Book Giveaway #2: Historical Fiction by Amy Harmon, Amor Towls, and Martin Cruz Smith

From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon. Whether it’s historical or contemporary, you can’t go wrong with a book by this great storyteller. Find her books HERE.

As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood. Now, more than a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. 

The Girl From Venice by Martin Cruz Smith. If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know about my fan-girling over Martin Cruz Smith. I just can’t help myself. Find his books HERE.

Venice, 1945. The war may be waning, but the city known as La Serenissima is still occupied and the people of Italy fear the power of the Third Reich. One night, under a canopy of stars, a fisherman named Cenzo comes across a young woman’s body floating in the lagoon and soon discovers that she is still alive and in trouble.

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. This is a new author for me, but after reading Rules of Civility and A Gentleman in Moscow, I’ll be picking up anything he writes in the future. Here are his books.

On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society—where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve.
