A Good Read :: x 2

  • "Affecting . . . . . a book about how times can never be so hard that they can't be eased when people come together." Denver Post
    The Persian Pickle Club, by Sandra Dallas --
    Set Kansas in the 1930's. The Pickle Club in the title refers a quilting group made up of women of all ages. These woman love and depend on each other through good times and bad. A wonderful book for a lazy summer afternoon. But, be warned -- when you finish the book you might want to start piecing a quilt block!

  • "A transporting drama . . . . truly artful fiction." The New York Times" Loving Frank, by Nancy Horan the Frank in the title is Frank Lloyd Wright and the story is based on his affair with Mamah Borthwick Cheney. Women's rights / Getting what you what out of life and then dealing with the consequences that follow --- are just a two of the issues in this story. Now, I do realize that this book might not be everyone's 'cup of tea' -- but, for me it was 'good read'.
Two totally different books to recommend this month and both, in it's own way were a 'Good Read' !!
