Booking Through Thursday
When is the last time you read a history book? Historical biography? You know, something that took place in the past but was REAL.
The last one that I read, that really captivated me was The Band that Played On by Steve Turner. It was about the band in the Titanic, about their lives and how they came to be on board for that fateful voyage. I was drawn in by the minutia, the twists of destiny that made them accept the offer to work on the Titanic. Very interesting and it painted a vivid picture not only of these peoples' lives but also of the time period.
My review is here, if you're interested.
