Across a Broken Shore by Amy Trueblood
Published by Flux on November 5, 2019
Genres: YA, Fantasy
A Winter 2020 Junior Library Guild Selection.
The last thing eighteen-year-old Wilhelmina “Willa” MacCarthy wants is to be a nun. It’s 1936, and as the only daughter amongst four sons, her Irish–Catholic family is counting on her to take her vows—but Willa’s found another calling. Each day she sneaks away to help Doctor Katherine Winston in her medical clinic in San Francisco’s Richmond District.
Keeping secrets from her family only becomes more complicated when Willa agrees to help the doctor at a field hospital near the new bridge being built over the Golden Gate. Willa thinks she can handle her new chaotic life, but as she draws closer to a dashing young ironworker and risks grow at the bridge, she discovers that hiding from what she truly wants may be her biggest lie of all.
Since it can sometimes be difficult to find good historical fiction books (not that they aren’t being written! fantasy just seems to get more hype), I put together a recommendation list and then turned it into a quiz so you can find another historical fiction book to read after you finish Across a Broken Shore! Be sure to tell me what book you got in the comments below!
Amy Trueblood grew up in California only ten minutes from Disneyland which sparked an early interest in storytelling. As the youngest of five, she spent most of her time trying to find a quiet place to curl up with her favorite books. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in journalism, she worked in entertainment in Los Angeles before returning to work in Arizona. Fueled by good coffee and an awesome Spotify playlist, you can often find Amy blogging and writing.
