Woman with a Gun: A Novel | Phillip Margolin

#MOvember
When I think of a gun or #Revolver I almost always associate it with this book which was written around an photo (like the one on the cover) that the author found hanging on a wall in a diner in Georgia.

Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was a famous Confederate general during the US Civil War. Arguably, his death in 1863 was a crucial blow to the Confederacy; it happened prior to the battle of Gettysburg, and the lack of his knowledge in part led to the Confederacy‘s defeat.

Outside of war, Jackson was a fanatic. He was a teacher, a preacher, but also deeply loyal and a task master. This is one of many bios about him. #papadontpreach #Movember

Jim Jones was the first cult leader I learned about in school, and was my first idea for this prompt although I couldn't remember his name at the beginning. (I had to Google 'cult leader who killed members using poisoned juice')

I haven‘t read this book yet, but a search on the book cover photo of the woman is Stagecoach Mary who carried a rifle and a #revolver to protect and deliver the postal mail on her route during the Wild West days.

#MOvember Poor Lilli, pregnant, unmarried and alone she decides she‘s going to keep her baby. That‘s not easy 1883! I thought I would love this book, but the timing was off for me. Book is in hibernation but I hope to try again. #PapaDontPreach

TrishB There are a lot of hibernating books on Litsy 😁 (edited) 3h
Cinfhen Yup!!! But that‘s ok, books need to rest too!! @TrishB (edited) 3h

Holding On to Zoe | George Ella Lyon
post image

After sixteen-year-old Jules has her baby, Zoe, it doesn't matter anymore that her mother thinks she's a drama queen, or that her father left them years ago, or even that Zoe's father is gone, too. She and her baby make a family now.

🎶but I made up my mind, I‘m keeping my baby🎶

britt_brooke @emz711 Haunting is the perfect way to describe this. 8h
Cinfhen I‘ve heard this book is excellent/ it was one of my first add-ons to Litsy 😁 7h
Stevenjohntait I'm reading it now. First off, the author has done an amazing job but I am finding it a slog. Possibly because I'm reading it on my phone 4h
britt_brooke @Cinfhen It is! I read it earlier this year. Very tough, but fantastic. now
britt_brooke @Stevenjohntait Maybe it‘s slow-going because of the subject matter. I had to take it in smaller doses that usual because it‘s mentally exhausting. It‘s so good, though! now
