Good day, dear readers! What a start to May we have had! The weather is getting nicer, although we are having a few thunderstorms along the way. I hope that you have been enjoying the books of the year so far, as we have quite a bit more lined up! I love being able to share great books with you!
This month, we are reading “Red Sky Over Hawaii” by Sara Ackerman. I have heard a lot of great things about this book, and am enjoying the story so far! This historical fiction is taking us back to the beginnings of the United States involvement in World War II, and adds a bit more too! Don’t miss this great read! There are links for where to find the books in our newsletter that is sent out monthly. Be sure to check it out.
