In One Person by John Irving

Makes me wonder if the author is, you know.... Not your typical coming of age story. Full of humor, pathos, Shakespeare, boys and men, girls and women. Part of the story took me back to a most painful time in our American history, but I willingly went there to learn how everyone was doing, coping, surviving. I recommend this book highly, alone with all others written by John Irving.

City of Women by David R. Gillham

A wonderful addition to my long list of WoW! novels that constitute historical fiction, mysteries, stories of realistic, heroic women, and books that grip my attention right to the last page. There is a Reader's Guide included, and I would recommend this book highly for any book group that enjoys the above genre.

Liberation Trilogy #01: An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943 by Rick Atkinson
Liberation Trilogy #01: An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943

An outstanding history book, describing the early years of America's entry into World War II. Atkinson does not spare the icons of our military in describing their early mistakes, including the contempt of more seasoned British commanders. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the personalities of our early leaders,and was horrified by the tragic loss of so many lives due to ego-driven decisions. In summary, it's refreshing to read a book that sticks to the truth.

My Name Is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira
My Name Is Mary Sutter

mgreiner1, March 12, 2012

Persistence, passion, and determination are more important than beauty and wealth in this novel of the Civil War, and a woman who will not be stopped in her quest to become a doctor. A great read. Can't wait for more from Robin Oliveira.

Feast Day of Fools by James Lee Burke
Feast Day of Fools

Burke is a fabulous author. His latest, Feast Day of Fools, pulls one in to the story, and it's hard to come up for air. The twists and turns leave me guessing, and never quite solving the several mysteries. For me, that adds to the fun!
