Loop by Joe Coomer

Annie, August 4, 2007

My 89 year old mother year old mother recently recommended The Loop to me as a good read and we are now both cheerleaders for it.

The Publisher's commentary leaves out all the best parts. The deftly humorous moments; the sacred moments in the midst of a freeway; the ways our lives can be transformed if only we will grab an opportunity and act with passion. It has "book goup" stuff in the back and would make a wonderful shared read.

The Lost Garden by Helen Humphreys
The Lost Garden

Annie, August 4, 2007

Helen took me gently, yet vividly through Gwen's losses during London's Blitz and World War II, her relationship with her mother and losses of self-esteem, with an underlying hope that affirmed the many loves in Gwen's life. An especially engaging read for one who treasures the gifts of gardens, or for one who strugges with day to day living in the midst of loss.

Promise Not to Tell by Jennifer Mcmahon
Promise Not to Tell

Annie, April 12, 2007

I thought this was great! A fun, fast-paced, suspenseful and spooky read, but with genuine depth and emotional resonance. I had to find out what happened next, and cared so much about the characters, especially the mouthy outcast turned local legend, Del Griswold. Highly recommended!

The Dead Hour: A Novel by Denise Mina
The Dead Hour: A Novel

Annie, September 6, 2006

Denise Mina is a rare author, well-worth waiting for. I was so affected by her previous books that the characters and settings haunted me for weeks on end. While waiting for this one to arrive, I've had to re-read the others--they are that good!
