Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others by Stacy Horn
Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others

twicelovedbooks, December 10, 2013

Have you ever read a book that made you want to sing?
Stacy Horn's "Imperfect Harmony" may make you do just that.

At the very least, you will be tempted to check out YouTube to look up some of these brilliantly shining songs she writes about so eloquently. Prepare to be completely lost in the music. If nothing else, check out 'O Magna Mysterium' by M. Laurisden....it make be the most profound six minutes you will spend listening to music. And it may inspire you to seek out a choir or choral group.

Stacy Horn has researched choral singing through the ages and makes a strong case for us all to raise voices in song -- to worship, to praise, to lift ourselves beyond our worry and sorrow and to share gladness of heart.

How the Light Gets In (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #9) by Louise Penny
How the Light Gets In (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #9)

twicelovedbooks, September 19, 2013

Her best yet!! If debuting on the NY Times Bestseller List at #1 speaks volumes, so does this entry to the Three Pines legacy. Louise continues to get better and better in her story-telling with characters you'd love to have as friends. Her pacing, timing, suspense, and humor are mixed superbly. Read it you must but only after reading the entire series, in order.

Family Guide London (DK Eyewitness Travel Family Guide) by Dk Publishing
Family Guide London (DK Eyewitness Travel Family Guide)

twicelovedbooks, February 21, 2013

A trip to London with kids or grandkids?
It will be a piece of (tea)cake with this guide.

Planning a trip will be a snap with all the detail about the sights, eats, & sleeps.
Once there, the guide will be the best source of information for your entire visit -- throughout London and into the outlying environs.
Even planning breaks from sight-seeing is easy with the "Blowing Off Steam" sections about each location. Everything is geared for family enjoyment for all ages.

I only wish that all guidebooks had this much detail packed into them -- prices for all levels of your budget and info about things to check online before you go.
Kudos to the DK Eyewitness Family Guides for making the focus family and making it fun!

My Berlin Kitchen: A Love Story (with Recipes) by Luisa Weiss
My Berlin Kitchen: A Love Story (with Recipes)

twicelovedbooks, February 14, 2013

Far more than another blog turned book, like 'Julie and Julia' (Julie Powell) or 'Orangette' (Molly Wizenberg) -- both delightful books.
This is a love story to many extended families and all their recipes. It's also a travelogue of the places that Luisa Weiss loves. She makes the reader understand her loves...family, place, and glorious food. I started reading with an eye to compare to the other blog-books and found myself utterly transported to Paris, Berlin, Boston, LA. And I grabbed my shopping list to add the items I needed to make spaghetti sauce and baked beans and Depression Stew. Thanks for bringing us along for the entire ride of ups and downs and ups.
