I don’t know about you, but when I heard that Kate Quinn had a new book coming out in 2019 AND that it was set in my favorite time period, around WWII, I just about lost it!
As you may know from my Goodreads review, I adored WHAT ALICE FORGOT, and it was one of my top ten books read that year. I think I have recommended that book more to people in the last year than any other book. That’s how wonderful and rich and engaging it is! But be prepared to cry. (And that’s a good thing!)
So, you can imagine my utter delight at discovering THE HUNTRESS will be arriving on bookshelves in FEBRUARY 2019!!
Read this Goodreads Synopsis and tell me you aren’t hooked!
From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel, The Alice Network, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.
In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted…
Bold, reckless Nina Markova grows up on the icy edge of Soviet Russia, dreaming of flight and fearing nothing. When the tide of war sweeps over her homeland, she gambles everything to join the infamous Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on Hitler’s eastern front. But when she is downed behind enemy lines and thrown across the path of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, Nina must use all her wits to survive.
British war correspondent Ian Graham has witnessed the horrors of war from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials. He abandons journalism after the war to become a Nazi hunter, yet one target eludes him: the Huntress. Fierce, disciplined Ian must join forces with brazen, cocksure Nina, the only witness to escape the Huntress alive. But there’s one minor fact that might get in the way of Ian’s mission—a secret that he and Nina share. And the chase for the former Nazi forces them to confront it.
Seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride grows up in post WWII Boston, determined despite family opposition to become a photographer. At first delighted when her long-widowed father brings home a fiancée, Jordan grows increasingly disquieted by the soft-spoken German widow who seems to be hiding something. Armed only with her camera and her wits, Jordan delves into her new stepmother’s past and slowly realizes there are mysteries buried deep in her family. But Jordan’s search for the truth may threaten all she holds dear.
Yes, it’s not until February, 2019 that readers can grab this 560 page novel, but in the meantime you can read all of Kate’s other books!
