There is something special about the coming-of-age genre. As a reader, it’s thought-provoking and relatable to witness the highs and lows of growth in a character’s life. No matter who we are or where we come from, we all come of age in our own way – making it the ultimate commonality. So, if you are seeking an empathetic story that speaks to fundamental aspects of the human experience, check out these three highly acclaimed coming-of-age novels.
The Birth of a Spy Couple is the book for fans of espionage fiction to read this holiday season. It’s a compelling tale about a spy couple who emerges from a chaotic world while serving a military assignment. I was immediately drawn into author Ian Griffin’s story – one that he wrote after serving in the United States Army.
