Highwire Moon by Susan Straight

Explored a whole new world!

Really gave me insight into what illegal immigrants/migrant workers deal with! I have so much more understanding of their situation--work and family environment. Interesting story line.

Loving Frank: A Novel by Nancy Horan
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Interesting, Dramatic
Interesting, absorbing story!

Written from the viewpoint of Frank Lloyd Wright's lover, it was fascinating and disturbing to me at the same time. The story lingered with me for a long time after reading it.

Disgrace: A Novel by J. M. Coetzee

Well written

Well written. I could really picture South African Life from the author's perspective. However, sometimes the story felt disjointed--kind of like several stories within one. Ending felt a bit "unfinished" to me.

Really??!!!

Come on...unrealistic expectations. While I applaud trying to live a more meaningful life for yourself and others, I was overwhelmed by this book! TMI--too much information crammed into it! Felt it was more about the author than in her trying to help others.
