    From New York to Paris, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald reigned as king and queen of the Jazz Age, seeming to float on champagne bubbles above the mundane cares of the world. But to those who truly knew them, the endless parties were only a distraction from their inner turmoil and from a love that united them with a scorching intensity.

    What did you love best about Call Me Zelda?

    I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into the life of Zelda Fitzergerald. Robuck did a wonderful job of making you feel as if you were there seeing her life through her nurse. A great summer read..

    In Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker, novelist Jennifer Chiaverini presents a stunning account of the friendship that blossomed between Mary Todd Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Keckley, a former slave who gained her professional reputation in Washington, D.C. by outfitting the city’s elite. Keckley made history by sewing for First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln within the White House, a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and his wife, two of the most compelling figures in American history.

    Ronna says: "A different , authentic view of history!!"

    What would have made Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker better?

    This book seemed to be much more of a written detail of events than a narrative about Mrs. Lincoln. Not what I was expecting.

    Paris, 1878: Following the death of their father from overwork, the three van Goethem sisters find their lives upended. Without their father’s wages, and with what little their mother earns as a laundress disappearing down the absinthe bottle, eviction from their single boarding room seems imminent. With few options for work available for a girl, bookish 14-year-old Marie and her younger sister Charlotte are dispatched to the Paris Opera, where for a scant seven francs a week, the girls will be trained to enter its famous ballet. Their older sister, stubborn and insolent 17-year-old Antoinette, finds herself launched into the orbit of Émile Zola....

    Tango says: "Great concept does not realize its full potential"
    "Couldn't get into it..."

    Would you try another book from Cathy Marie Buchanan and/or the narrators?

    I just couldn't seem to get into this story. The narration seemed hard to follow as well.
