BOOK REVIEW: A Beautiful, Terrible Thing by Jen Waite

I liked this book because it's raw and honest. In A Beautiful, Terrible Thing, the author is telling a tale as old as time: she marries a man who betrays her. The story here, though, is the spectacular manner in which this is done. About 3/4 through it I considered stopping. It was a little … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: A Beautiful, Terrible Thing by Jen Waite

BOOK REVIEW: ANGEL OF EVENTIDE by Elle Powers

I was pulled right in to the conversation between the angel and the woman at the outset of the book. But, is it an angel? Who is this woman?  I have many questions and so I press on, intensely interested in how the answers would they reveal themselves. This is not only a story of compassion; … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: ANGEL OF EVENTIDE by Elle Powers

BOOK REVIEW: The Story Of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

I just closed this book and I have tears streaming down my face. Usually, I wouldn't care for a book that left me in this emotional state. This book was different, however.

BOOK REVIEW: Informed Consent: Critical Truths Essential to Your Health and to the Health of Future Generations by Michele Stanford, M.Ed., CHC

I began to read Michele’s story and as a woman, my heart was filled with compassion and empathy for her and the situation she was in. As an RN, my heart was filled with rage for how this patient was treated by her physician! Michele was not defined by her circumstances, however. Rather, she decided … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Informed Consent: Critical Truths Essential to Your Health and to the Health of Future Generations by Michele Stanford, M.Ed., CHC

BOOK REVIEW: Come Running When I Call by Kimberly Sue McGlaughlin

I met the author, Kim, when I first started going to the Community Market of the Kennebunks on Saturdays. I just finished reading her book, Come Running When I Call, a memoir about a girl and her horse. You know, the horse. But don't think you have to be a girl who loves horses to enjoy this book--although … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Come Running When I Call by Kimberly Sue McGlaughlin

Poetic license, people! Heard of it?

I have been reading and reviewing books for years. Years. I haven't loved all of them, but with only one (to my knowledge) notable exception*, I was not ever unkind to the author in my review. If I liked or loved a book, I said so. If I didn't, then I moved on. Just because … Continue reading Poetic license, people! Heard of it?

Book Review

Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead My rating: 5 of 5 stars I thought that this book was going to be about a wedding, but it's really about a man's midlife crisis. Okay, it's also about intimate relationships of all kinds. I ended up really liking this book anyway. I love the writing, the metaphors, and … Continue reading Book Review
