What a fascinating book about the copper king, W.H. Clark and his daughter who inherits his millions. She only@passed away a few years ago.

The War that Saved My Life | Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

Pickpick

I got this book thinking I would add it to my daughter‘s history curriculum since the setting was during WW2. It was not at all what I expected. While it is set in WW2 the plot is not focused on the war but on Ada and her life with a club foot. What an amazing story. So beautiful. I highly recommend.

Eggs Loved this-there's a sequel 🤗🤗 1y

I tried reading this several months back, but I could not get into it. I am glad it was chosen for our book club for next month. It was a wonderful story! I didn‘t want it to end. I even had a few tears.

I have not had a book that I could not put down nor wait to read again in a good while. This book had me hooked from the beginning. I didn‘t want to put it down and when I did, I could not wait to get back to it again. So good. So sad. Loved it.

I didn‘t know much about the Romanov‘s before reading this book. Such a tragedy. If only the Tsar had been a better leader, he could have saved his families life along with thousand of other Russians. I love learning about history through living books.

EvieBee I do too! I think I have this book in my collection. I‘m a little obsessed with the Romanovs. 2y
Lwiesman @EvieBee I would like to read more. The author didn‘t go into details about what happened to all@the diamonds, jewels, and all the belongings that Yurovsky took and were sent to the capital. 2y

Oh my! Where do I start? I know many loved this book but it drove me crazy!! I can‘t stand Mrs. Richardson. Rich, snot, better than everyone else, doesn‘t give her youngest daughter the time of day. Drove me insane!!!😖 There were other things I did not like. So I can‘t pick one of the rates. I need one that says irritating!!

Finished this book on the way to see family. Such an amazing story of the lives and struggles of the girls who worked in the radium factory. They didn‘t know the risks of radium. The horrors these girls suffered and the struggle to get the company to admit they were poisoned by the radium. Highly recommend.

xicanti I second the rec for Raina Telgemeier's books. I started with DRAMA and it blew me away. The whole Squirrel Girl series by Ryan North and Erica Henderson is fantastic, too. Even though the protagonist is older, her adventures have serious all-ages appeal. The same is true of Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell's Jem & the Holograms series. 2y
