My Review of Beyond Connections by Lynn Miclea

A Superb Collection! I have read this author’s work before and enjoyed her writing style. The description appealed to me, and as the book was on pre-order it landed on my Kindle exactly when it was due. I especially loved how all the stories were different from each other. They showed the connections between family… Continue reading My Review of Beyond Connections by Lynn Miclea

Books Read in October

I’ve had some excellent reads this month and Signal Moon and The Story of Son were outstanding. Both were novellas by popular, but new to me authors. The latter has over 1K reviews and the former over 10k. I think that speaks volumes. Stowe Away and Dead’s Man’s Doll were books I had been asked… Continue reading Books Read in October

Karen’s Review This is the third book in a trilogy. The first Becoming Lili, the second is Chasing Daisy. The books are about a group of friends and this one tells the story of Rose.

My Review of Boy Meets Girl by Stephie Walls

Karen’s Review This is a love story, but actually it’s much more than that. It’s about the trials and tribulations of a country and western band, who are constantly on the road or in the studio. It’s a story of friendship; of growing up together, and of family values. It deals with grief, and a… Continue reading My Review of Boy Meets Girl by Stephie Walls

My Review of Single Mom and the City, Create, Money and a Rich Life by Takiya

Karen’s Review I was asked to read this by a friend. These days I leave parenting up to my children, and prefer to delve into fiction. However, I’m open minded. The book was not what I expected. It’s not about children, instead, it’s about life skills. It tells you how to make the best of… Continue reading My Review of Single Mom and the City, Create, Money and a Rich Life by Takiya

What Are You Up To?

My Saturday looks like this: Pitch an Pace - currently Kit, the main character, sits with her hands tied in a cave, and opposite her is a killer wearing a scream mask. Last night I watched a YouTube video about making your own emellismemts out of scraps. I’m a big crafter and that excites me.… Continue reading What Are You Up To?

Birthdays of the Past

I recently wrote about Uncle Alan as I remembered the life he lived. Remembering A Life Lived Today, July 20th, is my maternal grandmother’s birthday. Nana was born in 1904. Although I remember her fondly, it’s something else that comes to mind when I think of her. Alzheimers. Research conducted shows that, in 2019, there… Continue reading Birthdays of the Past

Short Piece by Paul White About Wonderful Moments in Life

One late afternoon, while quadding around the Eastern desert near the town of Safaga in Egypt, we were reminded it was February the 14th, Valentine’s day. At one point, as the sun was beginning its descent, we stopped to stretch our legs. While we were taking in the vista, our guide set a heart of… Continue reading Short Piece by Paul White About Wonderful Moments in Life
