"The thing about Mama was she'd never tell you how she felt. When she was feeling bad she'd just go on with her work, washing dishes or peeling taters, or mopping the floor, and I'd know she was feeling pretty low, but she wouldn't say nothing." North Carolina reading

Sunday reading. Catching up on a mystery series. Love it when I know I still have several books to go.

Blueberry The last few days I keep hearing about Louise Penny. She must be really good. 2y
pmg227 I have enjoyed the series for the most part. Having a familiar cast of quirky characters keeps me coming back. 2y

I'm an armchair traveler. I enjoy reading about others hiking the Appalachian Trail without any desire to follow in their footsteps.

Loving this book. A woman who married a fisherman in Alaska tells of her experiences & compares them to some of the stories of Jesus and the men of Galilee. He is the one from Job who "tramples down the wave of the sea."

I saw this at my local library & was quite amused. When librarians think characters are real people.

Enjoying my second book by this Scottish author. When a woman loses her husband, who apparently gambled away all their money, she takes a teaching position in the Scottish Highlands; far from the city life they've always known. Love her characters & the sense of being in a different time & place.

Beautiful book. Sad, funny, & full of every human emotion. Perfect reminder that race & immigration are not new topics.

Into Temptation | Penny Vincenzi

I love her books but this one has a character that makes me need to put the book away until I can calm down. The character I would love to kill!
