Oh dear. Here we are three days before Mother’s Day, and Kindle Nation’s spotlight all day has been on books by guys.* (This doesn’t mean that they are **for** guys only, of course; in fact Steve Anderson’s The Losing Role has scored some rave reviews from women. But still….)
This will not stand.
Fortunately, we’ve got some great women novelists to bail us out here at Kindle Nation. Here are 10 terrific reads by women, for everyone (including, most definitely, women.)
So if you have a Mom or know a Mom and you’ve still got some shopping to do, click on all ten of these titles and over on the right of the Kindle page you will see a “Give as Gift” link like this:
All you need is Mom’s email address, and for less than $10 you will be able to send her a whole summer’s worth of great reading!
Or, if you are a Mom … well … let’s just say that I’m guessing you already know what to do without any help from me!
And — oh, yeah — Happy Mother’s Day, and Happy Reading!
by Ruth Harris
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Price: 99 cents
Reviews & Ratings: Highly recommended, especially for those who miss the juicy, soapy, multi-generational novels of the 1980s.
Spanning three tumultuous decades from the post-war Forties to the rebellious “Make Love, Not War” generation of the Sixties, Decades is the emotional story of a marriage, a family and a world in crisis. If you like quality fiction in which moving things happen to believable people, you will love Decades.
