What period in history do you love best?
In case you’re up for adding more books to your shelves, here are brief summaries of the other 3 books besides THE FALCON, THE WOLF AND THE HUMMINGBIRD :
CITIES OF FICTION by Kathleen B. Jones: In the twenty-first century, we meet Verity Frazier, a disillusioned history professor who sets out to prove that the artist responsible for the illuminated artwork in Christine de Pizan’s medieval manuscripts was a remarkable woman named Anastasia. As Anastasia’s story unfolds against the exquisitely-rendered medieval backdrop of moral disaster, political intrigue, and extraordinary creativity, Verity finds her career on the brink of collapse by her efforts to uncover evidence of the lost artist’s existence.
CHASING ELEANOR by Kerry Chaput (YA): “Newly orphaned Magnolia Parker must protect her sick little brothers, but when the authorities send the boys to an unknown orphan asylum, Magnolia calls on her unwavering grit to bring them home. She's lost everything but still has a secret weapon-a promise from Eleanor Roosevelt, the most famous woman in America.”
BESSIE by Linda Kass: “Just days after the close of World War II, Bess Myerson, the daughter of poor Russian Jewish immigrants living in the Bronx, is competing in the Miss America pageant. At stake: a $5,000 scholarship. The tension and excitement in Atlantic City’s Warner Theatre are palpable, especially for traumatized Jews rooting for one of their own.”
