Many of you have been posting gorgeous October pictures. Here‘s one of October in south Louisiana. In other words, we don‘t have fall. It is still in the 80‘s and 90‘s here. We are getting a cool front tonight though. We still won‘t have those gorgeous colors many of you have.

VioletBramble Here in NYC it still looks like that too. 3d

This was a decent book but a little slow in the middle. I liked the ending. A young child is rescued from the river and there are numerous people who would claim her for their own. The family with the kidnapped child, the grandfather whose missing a granddaughter, the woman missing a sister, and a nurse who would just like to have the child. Who is the child? Where did she come from?

I had to bail. The plot seemed to be solid but I could not take the vulgarity anymore. I am not interested in reading explicit sexual details. I want a book with a good plot, characters, and beautiful details. This book just did not measure up.

This was a beautiful story. Although the story was not written about south Louisiana, it could have been. The wondrous descriptions of the swamp life was so familiar. I lived Kya and her story. I usually like thrills and chills when I read but this touched something in me. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

A very moving story of a group of SS agents called Dragonfly during WWII. Rich in creativity and historical detail. I loved this book. I‘ve read many, many historical fiction books in my life and this was one of the best. This was comparable toThe Lost Girls of Paris for me.

Velvetfur Hi Sherry, I know in my last letter I said I was moving, I don't want you to think I've forgotten you! I moved back up north, to here in Liverpool, but I don't have my own place yet (staying with parents for a bit) so haven't got a new address to give you yet.
