Mrs. Kennedy and me

I really enjoyed the book. I was grateful for the lack of \\\"tabloid information\\\" in it. Very informative.

The Goldfinch

Enjoyable, entertaining, and informative on the art & antique world. Interesting characters. I was a bit nervous about the length of the book, it could have been less detailed.

The Light Between Oceans

I liked it. The characters need more depth. Everyone in the story had \\\"lost\\\" someone. Moral dilemma.
