I find the stories of women in World War 2 compelling.  The struggle for social equality combined with the desire to support one’s country, and perhaps the whirlwind romances have made this my go-to in the historical genre for the past year.  The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane is a stand alone novel primarily […]
