I was told this was the title of the book I was reading for book club, it was really not one I would have chosen and I wouldn't recommend it. There is another book called Seven days in May with a different author that was our book club book. Wasted time and money on this one.

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

I was filling in the rating on the book, I really don't love it,I don't love what happened and I don't love the story. But I appreciate the author actually telling the story in her voice, explaining what happened in such detail and confirming many things that I was aware of and making me all the wiser. I am embarrassed as a citizen that we have a president who is trying to lead our country and can't ! Thank you Hillary for explaining to us what happened!

Off the coast of Maine, Ruth Thomas is born into a feud fought for generations by two groups of local lobstermen over fishing rights for the waters that lie between their respective islands. At 18, she has returned from boarding school - smart as a whip, feisty, and irredeemably unromantic - determined to throw over her education and join the "stern men" working the lobster boats.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure, the review sounded promising but the writing was not what I thought it might be. The characters were not developed, I disliked the lead character Ruth. Some of characters were vulgar .

Has Stern Men turned you off from other books in this genre?

If I was was not leading our book group this time, I would not have bothered to finish it. However the epilogue was the best part... the book was almost finished and Ruth finally showed some heart.!

What didn’t you like about Allyson Ryan’s performance?

Actually she had more of a NY accent than a Maine accent, for a New Englander this was disappointing.

Any additional comments?

not recommended.
