Book Review | A Fist Around the Heart

It’s been a while since I’ve read a really great historical fiction novel, and Heather Chisvin’s debut, A Fist Around the Heart, sounded perfect. It ended up being the book that truly got me out of my slump – I flew through this book and loved (almost) every second of it. (All reviews are spoiler-free unless […]
