On Kindle, I'm currently reading AFTER THE WAR IS OVER by Jennifer Robson. Essentially a stand alone, the characters are connected to her previous book, SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE. Here's a description:
After four years as a military nurse, Charlotte Brown is ready to leave behind the devastation of the Great War. The daughter of a vicar, she has always been determined to dedicate her life to helping others. Moving to busy Liverpool, she throws herself into her work with those most in need, only tearing herself away for the lively dinners she enjoys with the women at her boarding house. Just as Charlotte begins to settle into her new circumstances, two messages arrive that will change her life. One, from a radical young newspaper editor, offers her a chance to speak out for those who cannot. The other pulls her back to her past, and to a man she has tried, and failed, to forget. Edward Neville-Ashford, her former employer and the brother of Charlotte’s dearest friend, is now the new Earl of Cumberland—and a shadow of the man he once was. Yet under his battle wounds and haunted eyes Charlotte sees glimpses of the charming boy who long ago claimed her foolish heart. She wants to help him, but dare she risk her future for a man who can never be hers? As Britain seethes with unrest and post-war euphoria flattens into bitter disappointment, Charlotte must confront long-held insecurities to find her true voice . . . and the courage to decide if the life she has created is the one she truly wants.
Published in 2015, it has 384 pages.
Other than the Friends of the NRA banquet hell-athon on Thursday, next week will actually be awesome. New book by C.S. Harris arrives on Tuesday (squee!!), along with DVDs of Outlander and Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. Also on Tuesday, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to TV. On Wednesday, the second season of Broadchurch begins on BBCAmerica at last (woot!)!
No plans for the weekend to go anywhere. I would love to read, nap, listen to beautiful music. I'd like to do some throwing out of unneeded stuff in the house. I will for sure do laundry and vacuum and stuff. Sunday evening will be spent watching The Walking Dead.
Have a great weekend!
