We really get into the mind of the artist. You feel like you can see from above and wish you could shake the characters or yell in the their faces.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks PENGUIN GROUP Viking and netgalley for this ARC.

So much to learn and love with this book. Reading real history makes me appreciate novels even more. I’d love to see a documentary on PBS about this book also.

Fates and Traitors by Jennifer Chiaverini

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thanks PENGUIN GROUP Dutton and netgalley for this ARC.

We all know the story but this book offers the perspective of all the players together plus Booth’s family. This book made me think about what historical figures our future’s children may read about in 100 years. Nothing stays hidden forever, but the understanding and empathy take time.
