This book is based on a true story. Mila Pavlichenko was a librarian and a history student. During World War II she became the deadliest female sniper during Hitler's invasion of Ukraine and killed over 300 Nazis and was known as Lady Death. She becomes a national heroine and is sent to Washington D.C. on a goodwill tour to meet First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
Book is about 3 women (Osla, Mab & Beth) who were codebreakers at Bletchley Park during WWII. Kate Quinn did an excellent job of detailed research. Page-turner with great pacing, interesting dialogue & lots of twists & turns. I have read Quinn's Alice Network but need to read The Huntress. Love how Quinn wove the story of Osla who was Prince Phillip's real-life girlfriend into the book. If you love Historical Fiction, you will love this one!
Finished Auntie Poldi last night before crashing - it was cute, but like, my mom is almost 60 and happens to be super-cool...and none of the 60 year-olds I know are nearly as old-seeming as Auntie Poldi seems. She reads WAY older, so that bugged me, acting like 60 is sooooo old and eccentric - but now on to “The Huntress!” I‘ve heard great things about Kate Quinn, so! #thehuntress #katequinn
So I literally just put this on hold and didn‘t expect this for 6 months! What a great book surprise!!! Definitely an excitement that only fellow Littens understand!!! Love my #LitsyCommunity !!!

Went to Barnes and Noble to find a desk calendar for work since I have to work Tuesday and this happened. Three are for two different reading challenges and I‘ve been wanting to read Leah‘s book and couldn‘t beat the price. I don‘t typically like to buy books at a big chain store, but they were there. Next year, I plan on shopping only at a few local bookstores. #tanafrench #katequinn #leahremini
