Christmas Bells: A Novel | Jennifer Chiaverini

#Historicalfiction
A dual timeline my favorite being the historical one, of course. 1863 in the midst of the Civil War Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is grieving the loss of his beloved wife. This is the story behind his famous poem, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.

Andrew65 This sounds brilliant, stacked. 1mo

LeeRHarry I can‘t wait to read The Witch and the Tsar 😊 1mo
AllDebooks @LeeRHarry I think you'll really enjoy it. It's an amazing story 😊 1mo
Aimeesue The Slater is one of my favorites. This year I listened to the first season of his podcast which is excerpts from the book. I think they recorded some of it at his home because the opening has a crow cawing in it 🥰 1mo

The Moonlight School shines a light on adult literacy. It's based on the true story of Cora Wilson Stewart set in the hills of Kentucky in 1911. Highly recommended.

Andrew65 Looks very interesting. Stacked. 1mo

Somehow it is fitting that both of these books were my November favorites.

CBee @TheBookHippie @Deblovestoread I read a book in 2022 that sounds similar to Francesco and it blew me away: 1mo

#MiddleGrade
A beautifully written story about and 11 year old girl in Victorian London. She is orphaned at a young age and is indentured as a chimney sweep. She is all alone in the world except for her Golem, Charlie. This is a brilliant mix of fantasy, historical fiction and Jewish folklore.

Andrew65 Sounds excellent. 1mo
Karisimo I love this one too 😊 1mo

Spear is my choice for October, an Arthurian fantasy told slant. So looking forward to Menewood, the successor to Hild, being published this year.

Mexican Gothic crossed over into November for #AuthorAMonth hosted by @Soubhiville
Moreno-Garcia is a prolific young author and I will definitely be reading more of her books this year.

If you like The Only Plane in the Sky read this one next. I try to read at least one book based on 9/11 every year. This one gutted me.😞

Andrew65 I can imagine this is very difficult reading. 1mo
