Code Name Hélène

This is a terrific new book which I really enjoyed. It’s an historical novel about an intriguing, brave woman who worked as a spy during WWII.  It’s also a beautiful love story.

Diplomat's Wife book cover 

The Diplomat’s Wife 
by Pam Jenoff 

have a fantastic book to recommend! The Diplomat's Wife by Pam Jenoff! I listened to the Audio from Hoopla and I was hooked from the very beginning. I am very rarely surprised when reading books but this book had several moments when I audibly gasped out loud! I couldn't wait to go on my walk so I could keep listening to this book. The story, the narrator, the characters - I loved it all! This is the second book in a series and I didn't read the first one but I didn't feel that I was missing anything!  

I just loved this book!

Epiphany Machine book cover  

The Epiphany Machine 
by David Burr Gerrard 

Light on the science, heavy on alternative history, what I like most about this science fiction novel is the tragicomedy. The protagonist is an annoying young man who gets wooed by the mystery of an “epiphany machine,” a strange contraption that tattoos personal revelations on user’s arm. With messages like, “Abandons what matters most,” “Does not understand boundaries,” and “Wants to blow things up.” Those who receive these tattooed messages will never know if they are who they are because of the revelation or if the machine can really see their deepest faults.  
*Just a warning, the language is crude and sexually graphic. Additionally, this story touches on sensitive topics.
