    Great light story, full of indepth family humor with well developed "ordinary people" character. MUCH MUCH better than the movie - a good read for vacation!

    Their lives were a tapestry woven together by love and loss, tragedy, and hope. On the windswept coast of Nova Scotia, the rugged community of Cape Hawk has been a blessed refuge to two friends and their young daughters. Lily Malone and nine-year-old Rose have faced down terrors others can only imagine. They are making a new home with a haunted man who will do whatever it takes to protect them.

    An easy read/listen revolves around an emotionally abusive person and the victims who have been hurt over the years. Colorful narrative of feelings.

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Ron says: "Good McMurtry, not great"
    "One Woman's Wild West"
    Overall

    The wild west & all it's colorful historical characters as seen through the eyes of a lone woman over her lifetime

    Say the name 'Enron' and most people believe they've heard all about the story that imperiled a presidency, destroyed a marketplace, and changed Washington and Wall Street forever. But in the hands of Kurt Eichenwald, the players we think we know and the business practices we think have been exposed are transformed into entirely new, and entirely gripping, material. Conspiracy of Fools is an all-true financial and political thriller of cinematic proportions.

    Sharon says: "Conspiracy of Fools"
    "Soild View"
    Overall

    This is a review of the factual elements of the building and decline of the now household word:
    Enron. Appropriately titled - it's a modern version of the Emporer's New Clothes

    Sue Monk Kidd's stunning debut, The Secret Life of Bees, has transformed her into a genuine literary star. Now, in her much-anticipated new novel, Kidd has woven a transcendent tale that will thrill her legion of fans and cement her reputation as one of the most remarkable writers at work today.

    A richly vivid southern story lush in emotional details of feeling.

    "Perfect Title"
    Overall

    One of the best, well researched books of this decade. Unassuming presentation of the sequence of events revealing how a house of stick can easily fall. Once upon a time in corporate America the modern version of The Emporer's New Clothes .......... everyone who invests needs to read this one!

  • Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War

    From the perilous ocean crossing to the shared bounty of the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim settlement of New England has become enshrined as our most sacred national myth. Yet, as best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick reveals in his spellbinding new book, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a 55-year epic that is at once tragic, heroic, exhilarating, and profound.

    John M says: "Fascinating book about a little-understood time"
    "Untold Native Stories"
    Overall

    Overall the first half of the book moves at an even pace, fairly easy to follow until the author skips back and forth all over history's timeline to embellish episodes of an individual character before getting back to the sequence of events in the drama. The reader's tone is mellow and drawn out without much emotion. The insight into the Native American's lifestyle is facsinating, unlike anything I have read to date.

    Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime?

    Timothy says: "Fascinating book, despite the title."
    "Freak data strings"
    Overall

    Overall interesting correlation of social data and it's suggested economic impact over the last 40 years. Young parents may find some parts interesting - high school educators might pose the "how parents matter" discussion to their coming of age students. Too bad the last chapter "baby names" leaves an overall conclusion of "ok - so what".
