I thought it would be easier to share this as a post rather than an answer in the comments.
What’s Nora reading? She sent me a list — that you can now add to your summer reading list:
December ’41 by William Martin. A thriller set right after Pearl Harbor.
The Golden Gate by Amy Chua. A historical police procedural/mystery, set in the 40s again. This was an ARC and will be out September 19, 2023
And a reread–for too many times to count–of Mary Stewart’s The Crystal Cave. (Which you can find in libraries and bookstores everywhere.)
