Want to learn more about Boba Fett? This is the book for you then. Karen Traviss adds the correct flavors of the Star Wars themes and keeps you on your toes at the same time. This is the second of a series of books that will tug at your heart and make you say Oh No! and Ya! at the same time.
Typical of Debbie Macomber's writing style, Country Brides will bring a smile to you face and incite tears in the next moment. Full of the blossom of sweet, young love, this book is a light journey of two women that end up in totally different places then even they expected! Good reading.
This is an amazing book. It makes you feel as if you were there with Jesus and the apostles. As a 20 yr plus studier of the Bible, Jim Bishop has this down pat. A must read even if you are not religious. It will make you cry, so have a hanky near.
THE MEMORY KEEPERS DAUGHTER unfolds from an absolutely mesmerizing premise, drawing you deeply and irrevocably into the entangled lives of two families and the devastating secret that shapes them both. I loved this riveting story with its intricate characters and beautiful language.

This book was riveting from the moment I picked it up to the moment I set it down. My daughter just read it and felt the same way.
It is hard to let it go but I want another reader to experience this beautifully written book also.
I really loved this book, so much so that I rented the movie to watch it. The book was filled with more raw emotion than the movie. But it was also filled with pain, love and redemption.
Written in the first person by a 14 yr old girl named Lily Owens.Set in 1964 in South Carolina, Lily writes about her life which has been shaped by the blurred memory of the day her mother was killed.
Lily's caretaker, the fierce-hearted Roseleen, insults the three worst racists in town and gets beaten and jailed, Lily sets them both free and they escape to Tiburon, South Carolina- a town that holds the secret to her mother's past.
Taken in by three eccentric, educated, beekeeping sisters, Lily is introduced into the mesmerizing world of bees, honey and the Black Madonna.
This is a story about divine female power and love. A worthy read and worthy to hand down to your daughter. I am.
This book will have you in its grips from the first page. While the author says a lot of the book was made up to create the novel, it is still based in history and the horrors that made up the slave trade of the 1700-1800s.
Aminata is torn from her family, and sold in America where she is blessed with people who can see her intelligence and strength. Skills that her mother taught her as a child help her to reach a place of importance even as she is sold.
She loses many things in her life but creates a better life for many others in the process. All along you keep hoping beyond hope that she too, will find the happiness that seems to continue to allude her.
Since it is told in the first person you get a more graphic depiction of the horrors of slavery as seen through this young girls eyes, but you never get a real sense of all the facets of her personality.
Great read. I had a hard time putting it down to work!
This book was great like all Troy Denning books.He really adds the ongoing flavor of the Star Wars theme and makes you feel like you haven't missed a thing in the time-line.
A must read as are all of his SW books.
