Book summary from Amazon:
Young Adelia Montforte flees fascist Italy for America, where she is whisked away to the shore by her well-meaning aunt and uncle. Here, she meets and falls for Charlie Connally, the eldest of the four Irish-Catholic boys next door. But all hopes for a future together are soon throttled by the war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home.
Grief-stricken, Addie flees—first to Washington and then to war-torn London—and finds a position at a prestigious newspaper, as well as a chance to redeem lost time, lost family…and lost love. But the past always nips at her heels, demanding to be reckoned with. And in a final, fateful choice, Addie discovers that the way home may be a path she never suspected.
Yay! A signed book:
This box also came with an Indie Bound flyer for additional book recommendations.
Verdict: I like that The Book Drop is starting to include additional perks for subscribers like a signed book. The value for this box isn’t great – $10.41 on Amazon for a $20 box, but occasionally they include a bonus book, so the value will be a little better over a few months.
