A delightful surprise!!! I picked this book during one of the $4.95 deals and did not know what to expect. I loved it! This is an inspirational romance and mystery. It is actually two stories about two different women (one from 1912 and one from today). The story goes back and forth between the two stories, eventurally connecting these two women. I will definitely look for more books from this author. Jennifer
Defending Jacob is a thought-provoking novel that will have you pondering the ending for days. I kept thinking, what would I do if I were in the same position of the mother or the same position of the father. The author is clever and presents equally compelling arguements for the defense and the prosecution. In the end, you suspect the truth but you don't know for sure. Very entertaining with lots of twists and turns.
This was an amazing, inspirational, true story about the Washington University Crew team from the 1930's. The main character Joe Rance has an especially unbelievable story as his father essentially abandoned him at the age of 15. He had to learn to fend for himself in the midst of the great depression. This story is about the underdog beating the odds and making history. You will learn a great deal about the sport of rowing.
The is a captivating novel that you will have trouble putting down. It is a compelling mystery and very entertaining, however, I was disappointed with the ending. I would have given it five stars but the ending seemed rather abrupt with several loose ends. Maybe there will be a second book.
Warning, if a lesbian love scene will offend you, then this book is not for you. This is a story of two women from very different backgrounds who have plotted against the other only to realize they have fallen in love. This book was somewhat bizarre and unexpected. Not at all what I thought it would be about. Nevertheless, it was well-written and entertaining. I was struck by the complete powerlessness of women in the past.
This is a novel about two men who met during wartime, beat the odds and survived horrific circumstances. They went on to partner in business and enter their own personal wars as oil tycoons. Throughout the book, the author refers back to an earlier time in Holland's life when he had a brief encounter with Bonnie and Clyde. I never understood why this was significant. This book did not seem to flow. At the end, I felt there were several unanswered questions.
Completely unpredictable. Shocking ending. Very entertaining. Lots of twists and turns and some tears. If you decide to listen to this you will learn a lot about elephants.
I got this during a BOGO deal. It is a book I have always wanted to read, and I have never seen the movie. This is a classic romance and comedy about a mother, Mrs. Bennett and her 5 daughters. Mrs. Bennett soul purpose in life is to get these five daughters married to the most eligible bachelors. She is always plotting and planning how to encourage these favorable matches. Quite amusing and enjoyable.
This is an interesting and educational true story about a rescued horse that defeats all odds and becomes a champion. I think I learned more about horse jumping than I ever wanted to know. Overall great story. At times, it read like a history book. Inspirational and uplifting. The underdog wins.
I got this book in a BOGO sale and wow what a book. Controversial is an understatement. Thought-provoking, absolutely! So, you think you know how you feel about capital punishment, maybe not. We'll written, but somewhat of a tear jerker. Be prepared for an emotional roller coaster.
Amazing! Must read/listen! This is an incredible historic fiction story told from two perspectives, a young slave girl and a young aristocrat from a wealthy plantation. These two girls grow up together and realize they have more in common than they know. This story is fiction but based on historical fact. Sarah, the main character, was a real person and her home still stands in Charleston, SC. The injustices during this time are maddening. This book will bring about laughter, tears and frustration. One of the best books I have ever read/listened to.
