    On the harsh and wild frontier of the American West, Alexandra Bergson struggles to fulfill her father's dying wish of establishing his family on the Nebraska table lands. Through hard times and abundant, through love and loss, through joy and suffering, Alexandra challenges both her family and the land in her quiet, honest way.

    What did you like best about O, Pioneers!? What did you like least?

    I was born in North Platte Nebraska - both of my parents were born and raised in Nebraska and I have fond memories of times spent on my grandparents farm in Nebraska. I thought it was time to read something written by a Nebraska author - what I liked best was the authors description of the Nebraska prairie - it is a very different kind of beauty and it brought back fond memories. I would say that the story line is not something new or unique but it was a nice story but again it was the descriptions of the land that were so breathtaking.

    Confined to a hospital bed, Scotland Yard's Inspector Alan Grant is bored. To divert his attention from his pain, a friend brings him pictures of faces. He becomes engrossed with the portrait of Richard III. How is it possible that such a sensitive-appearing soul could have been portrayed as the odious villain, the Wicked Uncle of history, responsible for the murder of his young nephews, heirs to the British throne, in order to secure the line of succession for himself?

    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this book at the same time I was reading the book TUDOR ROSE - the story of Richard III and how the Tudor Dynasty began - and of course the murder/disappearance of his 2 nephews. I found it very interesting and the case The Daughter of Time presents is compelling and will definitely cause one to stop and think - Who Really did benefit from the murder of the two boys and why.

    Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottoline’s first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her—now she’s back with these all-new, exciting adventures. She’s farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed—ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisa’s finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes.

    Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Scottoline Serritella and/or Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Scottoline Serritella ?

    A funny book that will make you laugh - - as a single parent I recall so many of the same moments of trying to keep everything together and wondering how I would survive - yet alone how two kids would survive thrive and grow up to be responsible adults. It reminds us that humor really is the best medicine.
