This exceptional book is available today! Not to be missed! #TheOrphanCollector #EllenMarieWiseman #KensingtonBooks #SpanishFlu1918

Ellen Wiseman’s exceptional writing transports you directly to the streets of Philadelphia during the Spanish flu of 1918. Pia, a young German immigrant of 13, experiences unimaginable hardships as the virus sweeps through the slums of the city. Her determination leads her to find answers to the fate of her twin brothers and her dad after their mom succumbs to the flu. After falling ill herself, she survives the horrid conditions of an orphanage before finding true family life once again. This author squeezes your heart through a full range of emotions. Well done!!!

Just published this week. A must read for all historical fiction readers!

Kristen Harmel has written an unforgettable book about World War II that will live forever in my heart. There are two timelines, Eva as a young woman in the 1940’s and Eva in 2005. It’s a story of immense courage and love during one of the most horrific times in the history of the world. The story of the Resistance in France is prominent when detailing the measures taken to forge false documents so many children could escape to neutral Switzerland. While identities were changed, the original names were encrypted in a book with a secret code. This is another great historical fiction written by a very talented author!

“Whimsical, thought-provoking, deftly crafted, "This Is Me, Not Robert Creeley, Speaking " clearly showcases Paul Bussan's genuine flair for deftly crafted, succinct, and memorable free verse. This brief compendium of his work is very highly recommended for personal reading lists.” -The Midwest Book Review, June, 2017
