Thanks to a kind member, Lorraine, I have found The Good Earth.

If you have a line on the Nanny Diaries in LP, i would be glad.

If you have any deals on upbeat, no Stephen King or depressing, LP books, I might be interested

Thanks to all

Jill

I have a few LP books on my shelf. My g'ma has really gotten into reading recently.  I'm posting the ones she's read, so I can request more from other PBSers for her. I'm a boxer, too, so I'd love to do a trade...

Jill,

I have a nice LP (library book) that is free with any order from  my shelf.

The Vineyard
Barbara Delinsky - ISBN-13: 9780743204262 - ISBN-10: 0743204263

Here is a synopsis. My 80 year old Mom  loved it. I will PM you also,  in  case you don't check back here. Rose

Book Description:

In The Vineyard, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky (Lake News, Coast Road, Three Wishes) has written her most complex and emotionally rewarding novel -- a story of two women, a generation apart, each of whose dream becomes bound with the other's.

When Natalie Seebring announces only months after the death of her husband of fifty-eight years that she plans to marry a vineyard employee, her children are stunned and upset. In an effort to help them to understand, she decides to write a memoir. To assist her, she hires Olivia Jones, a young woman who yearns for a family of her own.

Hoping to find in Natalie an idealized surrogate mother for herself -- and a grandmother figure for her young daughter -- Olivia, an inveterate dreamers, is instead caught up in a Seebring family crisis while trying to come to terms with her own past.

The lives of these two women of different generations, parallel in so many ways, provide, The Vineyard with a powerful and moving story as the fantasy of an idealized life, complete with perfect romance, crashes headlong into reality.
