Waiting for the Day by Leslie Thomas

Waiting for the Day

By Leslie Thomas

A nostalgic look at WW2 as four individuals prepare to play their parts in D-Day. A young wife entertaining soldiers while her husband is away, an adulterous but doomed liaison between two old flames, the desperate need for comfort from a stranger before the spy heads off France, and the camaraderie and common aspects of ordinary soldiers on both sides. A comfortable and very readable story.

The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad

By Asne Seierstad

A unique insider view of life within an Afghan family unit – especially for the women. Although Sultan Khan, the bookseller of the title, is a man who loves books, he’s also a committed Muslim with very strict views on family life.
