I read this book in a day. It is a great, first-hand account of a woman admitted to the State Hospital in Traverse City, Michigan. It is a great personal history of how the mentally disturbed people were treated in the not so distant past.
If you are ever in the Traverse City area, and like history, check out the history of this building. You will be amazed at what is evolving from what used to be landmark on the edge of Traverse City.
This is the most fantastic, personal, book I have ever read about someone's dog. I am generally not a fan of the kind of books that Dean Koontz writes, not that he is not a great storyteller.
But, this book is so much out of the realm of what he generally writes, that I literally could not put it down. It is such a heart-rending, personal, loving tribute to his 'daughter' Trixie.
In reading this book, I learned so much more about the great author, as a person, and he gives so much of his personal life and beliefs to his readers in this memoir.
This is truly an amazing book about an amazing dog by an amazing author.
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
This looks like a fairly easy concept for quilting with curves instead of straight lines.
I have not tried any of the patterns yet, but they are explained very clearly in words and pictures.
A unique idea on a traditional craft.
This is a delightful book. It is a great story that has it all......mystery, human emotions, and so much humor.
It was hard to put down, and had me laughing out loud at the antics of the characters in the book.
If you like quirky people, you will love this book.
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time! It is such an inspiring and unbelievable story that I kept checking the front cover to verify that it is really a true story.
You will be amazed at this story, whether you are a 'cat person' or not.
You must read this......it will touch your heart.
What a wonderful, entertaining book.
I loved both stories in this book.....of course, after seeing the movie THE LADY IN THE VAN, who wouldn!'t love the book?
And the book and movie pretty much followed along the same.
Great, quick read, with a lesson to be learned about life, in each story.
This book is a handy book full of all kinds of tips about cooking and baking. It shows how to avoid mistakes in cooking, substitutions when you are out of an ingredient how to fix the mistakes you DO make how to use the correct tool and so much more.
It is full of information for the adult, but written and illustrated in basic enough, concise terms that are easy for the beginning baker/chef to understand.
I got ontefor my 12 year old grand-daughter and she was thrilled and has used its tips a lot!
This is a great book, especially for young ones just starting to sew. My grand-daughters and I have enjoyed using many of the ideas and patterns to come up with our creations for them to give as gifts to their friends.
The instructions are very easy to understand, along with lots of pictures, for those 'visual' learners.
I got this book for my grand-daughter, who is 9, and not into reading for pleasure, hoping she would like it. She seemed so-so about it, but after I read the first chapter to her, she was hooked!! She immediately read the next 3 chapters to me.
I read the book beforehand, and it is a delightful, imaginative book, which really 'grabs' the young reader right away. A very worthwhile book to have.
This was an excellent book once I got into it. I could identify with some of the different situations she wrote about.
A different perspective and refreshing book that leaves you pondering your own life.
This is an excellent book about a young girl who just keeps bouncing back time after time through many years of neglect and abuse.
It is well written and easy to read. It puts you right in the middle of what is happening to her as she grows up.
A great book.
In my opinion, this is one of the best of all the books that Jodi Picoult has written. It is very informative about aspergers syndrome, and has a thread of mystery that runs through the book, keeping you on the edge of your seat as the end of the book draws near.
As usual, the ending totally surprised me!!!!
A great read.
This was another fantastic book by Torey Hayden. It was almost impossible for me to put down until I was finished reading it. It is so amazing what she can do to turn these kids' lives around....and then to be able to put down the story of the process in such an interesting and informative way is even more amazing.
She is a truly gifted person.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves children, but it will make you cry at times.
This was a very interesting, quick read about the growing-up years of a great author. When I ordered it, I expected it to be a book about poverty and hardship, and although it was not a book about growing up privileged, it was not the sorrowful book I imagined.
This book was a good book, and one I would encourage anyone who likes to read a book by Mary Higgins Clark add to their reading list.
