The Sign of the Beaver | Elizabeth George Speare

Pickpick

This book is a HF. I would use it as a literature circle. Matt was left in the wilderness while waiting for his father to bring his family to a new settlement. While waiting Matt meets a chief. Matt has to make a big decision between joining the tribe or to wait for his dad to come back.

Audiospinning! I'm almost done with this audiobook and I am so sad. This book feels like an ending.

So good! I am loving the voice and tone of this thoughtful cataloguing of the carryings-on of an 18th-century French engineer digging up a cemetery..,

City of Girls | Elizabeth Gilbert
Pickpick

Completely racey...deliciously scandelous...yet innocent and alluring...a unique perspective of war times and the life altered after...about not living up to people's expectations. Giving yourself and others grace and second chances. About growing your own family by welcoming the people around you. Much depth and personal emotions put into the characters...you felt the real life anguish in the fictional characters.

This book is a HF. This story takes place in 1968 and is a story about three girls who travel to Oakland,Cali to see their mom who had abandoned them. They soon realize that their mother is not the person they thought she would be. This would be a great Lit Circle.

Time’s Legacy | Barbara Erskine
post image
Pickpick

Time‘s Legacy is typical Barbara Erskine. As always, Erskine is able to seamlessly switch her narrative between past and present, with this book set in Glastonbury of today and the early 1st century AD. While not my favourite Erskine novel — that honour goes to Child of the Phoenix — Time‘s Legacy was enjoyable nonetheless. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hi #LMPBC #round6 #GroupT! I have a giant pile of books for you to look at. Let me know if there are any you have read or aren't interested in. Descriptions for the untagged books in the comments. 😁

arubabookwoman Great choices! I love Sharon Kay Penmann, and would love to read Time and Chance, but do you think we need to read the first vol. in the series before reading it? (I have it but haven‘t read it). The other ones that most appeal to me are Behind Her Eyes, Dear Mr. M, and Orphan Train, but whichever you choose is fine with me. 7h
leslieseidel Yes, great choices! I like Orphan Train, Dear Mr M and The Witchfinder's Sister. 7h
DarcysMom @arubabookwoman I think everyone would do okay without having read the previous book. SKP does a good job of catching her readers up. 6h
DarcysMom @leslieseidel I am excited we are in the same group again! I like all of them, too. It is going to be a hard choice. 6h
