Zenzele: A Letter for My Daughter by J Nozipo Maraire
Zenzele: A Letter for My Daughter

Jean Marshall, August 4, 2012

Recommended in the BYU alumni magazine in the Books that made a difference section. Sounds like a good one for a book group to discuss. I will look into it.

The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry
The Secret Scripture

Jean Marshall, January 1, 2011

As a 100-year-old woman secretly writes the story of her life, of why she was committed to an institution t age 30, Sebastian Barry's language sculpts and embroiders and illuminates his characters as the human costs of the "troubles" of Ireland in the 1930s are brought under his tender microscope. This novel is both powerful and delicate as well as terrible and beautiful.

Uneversaurus by Aidan Potts

Jean Marshall, April 25, 2007

Well, it sounds very good, but I have not even seen it. However, I will get it, not for my 9-yr-old grandson who is obsessed with vehicles, but for his father, my son-in-law who is a paleontologist and occasionally speaks to school groups!
