hotelWisteria from Bookworm’s Dinner recently posted her review of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.  Here’s a snippet:

The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is a historical novel that takes place during WWII on the West Coast, when fears are acute and spies are imagined everywhere. President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9102 that was passed by Congress giving the government the authority to relocate first and second generation Americans of Japanese decent to internment camps. Even though they were told this was for their own safety, they knew they were being corralled, detained, watched.

  1. Thanks for giving us a taste of the full review (I’m heading over now to read the rest).

    I love that you’re posting partial reviews and links to the full review (rather than just a list of links). What a great resource this site is growing to be! I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating.

  2. Dawn, thanks so much for your kind words about the blog. We’ve been working very hard on it, and it’s great to see it coming together the way we envisioned. I’m glad you’re enjoying it so far.
