This, friends, will be just the first in a series of posts I am entitling:
"My loved ones feed my Book Addiction at Christmas."
I seriously scored in the bookstore gift card category this year. Boy, do I feel loved!
Here's the first haul of the season:
Crossing Brooklyn Ferry by Jennie Fields - woman with depressed husband tries to better her family's life
Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum - a woman tries to uncover her mother's story of the Holocaust
It Wakes in Me by Kathleen O'Neal Gear - book two of the Black Falcon trilogy
Children of God by Mary Doria Russell - continuing story of Jesuit priest Emilio Sandoz as he returns to his own world.
The Reckoning and Falls The Shadow, both by Sharon Kay Penman - fantastic historical fiction by one of the masters of the genre
Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks - a young woman caught up in liberating France from the Nazis
East of the Mountains by David Guterson - an old man ventures out on his last hunt.
No Angel by Penny Vincenzi - saga of a publishing family during WWI.
So, who's read these? Any comments? Suggestions? Catcalls from the peanut gallery?
