Review:

"A Venture of the Heart" by Amelia Judd

My Thoughts.....

I enjoyed this quick read where you found the characters well developed, defined and portrayed in this sweet romantic story. It was quite interesting seeing how this will work it all out for Pax and Sage as it becomes obvious that one will not be able to live without the other as fate will send them a olive branch. With both of these two main characters having their own issues will they be able to give into their true feelings as we find Pax is a 'risk taker and Sage is a rule follower and Pax's sister's best friend?' Well, to find it all out you will have to pick up "A Venture of the Heart" to find out how it all happens and how did the family play into it. Be ready for the twist and surprises that will keep your attention as you as turning the pages to see what is coming next.

An Australian in Search of Understanding: The Tree of Man by Patrick White
The Tree Of Man - Patrick White

As I found out after reading, this is one of the most famous and most widely-read novels of the first Australian recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Although critically acclaimed abroad it wasn't much of a success in Australia when it first came out in 1955.

 

It's the slow-paced life story of a good though rather taciturn farmer and his family in the stunning nature of New South Wales in the first half of the twentieth century. Things change all around, the children go their own ways and relations between husband and wife are characterised by affection and habit.

Rebirth of an Orphan Girl: The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons by Monica Cantieni
The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons - Monica Cantieni,Donal McLaughlin
Grünschnabel - Monica Cantieni

Here's the sublime debut novel of a - so far - rather unknown Swiss author. As a matter of fact, the book won the most renowned Swiss literary award. The story is simple and yet gripping:

 

Being only six years old and an orphan girl she is a greenhorn in life and in a family, when she arrives at the home of her new parents sometime in the 1970s. They are Swiss, but not particularly well-off so they live in a poor immigrant neighbourhood on the outskirts of Zurich with all its problems. The little girl needs to learn an awful lot and not just new words that she stores in all kinds of boxes (following the suggestion of her new father). With the help of her new - senile - grand-father Tat she finds her way.

Review:

"Silver Fox" by Misha Elliott

My Thinking:

I liked this cute and sweet romantic story that featured Jill Caldwell and Richard Sisk. It was beautifully well written by this author giving us a story of a younger woman and older man relationship. It was no doubt that after Jill meets Richard much earlier from her babysitting his daughter would they meet again under different circumstances now that she was 26 and he was 40.

The story takes off so very well with the additions of a few other supporting characters that will add light to the read that will only keep you turning the pages to see what is going on next. After Jill and Richard meet for the second time will there be something that will keep each other interested? "From the moment I first laid my eyes on Richard Sisk I felt an attraction to him." What was up with their 'FriendZone?'' Was this what Richard wanted and just why was that? Well, to get all of the answers and so much more you will have to pick up "Silver Fox" to see how well this author will bring it all out so well to the reader. I don't want to leave out how well I enjoyed how this author brings in on top of each of her chapter headings that will give the reader some 'thought provoking quotes' that one will ponder long after the read. In the end "Silver Fox" was definitely a beautiful read that I would recommend as a good read.
