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
The Hired Man

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!?
The Glassblower of Murano
Books | Marina Fiorato
Listened to this while on a road trip out west. I tried to follow the same path as the characters from Oklahoma to Arizona. Listening made the long hours of nothing but open plains seem like minutes. Great book. Solidified my love for Kingsolver’s books!
The Bean Trees
Books | Barbara Kingsolver
A fantastic tale! Loved the writing. My bookclub paired this with a visit to The Woodlands, in Philadelphia, which was the inspiration for the fictional Whiteacre.
