Madeline Martin

The Last Bookshop in London: A Novel of World War II

A lovely WWII Historical Fiction about a woman who finds solace in literature as her community weathers the war and the blitz. It was particularly interesting to read how everyday people lived through rationing, preparing for bombings, and carrying on in the aftermath.

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows

Don’t judge a book by its title. While this book has a few steamy love scenes sprinkled throughout, it really is a book about a group of women learning to push against the restrictiveness of their community. It is a very heart warming story with a strong female lead. You can say you skipped the x rated parts. We wont tell. For readers who enjoy a book about unlikely friends and can handle a little erotica thrown in.
