I’m a big fan of historical fiction and recently noticed that I primarily end up reading WWII fiction. I’ve got two on my TBR for this Winter quarter and “In Farleigh Field” by Rhys Bowen is one of them. (Synopsis below) . I’ve just come off the weirdest mental, physical, and emotional week. I still can’t explain it myself, but I will say that I didn’t read a thing. So this week I’m back in the game and trying to catch up. I won’t get to “In Farleigh Field” before it releases on March 1, but I am really looking forward to it. . This year I’m trying to be more picky about what I’m reading and am trying to pile less on my plate. I’m trying to be in tune with the kinds of books I really want to be reading. What are some genres or authors that you save your reading time for? . Synopsis: World War II comes to Farleigh Place, the ancestral home of Lord Westerham and his five daughters, when a soldier with a failed parachute falls to his death on the estate. After his uniform and possessions raise suspicions, MI5 operative and family friend Ben Cresswell is covertly tasked with determining if the man is a German spy. The assignment also offers Ben the chance to be near Lord Westerham’s middle daughter, Pamela, whom he furtively loves. But Pamela has her own secret: she has taken a job at Bletchley Park, the British code-breaking facility. . As Ben follows a trail of spies and traitors, which may include another member of Pamela’s family, he discovers that some within the realm have an appalling, history-altering agenda. Can he, with Pamela’s help, stop them before England falls? . Inspired by the events and people of World War II, writer Rhys Bowen crafts a sweeping and riveting saga of class, family, love, and betrayal.
