If I’m being honest, I was drawn to this book because the word “pie” is in the title. Pie is, in my opinion, one of the most excellent of desserts. But really, it’s the reviews that have me intrigued. . From them I learned that this story is told both from the POV of a mother and her daughter and we know the father/husband has been missing for some time. Set in Hawaii, this WWII story also covers Japanese families on the island and how they are considered enemies to some in the community after Pearl Harbor. Basically it has a lot of promise in sounding like something I’d be interested in reading. (full synopsis below.) . How is your April reading going? So far I’ve not been able to finish anything with this cold. I generally only read at night and being extra tired plus medicine is really ruining my reading schedule. But I have really been enjoying “Pictures Us In The Light” . Synopsis: Violet Iverson and her young daughter, Ella, are piecing their lives together one year after the disappearance of her husband. As rumors swirl and questions about his loyalties surface, Violet believes Ella knows something. But Ella is stubbornly silent. Something—or someone—has scared her. And with the island overrun by troops training for a secret mission, tension and suspicion between neighbors is rising. Violet bands together with her close friends to get through the difficult days. To support themselves, they open a pie stand near the military base, offering the soldiers a little homemade comfort. Try as she might, Violet can’t ignore her attraction to the brash marine who comes to her aid when the women are accused of spying. Desperate to discover the truth behind what happened to her husband, while keeping her friends and daughter safe, Violet is torn by guilt, fear and longing as she faces losing everything. Again. . #islandofsweetpiesandsoldiers #saraackerman #WWII #historicalfiction
