"I get an urge, like a pregnant elephant, to go away and give birth to a book." STEPHEN FRY
Set on the shores of Lake Superior, this intricate family saga is beautifully written. Doe the reading world need more lighthouse stories? Yes, if it's this one!
Richardson's engaging novel is a tribute to the 1930s Kentucky Pack Horse Library. Cussy Mary Carter, Troublesome's traveling librarian, is also one of the Kentucy blue-skinned people. A solid book group selection.
Once in awhile a novel comes along that absolutely enchants me. I love Harry and his unique friends (including his trees). I totally agree with Debbie McComber who says the book "is worth its weight in gold".
A sassy and fun gay romance! I read it in one sitting. Loved it! So did Bookseller Chloe.
What a fine novel! Set in 1924 South Carolina about three strong women uniting to stand up to injustices in their small town.
Set on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts, this multigenerational tale is a moving story about family, marriage and community. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Ichabod Island. I hope you do, too.
A love story that is beyond time set in Grand Central Station. Grunwald's sense of place is outstanding!
A fascinating historical novel about the use of homing pigeons during WWII. Don't laugh! I have become quite taken with these brave and able birds.
One of the best novels I read during 2020. Little is known about Shakespeare's son who died at an early age. O'Farrell's prose is absolutely beautiful and her imagination never stops. Excellent!
I really enjoyed this book about two women going on an incredible journey to find the golden beetle of New Caledonia. Funny and very moving
Lucy and Emilia's grand-aunt Poppy takes them to Italy to attempt to break the 200 year old curse of the Fontana family: the second-born daughter will never find love. A novel filled with humor and pathos. And a great tour of Italy thrown in.
Poignant and funny novel about the joys and sorrows of living. You won't forget Eurdora or Rose.
Please excuse the gaudy cover. This is a compelling novel about the power of music. Australian aughor.
A fine novel about how the Red Scare affected Broadway during the 1950s. Fiona Davis has certainly done her homework.
A gripping tale that follows the relationship between two sisters as they navigate life after the tragic death of their mother.
One of the best novels I read in 2020. Beautiful prose and memorable characters. A mesmerizing look at slavery and freedom.
