A fictionalized version of Edith Wharton's life plus that of her assistant. I enjoyed it, although as a romance author, I thought Edith was a bit wishy-washy when it came to romance...just saying.
Autism, as explained by a 13-year-old boy with the disorder. Perhaps this will get me a lot of criticism, but I have spent much time working with autistic youngsters and I found this a bit hard to believe. It's hit the best seller list, however, so judge for yourself.
What life might have been like for Anne Frank's older sister, had she lived. I enjoyed this book a lot.
My book club is reading this because the movie about Salinger just came out (Alas, none of us saw it)). I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it. Well worth re-reading.
Five people are haunted by an incident that happened in the woods one night long ago. Enjoyable read.
Why, you may ask, am I reading The Iliad? Because I love Greek mythology and because I took a course at Rice University's Continuing Ed program on the Iliad. It was one of the best courses I've taken at Rice and I enjoyed the instructor's interpretation. Sadly, Hector died this time, too. I keep hoping the ending will change, but it doesn't.
I'm the mother of three, grandmother of two, slave of two demanding cats. I've been a widow for four years and have taught resource courses for widows and widowers. I've written romance novels. See my website at www.eclectics.com/ lornamichaels. Currently I'm working on a memoir titled Stumbing Through the Dark.
