Review for The Truth We Bury by Barbara Taylor Sissel

Review for A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang

Review for A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang

I am not much a historical reader, but there are a couple time periods that I really enjoy, anything from the mid teens of the 1900’s to the 1930’s I love to read about.

A page turner from the start.

Kang did a wonderful job giving us such a vivid picture of the world in 1918. The houses where the wealthy live, the streets and buildings in town. We also see the factories and stores and the apartments where the …
