A sweet story that starts with Gram disappearing and her three granddaughters go to her house to try to figure out where she went. I loved all of the characters! Highly recommend it!

A story about evacuees that flee Florida to Grace and Charles Phillip‘s farm in North Carolina. Lots can happen in a short amount of time.

This is an amazing collection of short essays from Lisa-Jo‘s life. The middle of so many different areas of life and exactly what I needed as I start my forties.

Definitely not a book I would read again. Andrew is 42 and lives a totally made up life. It‘s about figuring his own life out and what he does along the way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 for me

A quick fun read was exactly what I needed after all of these WWII books. I really liked the main characters and their bonds. Nobody‘s life is ever perfect.

MallenNC I liked this one too. It is peony favorite of her more recent work. 2w

A young cabdriver named Ed. He is in love with his best friend Audrey, drinks coffee with his dog, and plays cards with his friends. Nobody thinks he‘ll amount to much. He happens to be at a bank that gets robbed, stops the robber, and then the first ace arrives in his mailbox. Great read!

Mistress of the Ritz | Melanie Benjamin

Overall the author did a great job of writing about two people from WW2 that probably would have never been written about. Blanche and Claude Auzello are husband and wife. She was an American and he was a Frenchman. I honestly almost quit the book a time or two but I‘m glad I gave it a chance. It got better in the middle and I wouldn‘t have predicted the ending.

Some women will go to great extremes to lose weight and will also let the opinions of others matter more to them than what they think of themselves. The overall story is okay but I couldn‘t get attached to one character. I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek | Kim Michele Richardson

A very interesting story. A woman named Cussy who delivers books to people in the mountains with a mule. The relationships she made along the way with her patrons. So hard to be a woman of another color among a bunch of white people in the 1930s.

sblbooks This one is on my June TBR. I'm looking forward to reading it. 1mo

How many moms take time out for themselves while their kids still live at home? I know I don‘t get much alone time, even with teenagers in the house. After three years of being a single parent her husband shows back up and she gets some me time. I enjoyed this book.

So heartbreaking! A story of working in prison camps and the strong bonds of the prisoners through the eyes of a young teenage girl named Lina. I really don‘t think I could have endured what they all had to endure.

Lovesbooks87 Yes! When I read this I had no idea that this awful part of history even happened! 1mo

I loved the friendship between Grace and Audrey. The experiences they had and the comfort level that they had with one another was amazing. It‘s not easy to trust others with your baggage, let alone a stranger that soon becomes a friend.

I‘m not sure that the title actually fits this book. Martha started out as a weak character but I grew to like her. I‘m grateful it ended better than most of the book went. Not my favorite book. I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.

Overall a pretty good book. I‘m not one that jumps on the bandwagon when people say it‘s a fabulous book. I loved Kya as the main character. The ending actually surprised me. I am usually good at predicting the end but I was wrong this time.

I don‘t quit reading books once I start them as I hope they will improve. This book was about a lady named Beryl. Her strong will kept me reading but it‘s not a book I would read again.
