Book Reviews

January let me read a few books - and two I really liked, the other... ahh... well - I finished it - but... well...

I really really liked this one... It was a Historical Fiction one again... But what amazes me... We sure didn't know what was right and wrong in the olden days - but people are resilient and tough - and it is amazing the way people can survive things we think are un-survivable.

This book is inspired by a true story, about a boy whose life is transformed at Seattle's epic 1909 World's Fair, and how it effects hime through out his life. Its a history, a love story, and one designed to make you more compassionate

Here is another one that will make you examine your compassion, and your ability to judge people. In both the bad judgement ways, and the ways that you perceive things to be... it was GOOD!

"An emotionally raw and resonant story of love, loss, and the enduring power of friendship, following the lives of two young women connected by a home for “fallen girls,” and inspired by historical events."  This was the amazon description - and I concur!!

My friend works with homeless and abused mothers - and I always thought she was the most compassionate person around - reading this confirms my opinion of her!!

And of course - its a Historical Fiction book too!

and the last book - 

This was my "meh" book - the description made me think I would love it - as it had espionage, royalty and war.... and it was really hard for me to get through - I felt lost a lot ... and the whole story didn't grip me - but I love Beatriz.... so I was determined to get through it.... maybe you would love it... but...

I just finished "Winter Solstice" by Rosamund Pilcher. It was published in 2011 but somehow I missed it. I love all her books and this one was soooo good. I couldn't stop reading it and I wished it would go on and on. Fiction but maybe in the 60s? Not really historical. Thanks for your recommendations.
