Created by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday, now has its own blog. This month Passages to the Past is hosting. Stop on over and see what everyone else got this week (and don't forget to wallow in some of the glorious historical fiction featured there.)
This week I received three books all focusing on various aspects of World War II.
22 Britannia Road arrived from the publisher Viking Penguin....I'll be posting a giveaway on this sometime in the next 10 days so come back often. This one is Polish WW II survivors living in London--looks like it's going to be real fun.
The Soldier's Wife is another publisher (Hyperion) ARC. Scheduled for publication in June, it's set in Guernsey, features a romance between an islander and a German POW, and the strained relationship between a mother and her teen aged daughter. It is another setting and time frame I enjoy reading about, so this one is definitely on the reading pile.
And from the publisher (McBooks Press) via the Early Reviewer Program on LibraryThing.com, I received Wings, A novel of World War II Flygirls. I'm a navy veteran myself (and although I'm an old lady, I DID NOT serve in WWII) so this once is one I was really excited to get my hands on. It's fiction, but is touted to fill in the blanks about these often forgotten members of our armed services.
