OK, I finished "The Girl on the Train".  Wow!  Reminds me a lot of the old "Rear Window" movie.  Suspense, thriller, page turner for sure.  And as I said, hard to follow, at least I found it to be so.  Story written from 3 points of view in alternating chapters, not in the same timeframe at all, some passages are merely dreams which I had trouble recognizing at first; add in character #1 making up names and life for #2 in her head............still not sure how I would rate it.  Hmmmm...............

Louise Penny's new book in the Gamache series came out yesterday.  Jan Karon's new book is either out or will be out very soon.

Handstitcher-I don't think I read that one.  I always have to start reading or see the cover of a book to remember.  I didn't know about the friendship.  I'll check for them.

I just started Bittersweet the newest China Bayles book.  Didn't get very far.  My grandchildren from Harrisburg area are here.  My DGD wants to make a dress for American Girl history doll.  We found a pattern from that period which thrilled her.  We have also been collecting different small items she can use in her movies that she makes with her dolls.  In the process of our discussions, she decided to make a needle case for the little sewing bits she found.  We ran out of time today.  We are having great fun.  My summer turned into people sewing which I also enjoy.

Yes, I enjoy both of Joan Hess' series, Claire Malloy and the Maggody books. Umfortunately the Malloy mysteries sold more, so her publisher wouldn't let her write any more Maggody books. Too bad! No wonder writers get so frustrated!

Joan Hess is a terrific writer...thanks for the info About the "mummy "...
Comment by handstitcher/IL on Monday
I like the Vicky Bliss series as well, Ellen. Did you ever read Mummy Dearest by Joan Hess? It's part of her Claire Malloy mystery series. Joan and Elizabeth Peters were good friends and took a trip to Egypt together. So Joan wrote a modern day book taking place in Egypt that has a descendent of Amelia Peabody in it. Not my favorite Claore Malloy, but I appreciated the references to the Amelia Peabody series.

Kathy,  I did read all the books except the second half of the second book.  Sorry for the confusion.  I love the series.  It's one of my all time favorites.  Did you read all her other novel.  I also love the Vicky Bliss stories.

Ellen, I want to encourage you to read all of Amelia Peabiody books by Elizabeth Peters!..they are fabulous!..I have read them all and try to read in sequence since some characters over lap in the other books...I did have to keep tract of the characters on paper because of their evil deeds...exciting reading!!..there are a lot of books!

Thanks, Amanda.  I'll put "Ruth" on the list. 

I've been thinking about rereading Amelia Peabody again, especially the first ones. I stopped reading the second one when she was shut up in the tomb.  I get claustrophobia and just couldn't continue to read. Maybe should try again on that one.

Train girl sounds like too much for me.  My DD was reading one like that for a book group and she told me she wished the author just would tell her what happened.

I recently read all the Anne of Green Gables books that the library had.  It's nice to read a story about people trying to do their best through the struggles in life that has all the appropriate parts in the right places.

Ellen, I think I would have to recommend, Drowning Ruth, as it is hard to put down, and I am glad to have read it. I have had it for awhile and the cover and information just kept calling me in. It was well written, even if the switching time back and forth was a bit hard to follow at first.

Sounds kind of strange, Carol, good luck, hope it improves.

I only read one of Laura Ingall's Wilder's books when I was young, I want to go back and read them all. I feel like I can appreciate them more now. I don't remember a time when I wasn't in love with books, I remember going to the library when I was very little and the first place i always went was the discard box. They had books that had pages torn or colored in and  they were only 10 cents. I loved that I could have the books and that they would be mine forever. I still have a couple of my very favorite from the discard box.

    I didn't listen to them originally as I wasn't born, yet, but I found online a recording from the old Sherlock and Watson radio program with Nigel Bruce and Basil Rathbone. It was fantastic. I wish they would bring those back.
