Necessary Lies | Diane Chamberlain
Pickpick

This book I would recommend from a history stand point and as a good read. This was really the way it was/is in the rural areas! From what I‘ve grown up hearing.

This was pretty good- but it is a little juvenile- although the consequences are very serious- of the 10 year secret. This made some of the characters annoying- in my opinion. Parts were predictable.....But, all in all, I got caught up the last 1/3 of the story. I would recommend it.

The Stolen Marriage | Diane Chamberlain
Pickpick

I always enjoy Diane Chamberlain- this one has more history included. It was an interesting read most of the time. Also wanted to add that my mom is a Polio survivor so that aspect of the story was interesting....she is from a poor area of West Tennessee. She was afflicted at about 14 months old- has a crippled leg- has lived to be 82. She has a built up shoe, brace and crutch- But is suffering with COPD currently. 😥 Hospice 🙏

Pelican71 My mother also has COPD, full-time oxygen. She was put on the ventilator in May for 10 days after an incident. Prayers for your mom. 13mo
Cpg Thank you so much! How‘s your Mom now? 13mo
Megabooks I‘m so sorry! You and your mom will be in my thoughts. My mom has polio too. 💜💜 She wears a brace on her left leg. She used to be able to walk with crutches, but when post-polio started in her 50s, she began to use a scooter. 6mo

Cpg @Megabooks Thank you! My mom didn‘t get to use a scooter- because of the oxygen- I think she would have too much to worry with to get on and off of a scooter without breaking her neck. 🤦🏼‍♀️ She‘s just recently declining more rapidly with the COPD and is pretty much bed bound- so she doesn‘t even wear her brace anymore- too much for her. Just a sad season of her life now. 😥 6mo
Megabooks Oh I am so sorry. My mom is declining more rapidly, too, now that she‘s in her 70s. Many hugs to you and your mom. I understand how hard it is to watch the progression. I hope she does as best she can each day. 💕💕 6mo
Cpg @Megabooks Thanks so much! I‘m going to stay with her this weekend- she‘s about 2 hours away. Hope we have a good weekend!!! Just treasuring the moments now! ❤️😍😥 I can‘t imagine life without her- but having grands now- will definitely take up a big part of my heart also!!! 6mo

The Glass Castle: A Memoir | Jeannette Walls
Pickpick

Really loved this book. The situations were just so bizarre/ kept me reading. The writer is so detailed and masterful at painting the picture. Also knowing it is a memoir- really makes it interesting yet heartbreaking at times. Have not seen the movie- but the book kept me reading!!!

Saints for All Occasions | J. Courtney Sullivan
Pickpick

I really enjoyed this book- the characters were believable and also complex. About half way through- had to have the tissue close by- just really touching! Needed that! It ended rather abruptly to my liking....something‘s left hanging....but I still enjoyed it.

Into The Water | Paula Hawkins

Interesting...not as much of a page turner as “The Girl On the Train”. Agree on too many characters and difficult to get into each one.
