Distant Land of My Father

Well written, page turner, every character is likable. The story of a family caught up in the downfall of Shanghai. It will give your club a lot to talk about.

Seabiscuit: An American Legend

You don't have to love horses or horse racing to love this book. If ever a horse had personality this is it. A moving story about a horse and the lives of the people that knew him. The book is ever so much better than the movie.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver, Camille Kingsolver, Steven L. Hopp
 
Informative, Inspiring, Persuasive
Animal Vegetable Miracle

I liked this book but I don't recommend it to book clubs because there isn't a lot to talk about. It is light and I skimmed a lot when it went on and on about the growing of certain vegetables or it was preachy about the dangers in our food system.

Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy
 
Boring, Poorly Written, Fun
Nights of Rain and Stars

This is my least favorite book by Binchy and the only one I read that wasn't about Ireland. The character's only connection is being on holiday they meet in Greece. It didn't move me.

The Copper Beech by Maeve Binchy

Dramatic, Romantic, Beautiful
Copper Beech

Binchy skillfully weaves the lives of residents of a town around this landmark tree. She gives a sense of place as well as the characters who live there. This is a very good book but not my favorite by her.
