What's in a Name, 13 rue Therese

I was really excited to read this book, love the cover, and read many reviews raving about it. And it did not disappoint.

I really enjoy books written in letter format, and this one was quite like that.  It also "travelled" which I really enjoyed.  I completely understood Louise's feeling about having a baby.  I'm not sure, I understood her wandering thoughts, and her means of entertainment were simple "unusual".  A most interesting read.  I recommend it. You might have guessed by now, I like to read of the lives of individuals affected by war.  Not sure why?

I read this book as part of the What's in a Name Challenge.

I've found that I enjoy books written in letter format too. It is more effective than I thought it would be. I love that cover too!

Hey, this one is on my list too! It looks really good.
Funny that both books we picked had a WWI theme.

I like the sound of this one. Enjoying the letter format myself too. Reading 'as always, Julia' right now, a collection of Julia Childs letters to her editor. Excellent.

Now THIS sounds like something I'd love to read! Anything French, anything romantic, anything that blends past and present. Thanks for the tip, dear Irene!
