The Quiet Place - Sarah Stewart, David Small
The Quiet Place - Sarah Stewart,David Small

An antidote to the toxic attitude toward immigrants of color right now. As if people of Northern European descent somehow have a more valid claim to American citizenship than indigenous people of the continent. It's like demanding that the UK remain for Romans only. 

 

Set in 1957 the dresses are spot on an appropriate, and matched with mid-century furnishings, signage, and motor vehicles.

Reading progress update: I've read 45 out of 386 pages.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - John Berendt

If only the King and King behemoth wasn't due back sooner, I could finish this and get a called square. I'm wretched at game theory. And staying focused. And following my own plan. So happily wretched.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - John Berendt

I am not zipping through it this time: I keep stopping to google maps and pictures. Yesterday I spent two hours window shopping for a Savannah townhouse. Not caring for pumpkin spice, I'm drinking my coffee from one of my favorite bookish mugs and I have a Halloweeny donut and a Halloweeny cat, so I am trying to get in the mood.

Cry, the Beloved Country - Alan Paton

Le chagrin vaut mieux que la peur, répéta le Père Vincent qui s'obstinait. La peur est un voyage, un terrible voyage, mais le chagrin au moins est une arrivée.

Nul ne sait ce que c'est que la vie, car la vie est un secret.

doesn't quite work for me
Beloved Lives - Marilyn J. Evans
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. And I gotta be honest here, it was very touch and go whether I would actually finish this! The story tells of April, and Mitch and Weston. April only has her say here, and I would probably have enjoyed in more if the guys had had a say. April and Winston have history, ancient history. And through time, they have, according to Weston, found each other and lived long and happy lives. But something doesn't ring true for April and she uses Mitch skill at hypnotherapy and past life regression to finally get some answers. Like I said, touch and go for a while. I got way past half way, and I still wasn't able to figure out what was going on, and where this was going. But I kept at it, hoping it would make sense at some point. It did, but only once it was all revealed in the book. It's not overly explicit, but there is some violence when they talk about how it all began. It's well written and I saw no editing or spelling errors. It just didn't work for me. But for a first time author, well done. 3 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
