My Reviews

 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Boring, Slow

A different way of looking at the lack of history and historical information about women in our country. The book was very well researched. The especially stark sentence that lets us know no one knows where Jane Franklin is buried brings it all together and resonated with this reader.

 
Optimistic, Insightful, Adventurous

A very readable book. The "f-bomb" is dropped 467 times (give or take a few!) but its use is indicative of and helps to illustrate the character. The book has a heartwarming message...something I've often thought, but Matthew Quick has put into a novel.

 
Unconvincing, Pointless, Confusing
Death of the Black Haired Girl

This book is not the psychological thriller it is touted as being. I found I could not find any of the characters likeable, or interesting enough to care about.

Year of Wonders

I've read her other fiction, but not this first novel until now. Brooks knows how to tell a good story, from a bit of historical fact. I would recommend her to any friend who enjoys reading historical fiction.

 
Unconvincing
Last First Day

Well written, but left me wanting more from the story and the characters. When I read fiction I like for there to be some issue to solve, or something to intrigue me. I just wasn't feeling like there was enough here to do that, and I wanted more from the author about her characters.

The Daring Ladies of Lowell

Our book club loved this book. We hope the author will consider a sequel to follow up on the two main characters!

 
Boring, Pointless, Slow

I think I am well past the age where I would have appreciated this novel. I would however, highly recommend Charles FInch's mystery series on Charles Lenox...I buy and enjoy those mysteries very much.

I Let You Go

Dramatic and suspenseful, I am going to continue to read other books by this author. I read it in one day, and in 2 sittings...interrupted by dinner!
