    Story
    (454)

    Heiress to the red rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort never surrenders her belief that her house is the true ruler of England and that she has a great destiny before her. Her ambitions are disappointed when her sainted cousin Henry VI fails to recognize her as a kindred spirit, and she is even more dismayed when he sinks into madness.

    Karin says: "Good book, unsympathetic heroine"
    "Boring, Boring Boring"
    Overall

    I have previously really enjoyed Philippa Gregory's novels but this lead character was so boring and unhappy that I couldn't listen to her whine for more than 3 chapters. She was the mother of Henry Tudor and her life was right in the middle of the War of the Roses so I thought the period would be made interesting... wrong. I really cannot recommend this book.

  • If I am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love, Murder, and Liberation

    Story

    In April 2002, Janine Latus' youngest sister, Amy, wrote a note and taped it to the inside of her desk drawer. "Today Ron Ball and I are romantically involved", it read, "but I fear I have placed myself at risk in a variety of ways. Based on his criminal past, writing this out just seems like the smart thing to do. If I am missing or dead this obviously has not protected me...."

    Angie says: "I felt deceived by this book"
    "Living in Denial"
    Overall

    The book is very well written... But the author just talks about the problem (or rather her denial of the problem). I hoped that she would reveal her growth process from being a man addicted, weight obsessed, dress up barbie to the woman she eventually becomes. That would have been a far more interesting book. How did she finally "get a clue" and begin to value herself as a person? I went through many of the same situations... I know the process I had to go through and I wish I could have shared her process as she lived her way into a solution.
