I just finished reading The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani. It was a little slow in the beginning, but once I got into the middle and till the end, I could not put it down. I found it very heartfelt and I found myself crying (which means I was really into the characters.) Nancy Warth

Love Ken Follett....

I just finished listening to "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn". It was wonderful - don't know why it took me so long to listen to it or read it; definitely going to get it for the Kindle.

And Ladies of the Club by Helen Santmyer. A beautifully written post-Civil War saga. Besides following the girls'/women's lives, I enjoyed the references to great art and literature with a little historical fiction thrown in and at 1100 pages, you don't have to worry about it ending too soon. Although I borrow most books, this is one I will buy for my re-reading shelf.

I've just finished reading Common Justice by Pam Bingemann on my ipad and it is
amazing how she captured the true and raw emotions of the South in this complicated murder mystery with all of its twists and turns! You feel like you are living in the midst of this racially charged act of terror as you accelerate to the shocking unpredictable conclusion!!! I can't wait for her next book!!!

The Authority on Child Safety, by Hays, Weart and Fulkus
This is a must read for all concerned with child and youth safety. This is a practical primer with what to do and scenerios that make the information easy for children to understand and comprehend. This book should be available to child care workers, teachers, law enforcement and basically anyone concerned with child and youth safety. Perry S. Turner, Chief of Police South Miami PD(retired) Inspector General/Assistant Secretary Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, (retired)

The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. I had to keep moving forward because the story was so interesting, and when I finished I started all over so I could enjoy her beautiful prose.
