Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen

Sarah Bird

Gritty and wonderful Civil War story. Fantastic for lovers of civil war fiction and great adventure stories. Cathy doesn't let anything stand in her way! Though born into bondage on a "miserable tobacco farm" in Little Dixie, Missouri, Cathy was never allowed to consider herself a slave. According to her mother, she was a captive, destined by her noble warrior blood to escape the enemy. Her chance at freedom comes with the arrival of Union General Sheridan, the outcast of West Point who takes the rawboned, prideful young woman into service. At war's end, having tasted freedom, Cathy refuses to return to servitude and makes the monumental decision to disguise herself as a man and join the Army's legendary Buffalo Soldiers.

Amazing historical novel of the women who delivered library books on horseback to remote hollows & notches in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky. Cussy Mary Carter is the last of the Blue People, whose father is a coal miner, trying to marry her off for her own safety – with disastrous consequences. This fascinating story gives us a very personal look at white prejudice, and these isolated people struggling to survive.

The Winter Soldier

Daniel Mason

$16.99 $15.63

Grim reality during WWI. Lucius is training to be a doctor (despite his noble parents objections) when he & his friends join the army expecting to be posted in a field hospital. Instead he learns hands-on surgery from Sister Margarete in a small unheated, pitifully equipped church on the Eastern Front. Lucius is intelligent & perceptive: he observed what we now know is PTSD and began treatment with calming drugs instead of sending them back into action.

When Books Went to War: The Stories That Helped Us Win World War II

Molly Guptill Manning

$16.99 $15.63

While the Nazis were burning hundreds of millions of books across Europe, America printed and shipped 140 million books to its troops. The story of how the books were received, how they connected soldiers with authors, and how an army of librarians and publishers lifted spirits and built a new democratic audience of readers is as inspiring today as it was then.

Courting Mr. Lincoln

Louis Bayard

$16.95 $15.59

This wonderful novel helps Mary Todd shed her reputation as a shrewish madwoman, by giving us an understanding of who she may have been prior to her famous marriage. Bayard's excellent writing has garnered many comparison's to Jane Austen and I agree that he portrays smart characters with wit and depth. A truly enjoyable read.

Spinning Silver

Naomi Novik

$17.00 $15.64

A perfect grown-up fairy tale about the determination and quiet competence of women doing remarkable things without knowing first that they can do them. A brilliant interpretation of 'Rumpelstiltskin, ' digging deep into that story's anti-Semitism and pulling up something nourishing from the roots . . . One of the strongest fantasy novels.

American by Day

Derek B. Miller

$14.99 $13.79

Wonderful sequel to Norwegian by Night. The competitive interplay between Chief Inspector Sigrid from Norway, and the New York Sheriff Irving Wylie keeps the story rolling along – funny but intense – as they search for her missing brother, Marcus.
