It isn‘t the tagged book (which is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read), but it came in today‘s mail and I have 5 hot minutes to myself to read it. Laundry and dishwasher both spinning for the umpteenth time today, both kids playing outside with a neighbor kid in lovely 56 degree weather.

1. Pilgrims, right?
2. Accompanying my children to Junior Scientist Day at my spouse's workplace. I suspect it was primarily an excuse for the grown-up scientists to play, which helped make it super awesome!
3. Leftovers and an early bedtime.
4. Nine living, two deceased.
5. On it!

An extraordinary book on the beginnings of America. A real eye opener. Fascinating not a dry text book at all. Wonderful, wonderful!

This gets a pick but just barely. It‘s set in Plymouth in 1873 and current day. The main character, Hester, is a teen trying to undo a curse on her family that condemns the women to die in childbirth. She meets & becomes drawn to mysterious Ezra.

There was good historical detail, which I liked. I didn‘t believe the chemistry between Hester & Ezra though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

It seems appropriate to follow up A Kingdom Strange with Mayflower. Both authors give full histories of England‘s takeover of Native American lands, even the ugly, selfish parts.

SamAnne I‘ve read Mayflower but have not hear of Kingdom Strange. Looking it up now. 12mo
LibrarianChels @SamAnne it was a very quick read! 11mo

The story of the Pilgrims does not end with the First Thanksgiving; instead, it is a fifty-five-year epic that is at once tragic and heroic. Philbrick is an absolute master of his craft, and this book is no exception. The story related in Mayflower is an electrifying account that answers a supremely loaded question: How did it all begin?

Bradleygirl Ooh, I remember listening to this one! 12mo

1. Maybe read minds? I'm torn.
2. Mayflower, tagged. Very good.
3. To not argue with fools on the internet, to try to be kind to someone every day, and to thin down the stuff in my home (books not included 😉)
4. Designated Survivor, recommended by a friend. It's ok, but it's no West Wing.
5. I'm on it!
