The Books of Rachel by Joel Gross
The Books of Rachel

SC, September 29, 2011

This amazing tale spans five centuries of a Jewish family where every generation has but one "Rachel". From the Inquisition in the 1400's in Spain, to Venice, Berlin, Jerusalem, England & finally to America. I was horrified, mesmerized, tantalized & nearly hospitalized. (not really, I got carried away there for a moment) I absolutely love being that entertained while learning a bit of history! Thanks to the compelling writing of this author.

I thought this book had a charming 'down-home' style of writing. Sweet, tender, & funny. I loved it!

Blackbird House by Alice Hoffman
Blackbird House

SC, September 29, 2011

Need a good read? 'Go ask Alice' Hoffman! Blackbird House is a delicious & skillfully collected story about a small farm on Cape Cod and it's varied owners as it passes through two centuries. I recommend this book as one that hit all the right notes. Hoffman is in her best form here, using her unique touch of mystery & magic to enchant & entertain her readers.

Run (P.S.) by Ann Patchett
Run (P.S.)

SC, September 29, 2011

Life's too short to read bad books! THIS book, however, is very worthwhile. What a pleasure to read such flowing & meaningful prose & enjoy the interesting story of a family in Boston & the unusual circumstances of their intertwined lives. THIS book is what "pleasure reading" is all about!

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

SC, March 31, 2011

This was my first reading of Neil Gaiman. I found it to be just what I was looking for! His prose is very likable, even while introducing us to an eerie new world. I found myself looking forward to my late-night reading sessions in the same way I might sneak a cookie after everyone else has gone to bed! Fun & intriguing, I definitely will read more by this talented writer!
