My Reviews

Bride Island by Alexandra Enders
 
wonderful narration, characters are well established, good length

Our book club suffered through a couple duds the last few months, but this one has lifted my spirits. Enders creates a world where things are not "black and white." Characters who I thought were type-casted surprised and softened me. At first I didn't think I could relate to an alcoholic mother who leaves her baby behind, but a few pages in and I realized how the same we all really are. Great first novel, leads to easy and involved conversation, and was a good length (240 pgs?) for (most of) the members to finish in a month.

A Stranger in the Kingdom: A Novel by Howard Frank Mosher
 
Insightful, Dark, Inspiring
Kingdom County is barely fiction

Living in Northern Vermont, often referred to as the "Northeast Kingdom," I felt a real connection to the people and the land of Kingdom county. Mosher tells the story without making the usual type casting stereotypes I've come to expect (and resent) with rural stories. Quick read, good discussion.
