My Reviews

Informative, Dramatic, Interesting
A story of the connection between two girls of very different backgrounds and their journey through life.

We thought this was a perfect book to start our book club. It is a story of the bond between women, how that bond is challenged through life, and how women have faced the same challenges throughout history.

A study in relatonships between different societal classes, different races and between captor and captive,

For me, this book started off slow, but evolved into a complex story of relationships. The story involved the interaction between the rich and those that serve, the White Man and the Apache, the Apaches and the Mexicans, the men and the women within the Apaches and man and nature. The author does a lovely job placing you in a believable situation and making you care about each and every character. A good story and good fodder for discussion.

Boring, Inspiring, Slow
I believe the author had a worthy message, but I was not fond of her style of writing and we felt that maybe parts of her story were glossed over or omitted.

The author leaves her husband and embarks on a spiritual journey across the globe to save her soul.

Plain Truth: A Novel by Jodi Picoult
Interesting, Informative, Dramatic
Another terrific story from Jodi Picoult, The Plain Truth deals with murder that disrupts the Amish community and how modern and simple cultures overlap in more ways than one might expect.

I love the way Jodi Picoult writes and the basics of the story were very interesting and educational, but I found the story a bit slow and contrived at times.

The perfect discussion book -a fascinating journey filled with peril, fear, perseverance, and love

Jean Sasson tells the true story of Joanna al-Askari's life with such passion that you forget that it isn't Joanna's life she is writing about. It is a chilling yet engripping account of what is going on in our world today.

Ester's Child by Jean P. Sasson, Jean Sasson
Excellent story told from different points of view and highly educational

This was a fabulous book on the Holocaust and its after math told from the Israeli, Palestinian, and German perspective. You can get a real feel for their points of view and how the events out of their control shaped and affected their lives. It also gave me a history lesson on a personal level as opposed to a strictly factual level.

An nice perspective on two stages of life, with a surprise twist at the end.

The Not So Desperate Housewives thought...

this was an entertaining story, although heart-wrenching at first. It gives a fairly realistic rendering of a group of women, delving into each's history and how they are interconnected.
