The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay
The Power of One

SC, October 22, 2014

Wow! I am so glad that I bought "The Power of One" from Powell's based on a reader-review! Peekay is an English African boy who takes on his challenges with an awesome spirit & desire. He has some great mentors along the way: Hoppie teaches about boxing & that you fight "first with the head, then with your heart"; Geel Piet is an experienced con & a great boxing coach; & Doc who is a German pianist & botanist. They all have something to teach Peekay along his journey to find his power. Good writing, interesting setting, & a memorable character! One of my favorite 'recommend-ables'!

Now & Then by Jacqueline Sheehan
Now & Then

SC, May 31, 2012

I didn't know what to expect from this author, so I took a chance upon finding it in clearance. I found it to be well-written & a very enjoyable "summer escape" read. If you would enjoy reading a magical-type of story that aptly describes life in early Ireland, while still providing believable characters, then this is one you shouldn't miss!

Thanks for the Memories

I purchased this book online & frankly, was a bit turned-off by the cutesy cover. I had it a whole year before I even opened it. Then, the story line was a bit hokey & predictable--BUT--once I stopped being annoyed, I realized that I was still reading AND really enjoying myself! Caring about Joyce & her relationship with her father, her friends, & the mystery man. And laughing out loud! Ms. Ahern has a lovely warm Irish wit about her. This book is a gem.

Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland
Girl in Hyacinth Blue

Hyacinth Blue is my favorite color, for a book! (and may I say, that I also love the cover art & the cute small size.) But, the BEST part is the story! Tracing Netherlands artist, Jan van der Meer's, painting of "The Girl In Hyacinth Blue" backward in time from it's current owner to it's very inception, is an amazing journey that gives us glimpses of "colorful" lives in another place & time.

Leota's Garden by Francine Rivers
Leota's Garden

SC, September 29, 2011

I LOVED this book! You immediately fall in love with the characters in Leota's life & find yourself reading quickly to see what they will find as they search for roots, a meaning to life & faith. And Leota's brand of faith is a thing of beauty.
