Certainty by Victor Bevine came from Lake Union Publishing and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
World War II books typically focus on the war overseas but not on the affect of such a huge mobilization at home. This novel about thousands of recruits training in Newport, changing the tenor of the town, and ultimately accusing a beloved minister of sexual impropriety should be completely different.
The Banks of Certain Rivers by Jon Harrison came from me because sometimes you just want to treat yourself.
An author on Facebook is running a discussion about this book and I was intrigued by the premise: a teacher with an incredibly complicated personal life, breaks up a fight but whose actions, on video look entirely different. Now I have to catch up with the group so I can comment too.
