“Emotionally moving, evocative in their descriptions, each piece sticks with the reader, giving a pulse on the postwar world.” —*Starred Review, Library Journal
One of my favorite projects of the last year has been collaborating with nine other bestselling and award-winning historical fiction authors on a short story anthology, GRAND CENTRAL: ORIGINAL STORIES OF POSTWAR LOVE AND REUNION. Our tales of love and heartbreak take place one month after World War II ends at New York City’s iconic Grand Central Terminal, and the release of the book brought us together at the site for a snazzy launch party in period costume.
These stories are ideal for those who love historical fiction and who have busy lives, and will also give you a taste of the work of authors you might not have read. Book clubs will have much to discuss on the many difficult topics addressed in the stories (from domestic violence, to post-traumatic stress, etc.), and will enjoy finding the connecting threads between the characters.
Audiobook listeners will be delighted to hear that GRAND CENTRAL has just been released in the format. Here is the gorgeous cover for audio:
I am giving away three paperback copies of GRAND CENTRAL to those who leave comments below and share the post on social media by 9 PM ET on Thursday, September 18th. (US only, please.) Tell me if you are excited to read any of these fabulous authors, or what you love about Grand Central Terminal to win.
