Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies

A very interesting look at our elected officials. It is rather scary to think they have SO much power and what they are doing with it.

Gone with the Wind
Date Posted: 6/22/2009 | Go To Book Page

I think I have re-read this book 5 times. Each time I get more of the feeling of the South. Although the movie does leave out some important parts; I love both book and movies equally. That is ununual for me to like a book plus the movie.

Skeletons at the Feast: A Novel
Date Posted: 5/17/2009 | Go To Book Page

A truly remarkable story about WW II. This is really 3 stories in one. The Prussian farmer and his family trying to escape from the Russians and the Nazis, the POW from Scotland, the girls from the forced labor camp and the Jewish refugee trying to escape with his life while trying to findhis sister. I highly recommend this book.

This is a World War 2 story based on historical facts. It is about the Polish Resistance forces. I highly recommend this book. If we do not learn from our history; are we doomed to repeate it?

The Postmistress

I did not like this book.  The characters were poorly developed and had no redeeming value to the story.  I did read it because of the wonderful reviews it received; but I am sorry that I wasted so much of my precious reading time.

The Weight of Silence

This was a book I could not stop reading. It is about 2 missing seven year old girls. One of the girls is a selective mute while the other girl seems to be her soul mate and can speak for her. There were several twists to the story and I could not decide who the kidnapper was until almost the end of the book.  I highly recommend this book.

Winter Garden

This is a fantastic story.  I could not put down the book until I was finished.  It is a wonderful story of two daughters and their mother. The mother is a Russian survivor of WW II. The story is actually 2 stories in one.  The fairy tale of a Russian princess and the story of an American family trying to find itself.
