The Huntress

The Huntress by Kate Quinn has been on a number of recent booklists. I never did read Quinn’s previous book, The Alice Network, having grown tired of WWII, but I thought I would pick this one up anyway, since it’s been a while since I delved into that era. This is a great choice, though far too long (500+ pages). It took me a while to get through it, but I really did enjoy it. I might have liked it more, had it been not quite so long and dense. It tells three stories of Nina, Ian, and Jordan, and weaves all these stories together, both past and present. Of course, I liked the historical fiction-aspect, and the bringing together of all the characters, but I also liked the WWII without the gore and depression (though those are undercurrents for sure). If you have time and patience and like Kate Quinn, I would definitely grab this one. If you are looking for a lighter, breezy read, put this on a list for later.
