Savannah: or A Gift For Mr. Lincoln

This was a light-hearted easy read that our club read over the Christmas holidays. Some of our members were not especially fond of it while others enjoyed the colorful, spirited, "Charles Dickinsian" type characters. It definitely portrayed the courage, tenacity and resiliency of many who endured the horror of the civil war.

Anita Shreve has such a beautiful command of words. She weaves a touching story around a profoundly sad event in the life of a young girl at the cusp of womanhood. A good book to read when you're curled up by the fire.

A Thread of Sky

Deanna Fei's book was an enlightening & moving study of a Chinese American family. Coming from the southern United States, my exposure to Chinese culture is somewhat limited. This book offered a "crash course" in many facets of Chinese history, traditions, familial relationships, and even relationships between American-born Chinese and native Chinese. Ms. Fei's book produced even a few "light bulb moments" for me. If this is her first book, we have a lot to look forward to! Her imagery & use of contrasts throughout the book kept my mind's eye quite busy! It was all there: the good, the bad, the ugly... and the beautiful.

Bogmeadow's Wish

Terry Kay has, again, written a beautiful book! He has a genuine gift for writing and our book club had nothing but praise for it. In the Author's Notes Mr. Kay described his book as "fun...a lite romance...Irish magic." He writes "...it is a story I enjoyed discovering, one that left me happy with the experience." Well, Mr. Kay, we are also glad for your "discovery." It made us happy too!

Hotell on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

I LOVED this book. I learned a lot about the differences in Asian culture, west coast jazz & the unfortunate way the Japanese residing in the US during WW2 were treated. Young love is so special and the story portrayed between Henry & Keiko stirred up emotions I had long forgotten. Highly recommend & can\'t wait for Jamie Ford\'s next book.

A Really Fun Read!

Kevin Thrash is a talented new author who is delighting the literary world with his new book, The Fannie Carter Memorial Gas Station and Bait Shop (Volume 1). A collection of \"fables\" set in the deep south introduces us to (and makes us fall in love with) a jilted bride, a \"dumb like a fox\" widow, a \"hardworking, God fearing, wife loving, grandbaby kissing, horse riding, catfish catching\" horse whisperer and an enlightment-rendering old guru named Rafer referred to as \"The Master.\" Each story was thought-provoking, laughter-inducing and moral-conjuring! With the gifted imagination that Mr. Thrash possesses, it won\'t be long before people will be addressing him as \"The Master!\" A great book!
