REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
The first of a promising new trilogy from Robert Goddard, The Ways of the World blends historical fiction and mystery against the backdrop of postwar Paris and London. It’s quite a history lesson in its own right, but neither does it skip out on the adventure– an adventure complete with spies, a sidekick, peril, suspense, and a girl (because hey, there’s always a girl.) it was a good setup for the rest of the series, which I have a feeling just gets better and better.
The Ways of the World is available on Amazon
