The summer is almost done! Here’s what participants in the Adult Summer Challenge have enjoyed reading this month.
This book is for anyone who wants to understand the plight of an undocumented worker in America and how it can affect families and children. This book and Diane’s story took me on an emotional journey that is worth taking.
Interesting read with lots of useful information about the current research on pregnancy versus the “common sense” suggestions often given.
As a longtime reader of historical fiction, this story brings to life women of war in a way that I have not yet seen. Although I have my favorite character, I am excited to read each player’s part in the story. I cannot use the word “heroine” to describe some of the characters as I feel it denotes something less than what they are…. The characters may be fictional; however, Quinn’s approach keeps the storyline true to history and invigorates the reader to seek more information about those events. Awesome book.
This moving novel of short stories perfectly captures the emotions and interconnectedness of everyday life. Strout writes with beauty capturing the joys and sadnesses of the simple unremarkable moments that make up life. A wonderful book, where each story keeps you guessing at the connection to the other stories. A joy to read.
Before reading this book I wouldn’t have thought a form of music could be portrayed through images and text. Intrigued? I hope so. This is an absorbing presentation of jazz musicians and its history.
