The Forgotten Garden: A Novel

One of my favorite books of all times! One person told me she kept a note listing all the different characters to keep them straight. Good idea.

The Secret Life of Bees

Great book around the time of the Civil Rights Movement. Our book club enjoyed it.

Bee Season

Although there were some good parts in this book, it was a very slow read. I personally don't recommend it.

Summer at Tiffany

I really liked this book. But of course, I love Manhattan! How exciting to work in Manhattan at Tiffany's no less! And to be in Times Square on V-J Day (although perhaps dangerous). I don't want to give it away, but was a bit disappointed about her college choice.

The Lace Makers of Glenmara Intl

A fast easy read. Predictable yet entertaining.

A Great Read

I enjoy historic fiction. This is a great, though sad book. It draws you in right from the beginning. You won't be disappointed.

History as You Never Knew It

I know we were supposed to study this in school, but I learned so much more about WWII from this book. I'm so very proud of our veterans and especially my Dad. It's amazing what Louis and other POW went thru.

Historical Fiction

Although a Historical fiction, I learned a lot more about the sinking of the Titanic and the survivors than I knew previously. The book really kept my attention and it was a very fast read.

Lots of History

A good topic, but the author included too much information, unnecessary information. Half the book was footnotes. But worth the time for the history and women's rights.
