This book is a story with a deeper spiritual meaning. It is about Aurora, a woman struggling with agoraphobia and panic attacks. She cared for her ailing mother without leaving their Manhattan apartment for 10 years. Her mother dies and with the help of a "geekie" young man in the neighboring apartment Aurora searches for information about her famous father who she's never met.
A collection of short adventure stories. My favorite is Under the Hanging Wall; a murder mystery that takes place in a mine. I'm not a big fan of short stories but these were better than most. My first time reading Louis L'Amour.
I love the whole Alvin Maker series. This book continues the story with Alvin bringing former slaves and others to what will become The Crystal City. If you've read the other books, this one will not disappoint.
Michael Deaver writes an easy to read memoire of moments he spent with the Reagans during his 30 year association with them. You come away feeling his love and repsect for Reagan and Nancy despite their problems when Deaver left during the second administration.
It's about knitting being used as a vehicle for healing and the circle is more like a support group. Pain due to grief, cancer, loneliness, guilt, etc... is evident in the life of each member of the circle and relief is found to some degree in two needles and a skein of yarn among people you get to know and grow to love. Great story... flawless.
Set in the south and full of humor, Miss Julia's School of Beauty has Miss Julia upset over the possiblility that she and Sam are "living in sin". Was that quick little wedding chapel service legit and if not... Lordy, how will she able to hide it from her friends and Pastor Ledbetter! Great for the beach.
I read the last 100 pages in the bathtub... half of it filled with my tears. Thought provoking and very emotional. This book has made me even more sensitive towards parents with terminally-ill children. God bless 'em.
