I've always said that a really good short story is one of the more satisfying reads, if the author can pull it off. This week for #FictionFriday #FridayFiction I've put up a #bookreview for the collection of stories by one of my favorite authors, William Boyd, "The Dreams of Bethany Mellmoth"
You’d be forgiven if you’ve never heard of Milly Bennett, but now is the time to correct that oversight, because she was one of the first female war correspondents, and author Carrie Callaghan has highlighted her very interesting life with her new novel “Salt the Snow”.

In their third collaboration, authors Williams, Willig, and White (aka Team W) follow a family legend that spans two world wars and discovering the truth, with the stories of three women. This is "All the Ways We Said Goodbye" which was released on January 14, 2020. You can read more in my #bookreview on my blog here. https://tcl-bookreviews.com/2020/01/17/their-objects-of-valor/
This is my last #bookreview for 2019, for another historical fiction novel set in the late and post-WWII era about women sent from England into Nazi occupied France in order to help get information back to London.
