Day 10 for #adventrecommends I ❤️❤️❤️ Pat Conroy, ever since a prof in grad school made us read The Prince of Tides. I have 3 favorites by Conroy & all of them are gut-wrenching, beautiful, traumatizing, & unforgettable. TW-suicide, violence @emilyrose_x

The Hurricane Sisters: A Novel | Dorothea Benton Frank

The audio version of this family drama kept me entertained. This was my first book by Frank. I saw reviews saying it didn‘t measure up to some of her earlier ones. I‘ll have to check that out.

Found a #littlefreelibrary after my son‘s lax tournament. Dropped off the tagged book.

Yes, it‘s traumatic and distressing in places with depictions of abuse (physical and sexual). However, this is a must-read, given that it is a semi-autobiographical novel as well as a #bannedbook- we owe it to the author to allow her message to be heard.

@TrishB @Cinfhen @Balibee146 @BarbaraBB - do give it a go, it has an underlying positivity too, and it fits the #bannedbook prompt for #booked2020....

Librarybelle Good choice! 1mo
Eggs Agree 1mo
EH2018 Heartbreaking but well worth the read! 1mo

The Christmas Pearl | Dorothea Benton Frank
post image

Octogenarian Theodora, matriarch of the long-held Charlestonian mansion, believes this to be her last Christmas and she needs a miracle to save her family from their nastiness, greed, bullying, spending and carousing. She has a devoted daughter who desperately needs to step up and take control of this dysfunctional family. It's going to take an intervention of a "Christmas Pearl" to perform this miracle before the fate of the family is destroyed?

My #FriendsWithBooks bookclub reads our Christmas book in November so that in December we can have our Christmas dinner party and book exchange. It does feel weird reading a Christmas book before Thanksgiving! Lol 😝 instead of stringing popcorn as a garland I‘m eating it for breakfast!

The Secret Life of Bees | Sue Monk Kidd

Such a lovely read about a young girl learning what love is all about among a group of women and bees. A feel good book with a touch of YA but a perfect read for a lazy weekend and I am glad I finally read it!
