""Circle of Quiet" is the first of the the Crosswick Journal series of 4 books telling of author Madeline L'engle's life at her country home, Crosswicks. Although often said to be at least somewhat fictional, I love each book like an old friend. The other titles are "The Summer of the Great Grandmother," "The Irrational Season," and "The Two-Part Invention.""
"This is the fist book in the delightful "Melendy Quartet" by Elizabeth Enright. The other books are: "The Four-Story Mistake," "Spiderweb for Two," and "Then There Were Five." Another "children's" series appropriate for all ages."
"I loved all of this series! It's not high-brow literature to be sure, but a great "Girls Night Out Alone Read." Chick lit at it's most enjoyable. My connection to the Roger's Park made it even more meaningful for me. I will likely re-read these--characters have stayed with me like old friends."
"Call this "Guy lit" if you like. I devoured these! I've always loved most things military anyway! Ok, so he changes a female character's name 1/2 way thru a book! So the female characters are rarely developed past one dimension! The guys are REAL MEN in the mold of John Wayne!! I go back to these when I feel the need to catch up with an old boyfriend or two!"
"This series is so delightful!! If you've never been in Africa, I highly recommend you get this as an audio book so you can hear it with all the names pronounced properly. I hope there are many, many more of these [I'm on #9 right now]."
"Although "Cheaper by the Dozen" is the best know of the Gilbreath books, Frank and/or sister Anne Gilbreat wrote several more books about the family all of which are very nice and enjoyable family fun."
"Each of the books in this series makes you feel you know the residents of the small apartment block at 44 Scotland Street in Edinburgh, Scotland, as well as their friends, relatives, quirks and fancies. Delightful."
