The Rec League - heart shaped chocolate resting on the edge of a very old bookThis Rec League is from Kay. Thanks, Kay!

My catnip: books with two plots, relevant to each other, taking place in different time periods. An example would be Sarah Maine’s The House Between Tides or Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden. There’s usually a romantic element but they’re not necessarily romances.

Sarah: Does Susanna Kearsley fit, I wonder? It’s dual time line but sometimes the characters cross over or between the timelines. But if this person loves pairs of storylines that parallel each other from distant time periods that’s Kearsley 100%.

Nicola Cornick, too. The Phantom Tree would fit, and The Last Daughter of York. ( A | BN | K )

I just got an email about a book that fits: Mrs. Nash’s Ashes by Sarah Adler, ( A | BN | K ) which comes out in May: Just in time for summer, MRS. NASH’S ASHES takes us along for two romantic journeys set decades apart: a laugh-out-loud road trip romance and, a moving 1940s-set sapphic love story. In present day, former child-star Millicent Watts-Cohen is on what she believes to be simple a mission: hop on a flight from Washington, DC to sunny Key West and deliver the ashes of her elderly best friend to a long-lost lover . But when every flight in the airport is suddenly cancelled, Millie’s only hope at keeping her promise to dear Mrs. Nash is the insufferable—and ridiculously attractive—Hollis Hollenbeck.
