Book Friends Book Club May Picks

🌻May Book Picks 🌻

▪️How is it already May!? This year is flying by; but without further ado, your @bookfriendsbookclub hosts @bigskybooks + @mommaleighellensbooknook have 2️⃣ new Historical Fiction books to read together! May sometimes can be busy with the end of the school year + Spring events, but both authors will be joining us for a zoom, so we hope you can make it!

🌻 First up we have a debut author that is guaranteed to make you say—“How is this a debut!?” It has some of our favorite elements: unheard of history + strong female characters!! Say hello to Ashton Lattimore and All We Were Promised.

▪️All We Were Promised Mini Synopsis- A housemaid with a dangerous family secret conspires with a wealthy young abolitionist to help an enslaved girl escape, in volatile pre-Civil War Philadelphia. The rebel . . . the socialite . . . and the fugitive. Together, they will risk everything for one another in this “beguiling story of friendship, deception, and women crossing boundaries in the name of freedom”

▪️Note we’ll be meeting a little earlier in the month due to Memorial Weekend! This book is out now, so you should have no problem finding it. Chat + Zoom 5/19 @randomhouse @ashtonlattimore

Purchase the book on Amazon or Bookshop . org

🌻 Next we have another book with a strong female character and unknown history. We are so excited for Finding Margaret Fuller by Allison Pataki

▪️Finding Margaret Fuller Mini Synoposis- With a star-studded cast and sweeping, epic historical events, this is a story of an inspiring trailblazer, a woman who loved big and lived even bigger—a fierce adventurer who transcended the rigid roles ascribed to women and changed history, all on her own terms. Out Now! @randomhouse @allisonpataki

▪️We will be chatting + zooming with the author on 6/2
