The only thing I really knew about the Hindenburg before reading this book is that it blew up. Lawhon does an excellent job weaving fact and fiction together to create a possible theory for what happened on that ill-fated flight. I really came to love the characters, all real people on the actual flight. I must remember that Starbucks is not the place to finish a book that will make you cry, which is what happened.

MaryAnn1 I really loved this one, too! 💕 3y
lynneamch So good. She came to visit our Knoxville indie bookstore. She was so charming and I was awed by her almost obsessive research into getting the details just right. 3y
Bookzombie @lynneamch That's great that you got to see her! 😀 3y

Holy crap, guys. This book 😍. Set in WWII, occupied France. The story of two women, one a mother trying to protect her daughter and survive the war, the other a spy and political activist. A little action, a little romance, and a lot of awesomeness. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #litsyreadingchallenge #basedonahistoricalevent

#litsyreadingchallenge2017 has begun! For those of you who are bingo players, I plan to do a cover all. #barkskins could have easily fallen into #morethan400pages #basedonahistoricalevent and #takesplaceover150yearsago but I chose to fill the most difficult to find category of #multipleperspectives. On to the next!
