I couldn't put this novel down. Sexy, funny, sad but oh what joy. Horses, sexy bullying men, heartbreak and more. Jilly Cooper will hook you the moment you start reading. Her descriptions of places, people and horses is right on the mark. If you want a oasis of enjoyment grab this book.

I had previously read Riders and Polo and this one is the best yet. There is enough pages to keep the most voracious reader enthralled for days!!

This is a stellar hidden Gem. I totally enjoyed the writing and the insight into Edgar Allen Poe. Fact and fiction in one small well written novel.

The story line sings its own destiny.

Read this one!!

Thirteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher.

This was a difficult book to read but one of the best I've come across dealing with teen suicides. If you have high school age children living in your home it's a MUST read. This one will shake up your complacent world, make you sit up and notice.

Part mystery, teenage angst, you will follow the map with Hannah's words and thoughts.

Letters from Home by Kristina Mcmorris
Letters from Home

Nancy, March 30, 2011

This happens to be the best first novel I and my book club have ever read. It centers around three young women who room and board together as best friends. It takes place at the start of WW11.

Letters From Home is definitely is a 5 STAR read. Taut, tightly interwoven story of three young women rooming together searching for that special someone. It all started innocently enough when Liz meet two brothers who are ready to ship out in WW11. They meet at a local USO club where the girls meet there to hear Betty sing. .Betty a young flashy woman is a roommate with Liz and Julia.

Fate brings Morgan McClain and his clown of a brother Charlie to Liz's table. Liz's boyfriend couldn't make it as he is on the fast track to a political office. In just a flash of seconds Liz and Morgan are connected with their hearts. Love at first glance?? Things take a turn when Betty grabs Morgan while Liz is in the ladies room. when Liz comes out she sees Morgan dancing with her friend. Liz is hurt but just leaves. Deception, betrayal, the grittiness of combat and redemption are the skillful flowing themes in this book.

I was rooting for Liz and Morgan all through this awesome novel. Letters From Home stole my heart and placed warmth in my heart at it's ending. Thank you Kristina McMorris!

I cried with many of the characters, and through out many of the scenes set throughout this book. All three girls..Betty, Liz and Julia are connected through out their young lives. All have boyfriends and major choices to make to live their lives to the fullest. Betty is searching for that one true love and is unskilled unlike the other two woman. She ends up in the recruiting office and finds herself shipped out and in the jungle not to her liking. The growth of this one character is enough to fill your heart with gladness. Julia is going to college and apprenticing with a seamstress of the fashion world. Julia has a boyfriend Christian who is in the Navy. When she finally returns to her old life and asks for a second chance of fulfilling a dream.

Liz wonderful Liz learns so much of life and living, with letters she writes to Morgan under Betty's name. The deception gets out of hand quickly as their love grows through the letters.

Woven throughout past problems with family come to light and growth in the maturity of each is astounding!

I'm not a great reviewer but I dearly loved this novel and it holds a special place in my heart. I couldn't put it down and I was so touched by the travails all the characters went though to reach their potential. This book is a true keeper. If you never reach for another book do READ this one! You won't be sorry.

By the way the recipes are delicious! I did the Marshmallow one and they are so gone already!! I can't wait to try the others!!

I can't thank you enough for this novel!!

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (Oprah's Book Club Selection #62)

Nancy, January 1, 2011

This was such a roller-coaster ride that I really didn't know how to feel. I fell in love with the Sawtelle dogs and Edgar.

Edgar's dad's brother is a killer and killed off Edgar's dad. He insinuated himself into Edgar's Mother life. Edgar and the ending is heartbreaking. If you want to cry and be shocked read this novel!!
