In the tagged novel, a young widow in 1946 comes across a suitcase & inside are a stack of photos of twelve young women working as undercover agents to combat the Nazis & #LostInFrance & presumed captured & killed. This weekend "Carve Her Name with Pride" was a Kindle Deal & it's about real life heroine, Violette Szabo, one of the inspirations for the novel, who parachuted into Limoges & was later caught & executed by the Germans.

DebinHawaii I bought it of course... 💜 1mo
Cinfhen Both of these books actually sound really good. I‘m a little over reading WWII novels but I‘m inclined to try both. 1mo
megnews Lost Girls is my irl next book club selection. 1mo
Crazeedi Lost girls was a good book, I'll have to check out the other! 1mo

OK I haven‘t posted this for 2 years so I‘m allowed to use it again 😂 #romantsy
Layla‘s been touring with her band in Europe. She‘s tired, cranky, uninspired and under pressure from her mgmt. She gets notified that an elderly relative has left her a piece of land in the south of France so she ditches her responsibilities to go check it out for a few days. She gets lost, finds an even crankier Frenchman... 💕🌹💕

Centique ..and I‘ve given you some hero choices on the left there because the cover still doesn‘t do Matt justice 😂 (thank you Google) 1mo
CarolynM You've convinced me. Stacked 1mo
Centique @CarolynM yay! Hope you like it 😊 1mo

I always loved Bonnie Tyler's voice. I'm not familiar with this album, I'll have to go searching on ebay.

BarbaraBB She had (has?) a voice full of smoke! Loved her too in the 80s but don‘t know this album either. 1mo

The Parisian bookseller, Jean Perdu, is pining for his true love who has left the City, and he knows not where she has gone. He sets off on his barge, The Literary Apothecary, to find Manon. #lostinfrance #wanderingjune

Belgian Beer: Tested and Tasted | MIGUEL. VERSTREPEN RONCORONI (KEVIN.), Kevin Verstrepen

I didn‘t get #lostinfrance but nearly did get lost in Belgium, thanks to winding cobblestone streets and a tour guide going at breakneck speed. The beer didn‘t help either. #wanderingjune

BarbaraBB Ah, Belgium beer, I know what that can do to you 😉. Were you there holidaying? 1mo
Cinfhen Ha!!! Fun of being on vacation #GoWithTheFlow 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺 or should I say Foam 😜 1mo
Susanita @BarbaraBB I took a cruise in Northern Europe with my family last month. 1mo
BarbaraBB Great destinations. Edinburgh too, isn‘t it? 1mo
Susanita @BarbaraBB Yes! That was one of my favorite stops. 1mo

Montreal Stories | Mavis Gallant
post image

Unfortunately it's not practical to get #LostInFrance when you live in the U.S. and have only a 4-day vacation. But getting lost in Montreal is the next best thing- we greatly enjoyed all the delicious food, beautiful architecture, and rich culture. Didn't get to as many literary attractions as I'd hoped, but La Grande Bibliotheque library was incredible. Thanks again @tournevis @CouronneDhiver @LeahBergen for the recommendations!

LeahBergen I‘m so glad you had fun! 👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
BarbaraBB So glad to hear you had a good time. Montréal seems a great place to get lost in ? 1mo
Cinfhen We have plans to be in Montreal this summer...hubs & I are planning a Canadian Road Trip. I might hit you up for some info ❤️ 1mo
Billypar @Cinfhen That sounds like a great idea for a trip- happy to pass on any info/recommendations ☺️ 1mo
Suet624 @Cinfhen Ooooh, if you do go to Montreal and have the inclination to do a meet up, let me know. I'm not far from there. 5d
Suet624 I visited the Botanical Gardens on July 4th. A great thing to do when you want to leave the U.S. of A. I felt momentarily liberated! 5d
Billypar @Suet624 Sounds lovely! When our group left we all vowed to return- such an impressive city. 5d
Cinfhen I‘ll definitely let you know @Suet624 we‘re still just playing around with the idea. It‘s going to be a very spontaneous summer for us 🙃 5d

It‘s easy to get #LostinFrance with these works of historical fiction.


Crazeedi Hmm I've not read any of these! The books in the middle are a series? Good ? Before Versailles looks good too! 1mo
Crazeedi The books underneath look quite interesting too!!! 😉 1mo
Melissa_J @Crazeedi they are. The series is called The Accursed Kings. I‘ve read the first two and they are very good. I have hundreds of works of historical fiction, lots you would probably find interesting 😊 1mo
