tpixie Is Voices from Chernobyl about the women who went back there to live? 3w
Daisey @tpixie Not specifically, but it includes some of those stories. It‘s personal stories of many people who were there or affected in the surrounding areas woven together by the author. I think her books are fantastic for really making you see history on a personal level. I‘ve also read her (edited) 3w

Pickpick

This book is a light pick for me. Overall I enjoyed the story, the world building, and the magic. Kasia & Agnieszka were great characters who grew through the story. However, it took a long time for me to become invested, and I did not like development of the relationship between the Dragon & Agnieszka. He needed growth and change that was never fully realized.

The Yellow House | Sarah M. Broom

Mehso-so

I appreciated the story that Sarah Broom wanted to share with this book, but there were several times I had to push myself to keep reading. It also would have greatly benefited from including a family tree, and thanks to a comment by @tpixie before I got in too far, I sketched one out as I read. It does not include nieces and nephews of Sarah and there very well may be mistakes, but it helped me as I read.

tpixie Great job! Send this to the publisher! 2mo
tpixie I posted this in our group but this podcast (listened at two times speed) gave me a better perspective of what the author was trying to write. Like you, I appreciate what she was trying to say but she needed a better editor or better writing skills. https://youtu.be/VFQPbebaBPM 2mo
Daisey @tpixie Thanks for sharing the video link! This conversation was helpful to me as well. I can't even say quite why I had such a hard time pushing through sometimes, because there were also sections where I thought the writing was great. I am glad that I finished it because it is an important perspective of New Orleans. 2mo
tpixie @Daisey - i‘ve been to the museum they have about hurricane Katrina - this book did bring a little more personal perspective on the whole situation. 2mo

The Yellow House | Sarah M. Broom

The author of this memoir sees herself, her family, her home, & New Orleans all as a part of her own self. This book has a string sense of place.
