Rich with historic detail, The Fragment by Davis Bunn takes you on an exotic trip from 1920s Paris to Constantinople during the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Muriel is an appealing heroine with her academic bent, her artistic eye, and her adventurous spirit. The faith element of this novel is also compelling. A short novel, but well worth the read.In 1923, young Smithsonian researcher Muriel Ross travels to Paris with her mentor, Sen.

    Sounds great! Nothing wrong with a good short novel to break up the long ones. I am currently reading a great novel based in the south during the time of slavery and it’s very good. Kind of dark, but that era was kind of dark. It’s called Ice Whispers by K. Willow, I believe it’s her first book in her Hidden Hills Saga. Good series so far, strong book one. I love most HF, but the more current times are my favorite. WWI ect, that time frame and through the Vietnam era.
