THREE HOT READS

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Life Lessons -

◆ It’s 14th-cen­tury Eng­land, and THE SHADOW QUEEN in­tro­duces us to Joan, Fair Maid of Kent: real-life grand­daugh­ter of Ed­ward I and mother of Richard II. But Joan is not quite what her pow­er­ful family imag­ines in this cracking his­tor­i­cal novel from ANNE O’BRIEN.

◆ In THE STARS ARE FIRE, Grace Hol­land is preg­nant with her third child when she loses her home and hus­band in a wild­fire. Strug­gling in the af­ter­math, she is sur­prised to dis­cover a sense of free­dom and hope – un­til a stranger ap­pears at her door. This is del­i­cate, poignant sto­ry­telling from ANITA SHREVE.

◆ Ac­claimed au­thor Michael and his wife Lizzie are hol­i­day­ing in Italy with an­other family. Mar­riages col­lide as se­crets and lies bubble to the sur­face. SIRACUSA is a bril­liantly ob­served novel by DELIA EPHRON, sis­ter of Nora and scriptwriter of You’ve Got Mail.
