The French Winemaker‘s Daughter was a fresh approach to historical fiction during WWII. Being able to imagine what legacies were stolen from the Jews in addition to the loss of human life was haunting.

I can‘t believe I‘ve never read this book before…

IndoorDame It‘s one of the ones I‘d love to read for the first time all over again! 2w
dabbe I haven't either. It's on my TBR for this year! 😀 2w
ImperfectCJ I read the series as a child because I watched (and loved) the miniseries with Megan Follows and Richard Farnsworth. Then I read it again with my kids, and found elements I'd not noticed as a child. I love books that have different significance at different stages of life! (We also took a family road trip to Prince Edward Island one year. I'm somewhat embarrassed when I do touristy things, but the trip was awesome!) 2w
Princess-Kingofkings @ImperfectCJ My daughter loves the series. In fact, when my Mama was dying in December, my daughter read to my Amon from her book. My mother did take a trip there years ago. It has been fun to text my daughter as I read. 2w

#WhatsNewWednesday Our family rescued Regi last week when his owner surrendered him. We are fostering him with the first option to adopt. Trust me ~ we will be adopting him. Regi will be 5 in October. He is smart and FULL of energy. I‘m learning from Jennie Allen in the tagged book to feel my feelings and having Regi in my life has brought pure joy and happiness to my days with a bit of longing added in when I have to go to work and leave him.

The British Booksellers | Kristy Cambron

The British Booksellers is a story of friendship and misunderstanding set around World War I & II. I learned many details about how the war affected England that were fascinating. The introduction of the Land Girls was my favorite. I most enjoyed watching the early friendship develop between Amos and Charlotte. Each of the primary characters showed kindness and compassion towards others but struggled with giving themselves the same understanding.

An annual adventure with a high school friend ~ meeting between homes in Michigan & Indiana. Yesterday was opening day for the 100+ year old carousel. The middle horse in the top photo was carved by the original creator‘s son and found in Michigan. My 6 hour round trip drive 😳 was made bearable by listening to the tagged book.

TheBookHippie I use a scale for my water and coffee 🤣I grind my coffee -use a kettle I set temp according to the brew I‘m brewing.

The Paris Gown: A Novel | Christine Wells

Pickpick

This charming story explored fashion, food, and true friendship. Paris in the 1950‘s is the idyllic place for three friends to launch their new lives after attending a cookery school that was intended to prepare them for marriage.

Claire, Gina, & Margot are soon living contrasting lives around the world while trying to keep in touch. They get back together by choice and chance.


Princess-Kingofkings Although their education didn‘t seem to prepare them for life outside of marriage, their true friendship is what carries them thru struggles, disagreements, and ultimately encourages them to live life lavishly.

Their friendship, how they remembered it and maintained it was my favorite part. It was clear that they made choices to preserve and grow their bond.

1mo
Princess-Kingofkings I would have enjoyed reading a bit more about the relationships with the men in their lives but then that may have distracted from the women‘s friendship. Instead, I was able to develop a bit of history using what was shared.

Historical Fiction lovers will get a taste of Dior fashion from the gorgeous descriptions of dresses. Foodies will be able to almost taste the meals and wine shared among friends.

#SundayFunday My daughter & I had this same conversation via text yesterday. She bought a copy of the tagged book for 25 cents. I have 4 copies of this book. While living in Japan in 1990, my husband was sent to the Gulf War. The neighborhood women, where I taught English to 5 Japanese pre-schoolers, made these 1000 paper cranes while praying for my husband. It is my most prized possession & my daughter knows it will be passed on to her. 🗾

One of the reasons I buy books by authors who are less known from Amazon is so that I can patronize the author and get my reviews published. While serving on Mesu Andrews‘s team, we experienced troubles with reviews being accepted because the reviewers weren‘t buying the books or leaving reviews for other items on Amazon. It‘s all a process.

I served as a coordinator for Mesu Andrews. I had the opportunity to host her in my home for a conference, drive her to Indiana, & meet her Mama. When this photo was taken she was speaking at a Ladies Retreat. She invited me as her guest at a time I couldn‘t afford an experience like that. She is a real woman with needs, health struggles & a heart for obeying God to love others. This is my favorite book of hers though not usually chosen by others.

my first review in several years ~ fellow Littens … These Tangled Threads is a yarn about 3 co-workers who experience struggles and make decisions that hurt each other. Ultimately, they each have to decide whether to trust and work together or hold on to fear and bitterness. ⬇️

Princess-Kingofkings I loved the details of setting up the loom and the vivid fabric descriptions. Being able to hear the story from 3 different viewpoints allowed me to see their hearts. The extra gift of learning about Biltmore Estate has left me dreaming of a future vacation destination.⬇️ 2mo
Princess-Kingofkings Because the timeframes went back and forth, even though each chapter heading was clear, I found it difficult to keep track. I might need to prepare a timeline to look at next time I read the book.⬇️ 2mo
Princess-Kingofkings Lovers of historical fiction and readers who adore Appalachia will find the scenery described and places visited engaging. For those who appreciate observing the characters make mistakes and slowly mature, you will be rewarded for allowing Arthur, Lorna, & Gentry to walk out their struggles. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 2mo

I was a bit disappointed with the seemingly large selection of books outside this elementary school. Many of these books were cast off classroom books. If we want kids to enjoy reading, we need to offer them free books that are exciting. I chose this book because my 17 year old son loved the Look and Find books so this one will go in my home. library for the grandkids.
