Nueva novela espaƱola
Siempre Estare Contigo - Manuel Barrero

Esta es la historia real de una familia española como muchas, es la historia de mi familia, gente de campo con muchos sueños, que no se conformaron con su destino, sino que decidieron cambiarlo, lucharon por alcanzar sus metas con muchos esfuerzos y sacrificios, no es un texto de historia, aún cuando la novela se ambienta en los principios del siglo XX, he tratado de llevar un hilo lógico de los acontecimientos, con el desarrollo de la historia, de la manera más objetiva posible y sobre todo con mucho respeto por aquellas personas que pudieran identificarse ellos ó familiares de ellos, con las vivencias que aquí se narran.
Los personajes y algunas situaciones son figurados, para proteger a las personas reales que vivieron dichos acontecimientos, la historia comienza en Asturias, en un remoto caserío llamado Faidiello, allí nació el personaje principal de la novela, sus primeros años, la salida del pueblo, el servicio militar y sus inicios como trabajador del ferrocarril del norte.

Friday/Holiday Reads - May 24, 2018
I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer - Michelle McNamara,Patton Oswalt,Gillian Flynn
Harmony Cabins (Finding Home Series Book 2) - Regina Hart
The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 - Christopher Clark
He's So Fine - Jill Shalvis

I have a four day weekend, courtesy of a Family Day (military's way of adding days to holiday weekends so to give servicemembers time off) and Memorial Day. I plan on doing an extra shift at the library, then take the kids to our local pool tomorrow. Saturday through Monday I am just chilling out at home, reading, playing more Stardew Valley, and cross stitching. 

 

I am halfway through I'll Be Gone and I am loving it despite the non-linear storytelling, which is surprising that I can still follow what is going on. The crimes around the Sacramento area weirds me out a little, as we were stationed at Beale for five years and know the areas pretty well - in addition to my husband being a native of Sac. For a true crime book, it is fairly light on graphic descriptions of the crime scenes....or I have read too many In Death books to be affected by descriptions of said scenes.

 

To give myself a break from rape and murder, I am looking at putting more time into Harmony Cabins and get that completed by Monday and start He's So Fine. I am also trying to put in some time to The Sleepwalkers, but it is great at combatting my seasonal insomnia.

 

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend to my fellow Americans and happy Bank Holiday to my UK peeps.
