Rose Lady
Shalador's Lady - Anne Bishop

Nothing remarkable about this one. Like the previous install, it read more like a romance set in the Dark Jewell's world, with some glimpses in the main cast if you "are just here for Godzilla". That said, it does OK, or at least it didn't make me want to throw it against the wall out of the sheer stupidity inside like Tangled Webs.

Spoiled sour meets spoiled sick
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett

LOVED it. Sour Mary, spoiled Colin, chatty Martha, angelic Dickon, curmudgeon Ben, wise Mother, the whole thing.

 

Best part for me was where Mary starts shouting to Colin over his hypochondria induced tantrum. Lord, was the girl vicious! It was funny in an overboard, freeing way.

 

A very sweet classic  that makes you love unlikely leads.

Book review – Sight Unseen, by Susan Mac Nicol
Sight Unseen - Susan Mac Nicol

Loved, just loved this.

Loved the language, loved the story, and loved the way life goes on, only differently.

 

So happy to see that there were no quick fixes, and no miraculous come backs, only a hard-earned struggle to make life work again.

 

Kudos, author, you did a great job.

We need more books like this one.

Simply loved it.

 

*** Bought this book with my own monies ***

FRIENDSHIP: A True Story of Adventure, Goodwill, and Endurance - Francis Mandewah,Sr. Rosanne Rustemeyer SSND

Friendship: A True Story of Adventure, Goodwill, and Endurance by Francis Mandewah
Starts out with the author as a young child and his job on the farm in west Africa. Interesting learning about the village and how it operated.
After some education he lives with his cousin at the diamond mines. Church is very prominent.
Struggles with chores, walking 3 miles to school and still gets punished because the cousins wife didn't like him.
Ownership of the diamond mine details are told. Prayers and passages from the Bible help him along to achieve his goals of just getting educated.
He meets a man who is like a mentor and he is able to help with finances and other things. Love the travel and how he is able to do the things he needs to do.
Love the paying it forward and lifetime of travel and experiences and that it's brought up to the times we live in today.
Received from the author and this is my honest review.

Chrysanthemum
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This story is about a little mouse (girl) who has been told her whole life how wonderful and perfect she is. She truly believed this until she started school. All of her classmates teased her about her name, saying it's too long or that she was named after a flower. Each day she would go home upset and her parents would assure her that her name is beautiful and perfect just as she is. The cycle continued throughout the book until the end. Her music teacher stood up for her and shared with the class that she too was named after a flower and that her daughter has the chance to be named Chrysanthemum. This makes her feel much better about herself and suddenly all the students want to be named after flowers. This story would work well with first through third grade. It would be great to introduce bullying and also it would show that teachers are here to help, not just teach. Student could also be assigned roles of the peers in the book and act out different ways they could have responded instead of their rude comments.
