My Reviews

On Kingdom Mountain: A Novel by Howard Frank Mosher
 
Life and times of Ms Jane Kinnison of Kingdom Mountain

My bookclub loved the prinicipal character, Jane Kinnison, because she was a strong, independent, and confident woman living in a remote town. She was able to live confortably and work hard, yet had time to participate in local events as well as continue with her art form (wood carving). She was also able to welcome her possibly last chance at a physical relationship with a man she knew was probably not going to stay, enjoy it, and go on with her life when the inevitable happens.

It was the general consensus that the rest of the characters were not developed as fully as her and that perhaps even her character could have been more developed to show more emotion when events happen.

All in all most of the members enjoyed the book and we certainly had no trouble at all filling two hours with discussion.

Signora da Vinci by Robin Maxwell

Informative, Interesting, Romantic
Very informative

It is a good premise and we checked a lot of the facts in her book and found them to be true and not even stretched much. It kept my attention for such a long book and I was not bored. I felt some of the sex scenes were too graphic, but perhaps in that period of time, they were perfectly acceptible.

Really good and you learn a lot about Florence, Leonardo, and even the popes.

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick

A Reliable Wife

Very dark gothic tale. Lots of sexual inuendos and some violence. It is about redemption and findng real love as opposed to obsession. Good descriptions and great phrasing. A little slow at first but picks up after a couple of chapters and it has some surprising twists.
