The Hummingbird's Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea
The Hummingbird's Daughter

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were all well developed. The author articulates an underlying sense of humor in this dramatic, historical novel. I felt I was right there, living & experiencing life, struggles and the rewards of these Mexican people.

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
The Art of Racing in the Rain

Heartfelt view through the eyes of a dog of life & family. Enzo teaches us to be in the moment through his love of his master, and his master's love, racing. Loss & gain of life are dealt with graciousness and love. A great read throughout the book, the end ties up all loose ends. You do not have to be a dog lover to enjoy this book.
