Death Comes to Pemberley by P. D. James
Death Comes to Pemberley

CindyHY, January 1, 2012

Not quite a true "Jane" but enough of the original plus a fun murder mystery to make you feel satisfied with a bit more Austen. James doesn't give nearly enough character to Eliza Bennett, with much more focus on Darcy and the logistics of the mystery. Still, it's a fun read, and an interesting look into the 18th Century English legal system.

Everything needed for a delicious read: British, family, amnesia, marital conflict, the perfect potpourri of elements.

The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women and Friendship by Jeffrey Zaslow
The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women and Friendship

CindyHY, January 1, 2011

This book touches in many ways: it takes the reader back to her own childhood and teen years, reflecting the times we grew up in; reminds us of the women who have stood by us through the pivotal moments of our lives; and reminds us of why they are still so important to us as we grow older together. It is beautifully written--you can hear that music once more as you stand in the high school gym waiting to be asked to dance, you see yourself jumping on the bed with your girlfriends at a sleepover, and you experience all the angst and adventure of growing up female, with your best friends by your side.
