~~~Just Finished Reading~~~
On a dark night in 1775, Lizzie Boylston is awakened by the sound of cannons. From a hill south of Boston, she watches as fires burn in Charlestown, in a battle that she soon discovers has claimed her husband’s life.
Alone in a new town, Lizzie grieves privately but takes comfort in her deepening friendship with Abigail Adams. Soon, word spreads of Lizzie’s extraordinary midwifery and healing skills, and she begins to channel her grief into caring for those who need her. But when two traveling patriots are poisoned, Lizzie finds herself with far more complicated matters on her hands—she suspects a political plot intended to harm Abigail and her family. Determined to uncover the truth, Lizzie becomes entangled in a conspiracy that could not only destroy her livelihood—and her chance at finding love again—but also lead to the downfall of a new nation.
My Review – 5 stars
LOVED THIS! LOVED THIS! LOVED THIS! Got it on sale through Audible and so glad I decided to buy it. What a amazing read and beautiful historical fiction. I finished it with a new love of the United States. The sacrifices everyone made was humbling and emotional.
We forget that our founding fathers and mothers were humans just like us. We forget that beyond the what the history books tell us they had lives, made sacrifices, loved, lost, and made choices all for their freedom and ours.
God Bless America!
NO SPOILERS this time…too many amazing stories, twists, and turns. I promise you won’t be disappointed if you read it. Must see the if the author has written similar books.
~~~Now I’m Reading~~~
Goodreads Summary: The Midwife’s Revolt (Audible)
How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?
Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.
Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . .
For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that brings. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.
After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes—a novel that will make you laugh, cry, and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do—revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected.
After the amaxing first book and hours of crying, I knew I couldn’t wait for what happens next. Fingers crossed it will be as great as the first one.
