Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World by Anthony Doerr
Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World

nana k, June 4, 2014

What a wonderful story. Doerr writes in a manner seldom seen today. His descriptions are so beautiful that you have to stop and read it out loud. This is his journal of a year in Rome, but it brings Rome to life. It is filled with wonderful facts, places to see and it is obvious that he was looking at the city with fresh, though probably tired, eyes. If you have been to Rome or are thinking of going, it is a must. I read it while in Italy and am going to give copies to my friends that have been to Rome!!

The Beautiful Mystery (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #8) by Louise Penny
The Beautiful Mystery (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #8)

nana k, February 28, 2014

I love the Inspector Gamache series! They are awesome and so much better if read in order. I have enjoyed each one and read them in order. The writing improves and develops along the way. The Beautiful Mystery is marvelous. The author transports you to a beautiful setting, fills it with more beauty and then the evil. It was a page turner that I could not put down. Be prepared fill your head with the notes of Gregorian chants and wonderful mystery.

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
The Forgotten Garden

nana k, January 1, 2013

Kate Morton creates wonderful characters and a great story. It just a good book to cuddle up with and enjoy. I am in a book club and would not choose this book for discussion, but would tell all my book club friends to read it for fun! I wanted to go with the characters on their journey and see the places they were talking about, it was so real and allowed for empathy to grow and an opportunity to understand and look at things in my own life though a different lens. I am looking forward to reading her latest book.

Here is a book to savor and enjoy. Erica Bauermeister dishes up a lovely story that will pull you in and make you feel you are part of the book. It would be impossible to not feel you know at least some of the characters personally. Her descriptions are sensual and will draw you into beautifully told story. It is the perfect read for anytime,but especially during a nice summer afternoon. If you love to cook you will love the book, if you don't cook, you will want to start immediately by taking a cooking class!
