An intriguing read. Beautifully written with very well developed characters. Much more than the typical mystery.

The Boston Girl: A Novel by Anita Diamant
Interesting, Informative, Insightful
Really a Young Adult book

We had mixed reviews in our club but all agreed that it truly is a young adult book particularly for those who know little about the immigrant experience in US cities. Most of our members agreed it was a pleasant read but lacked any depth and substance.

Two Family House

A very good, fast read. Lots of discussion about characters and their decisions. A debut novel so less sophisticated writing but a compelling story.

This is the perfect book club selection. We could have discussed for many more hours. The mother daughter relationships alone can be the topic of one meeting!
