Radio Girls | Sarah-Jane Stratford
post image

FEATURING: THE RADIO GIRLS

Before the Internet and cell phones.

Before women were seen as being more than secretar​ies​.

Anyone who enjoys the era between WWI and WWII and sharing the lives of women and their fashionable clothing and lifestyles will thoroughly enjoy RADIO GIRLS.

We follow Cat and all of the characters in THE FAMILY SECRET as their lives intertwine around family matters and a murder.

This was my first book by Ms. Thomas, and I enjoyed the story line and her writing style.

Readers who enjoy old houses, secrets, murders to solve, a few untrustworthy characters, and plenty of likable characters will enjoy THE FAMILY SECRET. 5/5

SaraFair This looks good! What time period is it? 1d
SilversReviews @SaraFair It's very good. Info from the author: The silent woman, the first book in the series takes place in 1937, the period leading up to World War II. The family secret takes place in 1941. The book I just turned in, the title of which I‘m not sure of yet, takes place in 1942. 1d

Today‘s Prompt: BLACK

Check out the keys?

Notice anything different with the keys besides the fact that you wouldn‘t want to type on this manual beauty?😊

ljuliel There‘s no #1 ? 1d
SilversReviews @ljuliel That‘s one thing. 😊 Check out the letters. 😊 1d
ljuliel Hmmmm..... all the letters aren‘t in the same exact place that the ones on my keyboard are ? Or they are all in capital letters ? 1d
SilversReviews @ljuliel Check out the top row of letters and the bottom row. That is the first thing I noticed. But...I was just told that all non-English keyboards have the difference I noticed in the letter placement of the two keys in the top and bottom row. 😊 Thank you for that information. (edited) 1d

Prompt: POISON

A whirlwind romance opposed by her mother, a marriage made in heaven, and a move across the country.

It definitely is a psychological thriller and makes you wonder who you can truly trust.

I would not recommend reading this book if you have been in a similar domestic abuse situation.

Returning home and being told by your mother that you shouldn‘t have come back is where we meet Trisha.

Trisha came back after 30 years because they found the bones of Lester, her step father, and bones that she and her neighbors and friends had something to do with.

Mystery lovers won't want to miss reading COLD WOODS.

Have YOU read any of these books?

MelissaSue81 I‘ve read Evelyn Hardcastle and Mrs. Westaway. Liked Westaway a lot, Hardcastle really confused me!! 2w
SilversReviews Thanks for the comments about the books. 2w
Aloisi_tribe I read Mrs Westaway and Evelyn Hardcastle. I liked Mrs Westaway. Evelyn Hardcastle is the best book I read last year. I agree with MelissaSue81 that it can be very confusing, especially at the beginning, but you have to trust the author. It‘s so good that I read it twice last year and listened to it on audio this past spring AND bought myself the paperback version at the B&N 50% off sale. 2w
