Blog Tour: The Last Lifeboat


I have been a fan of Hazel Gaynor for years, ever since I read The Last Christmas in Paris, so I am excited to be a part of Berkley's blog tour for her latest novel, The Last Lifeboat. I love curling up with a good historical novel in the summer, so I definitely have this book on my summer TBR list. It's based on real WWII event and is perfect for fans of Kristin Hannah and Martha Hall Kelly. I am a sucker when it comes to novels based on real-life events, so I can't wait to read this one. The Last Lifeboat comes out today, so keep your eye out for it!

Learn More About the Book:


Goodreads says, "In 1940, England is under siege by the Nazis. With men gone off to war, women, children, and the elderly are plagued by daily bombings and constant fear for their lives. Lily Nichols, a single mother living in London, believes that anywhere must be safer than here for her two young children. She applies for a risky evacuation program that would send her son and daughter overseas to Canada, following a long journey at sea. 
Alice King, a shy and quiet librarian, can’t stand sitting still amidst the wartime suffering that surrounds her. To play her part in the war effort, Alice volunteers to serve as a chaperone who will sail overseas, accompanying children to safety abroad. 
When a Nazi U-boat torpedoes the ship with Lily’s children on board, a single lifeboat is left adrift in the storm-tossed Atlantic… and Alice becomes one mother’s only hope for her children’s survival. The story follows Alice’s harrowing eight days at sea, and Lily’s fight at home for her children to make it back to England alive."
