But before Jake can find a way to cure the masses, he himself is injected with the virus, forcing him to dig deep to track down the leader of the terrorist group.

COMING THIS SPRING

What won’t a woman do to protect

Her child… her love… her home?

************
PRAISE FOR COURAGE, MY LOVE:

A winning wartime tale… appealing heroines…

Kristin Beck's debut is a fresh, compelling read."—Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Huntress

 

Courage, My Love is historical fiction at its finest.

With evocative and compulsively readable prose,

Beck weaves a gripping tale of love, loss, patriotism, and courage.”Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Train to Key West

 

"A beautiful story of female friendship...

It's a fascinating, nuanced and impeccably researched tale."Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Orphan
************ 

ABOUT COURAGE, MY LOVE:

Inviting readers into a facet of WWII history rarely depicted in fiction, COURAGE, MY LOVE is a visceral, moving story of those who faced and fought the German occupation in war-torn Italy.

With the men in their lives captured, executed, or missing, the women of 1943 Italy stepped up to the front lines of the resistance in Rome. COURAGE, MY LOVE follows two such women, Francesca and Lucia, who are led to join the fight for different reasons and yet are united in the strength they share.

The extensive research done by debut author Kristin Beck shines through in the rich detail found on every page, making the threat of Nazi occupation all the more chilling, and the sorrows these women faced all too real.

The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth

Which sister is the good sister? 

You will ask yourself this question as you read. 

They both seem to be good and good for each other especially after surviving their horrible childhood with a sociopath for a mother.  
 
But is one better than the other?  Is one actually more conniving than the other?  You will find out.

We follow Rose and Fern's life and see that Rose protects Fern at all costs and that Fern listens to everything Rose tells her to do.

The alternating chapters of each sister's life as adults was described in detail and gave us insight into how they really lived and the secrets they kept from each other and one they kept for years.

This book was more character driven than plot driven for me, but that is great because the characters are likable.

You will like both Rose and Fern and especially Wally. Wally is a man Fern met when he came to the library. They have much in common and are a good pair and good for each other.

There is something happening in both stories, but something you can’t pin down or can't figure out.

The beginning has you wondering where it is going, but…oh does it get better and better.

Sister and family drama can be good or bad. 

THE GOOD SISTER will let you know which way it goes for Rose and Fern. 4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
