From Publishers Weekly
Readers who loved the bestselling Too Deep for Tears will also be ensnared by this ambitious sequel, once they swallow such overwritten sentences as the novel's opening line: "The sea sang and snarled and wept in a voice that echoed the ancient cry of mermaids in their shimmering isolation." Davis returns to beautiful, wild Glen Affric in the Scottish highlands as the primary setting of her passionate story about a young girl's search for the truth about her ancestors. The novel, which alternates between the 20th and 19th centuries, opens in 1988 on a small Scottish island where?on her 18th birthday and at the request of her biological mother, Celia Ward, who died many years ago?Eva Crawford is told by her parents that she was adopted as a baby. In a letter to Eva, Celia invites her daughter to learn more about her past by contacting her friend, Eilidh, in Glasgow. There Eilidh gives her Celia's ebony Chinese chest, which contains a journal written by one of Eva's ancestors, Ailsa Rose, in 1882. The journal, which unfolds in sections throughout the novel, depicts the colorful inhabitants in Glen Affric, a place of extraordinary raw beauty. Davis's 19th-century characters are so richly drawn that it's difficult to leave them when she returns to the less colorful Eva. Still, the intertwining of the two times creates an affecting story.

This is one of William Kienzle's "Father Koesler" mysteries. And a good one at that. A fun listen for a LONG trip since this is not an abridged version.

If you've never read one of these, you're missing a wealth of information to improve your life. There's something for everyone in these books and that's why this is the 2002 one, because I keep them for about 4 years till I'm willing to part with one.

This is a cute book that you can put your own dogs pictures in it. Would be good for a new dog owner or for one that feels their dog is family. "A photograph album for those extra special photographs and treasured memories to last a lifetime." Brand new, I got two of them for puppy warming gifts.


Dogged Pursuit: My Year of Competing Dusty, the World's Least Likely Agility Dog
Review Date: 1/8/2011
Helpful Score: 2


This book is a fun quick read about the trials (agility trials that is) and tribulations of working with a rescue dog and trying to overcome his bad start in life. Set in the Chicago area and using the actual names (most of the time) of those he crossed paths with made this especially interesting to me since I too attend agility trials in that area. He covers the whole feeling of belonging to a group that supports and encourages you and how breaking into those groups can sometimes make you feel like an outcast.

If you like dog agility or like to read about rescue dogs that have found their forever homes, then you'll enjoy this non-fiction book that makes you smile and say, oh yeah, been there, done that, seen that.

The Education of Little Tree (Audio Cassette) (Abridged)
Review Date: 12/23/2006


This is a candidate for high honours in audio tapes: the story is appealing, the narrator is excellent and the novel has been cut with great thoughtful-ness. Little Tree, orphaned at the age of five, goes to live with his loving Native American grandparents who teach him the ways of the Cherokee. The chapters are self-contained stories, yet the characters are sustained from one chapter to the next. This is due to the comfortable reading done by Peter Coyote who makes the listener believe that the story is his own personal history. Sounding a bit like Henry Fonda, he makes us cry and laugh and care, with straightforward acting and no tricks. J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine


Enjoying Bluebirds More: A Special Publication from Bird Watcher's Digest

If you'd like to get into the world of Bluebirds, this one will help guide you in the right direction. Don't try to put up boxes without a book to help you along the way or you could end up with a disaster in one of your boxes. Good information and easy to read and use.
