It's time to give away a few books I've received for review! I'll give them away over a few weeks.
First up, an ARC of The Outer Banks House by Diann Ducharme! I don't know about you, but I could use a little taste of summer right now.
GoodReads (I edited out what I considered to be spoilers):
As the wounds of the Civil War are just beginning to heal, one fateful summer would forever alter the course of a young girl’s life.My 3-star review.
In 1868, on the barren shores of post-war Outer Banks North Carolina, the once wealthy Sinclair family moves for the summer to one of the first cottages on the ocean side of the resort village of Nags Head. Seventeen-year-old Abigail is beautiful, book-smart, but sheltered by her plantation life and hemmed-in by her emotionally distant family. To make good use of time, she is encouraged by her family to teach her father’s fishing guide, the good-natured but penniless Benjamin Whimble, how to read and write.
But, against everything he claims to represent, Ben becomes entangled in Abby's father's Ku Klux Klan work.
With vivid historical detail and stunning emotional resonance, Diann Ducharme recounts a dramatic story of love, loss, and coming of age at a singular and rapidly changing time in one of America’s most beautiful and storied communities.
I have to limit this one to the US only. I apologize, international bloggers.
