McKenna by Kathleen Sherwood
McKenna

Michelle, April 16, 2007

My Mother-in-law gave this book to me to read. I am not a reader but after reading this, I became hooked. It has opened a whole new world for me. I absolutely loved it and the characters. Down to earth people facing struggles just like you and me.

Waltzing the Cat by Pam Houston
Waltzing the Cat

Michelle, January 11, 2007

I'm going to spend the rest of my life looking for a house with hardwood floors. This is one of the top books I've ever read, and I want to invite Lucy to be a part of my life forever. Pam Houston is a master of writing stories that capture true emotion, humorous situations, and human weakness.

Bone: One-Volume Edition by Jeff Smith
Bone: One-Volume Edition

Michelle, January 5, 2007

I waited almost 10 years to finish Jeff Smith's story of the Bone cousins, and once I did, I regretted being done because I wanted to know more. Written with humor, sadness, and lessons in compassion, family bonds, and humility, this tale is great for all ages and a rare gem.

Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant by Anne Tyler
Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant

Michelle, January 5, 2007

As usual, Anne Tyler delivers characters who live and breathe long after you put the book down. The description of a dysfunctional family that still manages to hold on to one another is moving, funny, and consuming.
