3 responses to “Author Interview | #JorieReads a healthy array of #HistFic but it is a rare treat of golden blissitude to find such a hearty entry for #YA #HistoricalFiction such as “All is Fair” by Dee Garretson

  1. Women’s lives are often overlooked – I completely agree! I’m currently in college, but I’ve found myself drawn to history classes that primarily talk about women and their roles in history that are never found… especially after being randomly tossed into a Women in American history class. I think they opened a box of books for me doing that, haha. I feel I’ve learned so much from those classes that I never learned about before college and I’m grateful that I’ve been introduced to that, however random the class selection may have been.

    I am definitely interested in reading Garretson’s newest WIP when it publishes though! The Russian Revolution is something I was briefly introduced to in history class in high school, but they didn’t go further than, “Well, the Czar’s family got killed and there were conspiracy theories about the youngest daughter surviving, but we’re just going to focus more on the Soviet Union. That’s the nutshell version and we will now dive into the Cold War.”

    This was a lovely interview, Jorie, and I do hope you’ll get the chance to read All Is Fair (even though I did mention some drawbacks)!

    • Hallo, Giselle,

      Thanks for giving me such a lot of joy in being able to ask Ms Garretson a heap of lovely questions which not only spoke to the story at hand but our mutual love of these kinds of Historical narratives! I loved bringing this convo to my readers and it was a delight of joy to find a book I can’t wait to be reading!
