The Roots of the Olive Tree was pretty good except the ending. It was like she just got tired of writing the story and bailed. The answers to the mysteries were never given and it just left you wondering what the heck happened so I absolutely do not recommend it. A waste of reading time!
I am almost done reading Anne of Green Gables, I hadn't read it before and I am loving it. I watched the new show of it on Netflix and decided to read the book. It is a good show and book.
Hope you all have had some time to read some new things!

I have read quite a few Fern Michaels books, Vilma, and they are good.
I am reading the latest Gamache book by Louise Penny. It is great so far. I am listening to The Roots of the Olive Tree by Courtney Miller Santo. It has been very interesting, and i think many of you would enjoy it.
Happy reading everyone!

I have been on the road and have listened to 2 books. 

Tis by Frank McCourt.  This is the second book after Angela's Ashes.  it picked from when he arrived in New York at the age of 18 years old until his retirement from being a teacher.  The next book is Teacher Man. 

Pretty Woman by Fern Michaels, fiction and small book, only 4 CDs.  I need to check out her other books. 

Funny how my husband will tell me that he rather drive in a quiet car but he really gets into the story of the book we are listening.

Great ideas, Carol! 

I just heard of another book that looks very interesting, but sad, maybe too sad for me. It is called The Radium Girls by Kate Moore. Has anyone on here read that one?

Kathy, I may have already suggested some of these but here's a few I've enjoyed:

Orphan #8 by Kim van Alkemade

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

The Lacemakers of Glenmara by Heather Barbieri

The Daring Ladies of Lowell by Kate Alcott

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Most not set in the most joyful periods of history but all page turners.

Oh dear Kathy! No peeking! :0) Just kidding! I don't peek in mysteries or I wouldn't bother to finish the book. Did you read the Maisie Dodd historical mysteries by Jacqueline Winspear? They are intense and fascinating, in my opinion. I can't think of any other historical books to recommend right now, but I will try and think on it.

I am enjoying the Mary Kay Andrews books. They are pretty light, what my Mom calls "fluff" books, but that is what I am feeling like I need right now.  I did finish a very interesting book called " The Explorer's Guild; Volume 1 The Passage to Shambala by Jon Baird and Kevin Costner. It was a bit more violent than I care for, but the story and pacing were very exciting and page tunring, although I have to admit I did not understand the ending and I am bugging my brother to read it so I can discus it with him!

Good Morning Ladies..I have been reading along but not writing...taking care of dear hubby John has become almost full time now..he is still sleeping, so I have some extra time...I am reading a easy, light book by Ann Granger,called the "Companion..1850" of course it is a mystery (now, if I could just stop looking at the end of the book for the murderer!!!..there, you can see it drives me crazy, when the book gets too wordy, continue going over the clues!..I am more patient taking out unwanted stitches out if my quilts!...I am ready to start a historical novel...do you gals have any suggestions?

I have seen her books at my library, but have never read them.  Will have to give them a try Amanda. 

Comment by Amanda Best on April 17, 2017 at 1:32am

That sounds really good, Janet! 

I found an new, (to me), author Mary Kay Andrews. Her novels are fun and light reading. I have liked the first two I have read. Ladies Night and Every Crooked Nanny.
