WednesdayWWW Wednesday is the opportunity to share what I’ve just read, what I’m currently reading and what I plan to read next…and have a good nose around to see what other bloggers are reading.

Thursday – I my review of Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout, the follow-up to the much-loved Olive Kitteridge.

Saturday – I joined the blog tour for The House That Alice Built by Chris Penhall sharing my review of this delightful book set in Portugal. I also took part in the monthly meme Six Degrees of Separation creating a chain starting with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

9780857303950When We Fall by Carolyn Kirby (eARC, courtesy of No Exit Press and NetGalley)

England, 1943. Lost in fog, pilot Vee Katchatourian is forced to make an emergency landing where she meets enigmatic RAF airman Stefan Bergel, and then can’t get him out of her mind.

In occupied Poland, Ewa Hartman hosts German officers in her father’s guest house, while secretly gathering intelligence for the Polish resistance. Mourning her lover, Stefan, who was captured by the Soviets at the start of the war, Ewa is shocked to him on the street one day.

Haunted by a terrible choice he made in captivity, Stefan asks Vee and Ewa to help him expose one of the darkest secrets of the war. But it is not clear where everyone’s loyalties lie until they are tested…

Published to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day and based on WWII war atrocity the Katyn Massacre, When We Fall is a moving story of three lives forever altered by one fatal choice.
