JoJo strikes again!
JoJo Moyes has a unfailing gift of creating characters who get under your skin, staying with you long after you finished reading her books. Sophie is a deliciously warm, kindhearted person who goes to all ends to help her family and fellow townsmen during the German occupation of France during World War I. The reader will have a special place in their heart for Edith, a "fallen woman" who is more three-dimensional than most of the people in town. Modern-day Liv, whose own circumstances are rather individual as she is a young widow, is at a crossroads in her life. She nevertheless stands by her principles as did Sophie and Edith decades earlier. And who would think that a child to whom Sophie gave a home holds the cards in the end? Well-written, JoJo Moyes paints a picture of little known details about World War I. Keep them coming, JoJo!

The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers

At once a love story, a history lesson and a beautifully written tale of forgiveness.
