My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the advanced reader’s copies from my own TBR.
This book is a title I downloaded from Edelweiss.
Today, Tuesday October 26, 2021 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.
This debut novel will be published on November 2, 2021Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons (Penguin Random House)
ISBN: 9780593330753 – ASIN: B08XJ7HYWL – 464 pages1) The author. I read her “Tin Man” in 2018 and it remains in my memory as an exemplary novel.
2) The dual settings – Tuscany and London and the dual timelines.
3) “pub crawlers and eccentrics” – sound like my kind of people.
4) an unexpected inheritance is a trope I usually enjoy.
Somewhere in the Tuscan hills, two English spinsters, Evelyn Skinner and a Margaret someone, were eating a late lunch on the terrace of a modest albergo It was the second day of August. A beautiful summer’s day, if only you could forget there was a war on. One sat in the shade, the other in the light, due to the angle of the sun and the vine-strewn trellis overhead. They were served a reduced menu but celebrated the Allied advance with large glasses of Chianti. Overhead, a low-flying bomber cast them momentarily in shadow. They picked up their binoculars and studied the markings. Ours, they said, and waved.”
Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?
Why, or why not?
