Run by ann patchett

Run was read by our book club. And we really wasn't too thrilled about. We liked her first book bettwe Bel Canto. One person liked because it was a really good read with no conflicts. We also didn't think the book really got anywhere. It didn't really get into the characters.

Before The Storm by Diane Chamberlain

Dead Weight

Everybody liked it alright. It wasn't a smash it with everybody. Some said it was poorly written and the story just didn't seem real. Like who would leave there house after a hurricane and go to new york and just leave your house when it is in shambles. But some of it was true, charleston did have a hurricane in 1910 and the jail was correct. Nice love story.
