when the living is easy. School is out. Routine is out the window. And I can pull up a lawn chair, prop up my feet, sip sweet tea and escape to faraway worlds.

So many books . . . so little time. . .

Historically Speaking—Historical Fiction Picks

Although I have a Master’s in history, I do not read as much historical fiction as I did in my younger years.

But here are a few must-read historical novels I will add to my summer reading list—

Hearts That Survive by Yvonne Lehmann—about the Titanic
Promise Me This by Cathy Gohlke—about the Titanic
Are you sensing a theme here?
Roanoke by Angela Hunt—we North Carolinians like to keep up with our favorite history mystery


• anything by Julie Lessman—one of my favorite romance writers who also draws me into her WWI/1920s era Boston world

What about you? Any great historical fiction you’d suggest?

Later this week, my picks for women’s fiction.
