Described as: "A strange, haunting novel about survival and love in all its forms; about sexual awakenings and dark secrets; about European refugee intellectuals who have fled Hitler’s armies with their dreams intact and who have come to an elusive new (American) “can do, will do” world they cannot seem to find.

These are just a few of the new books out this month that I'm hoping to get to! I just started The Dressmaker's War, Mary Chamberlain's debut novel about an English Dressmaker who is taken prisoner by the Germans during WWII. It looks very promising - not to mention the cover art is beautiful. I'll be sure to post a review upon my completion of it.

What are you reading this January? As always, I'm loving recommendations!
