Loved it! Easy read set in London. Inspired my visit to the 1752 Apothecary in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. #visitpa

I could not put this book down! I read it while on a road trip through Croatia. It really helped me to understand the culture, the impact of the war, and the people. I highly recommend it, even if you can’t make it to Croatia. #croatia

I cannot recommend this book enough to those about to embark on a trip to Venice. It’s an amazing historical fiction account of the glassblowing history of Venice. Who knew it was so full of murder, bribery, imprisonment and secrecy!?

Another great Kingsolver novel. I listened to this book while on a road trip out West. I loved the setting and characters so much I was inspired to visit the mining community upon which this is loosely based.
