My newest read, from Harper:
Genre: literary fiction
I have just started this book and it has me in tears already. She is such a good writer. I am eager to see where this story of an heirloom house occupied by two families in different time periods will lead. It begins in the present day with a run down house the contractor recommends demolishing.The novel goes back to the house in an earlier time, the 1870s, when life and politics was just as unpredictable and changing as today.
I am also reading some library books:
A man wakes up in a rehabilitation home or hospital, unable to remember his past except in small flashbacks. He determines that he was born in 1900 but when he finds a bottle with his medication saying the pills' expiration date is 1999, he has to reassess what he believes about himself. The book slowly shows the aviator remembering bits of his past, or is it his past? Even though these events may have happened before he was even born? I am hooked on this story and where it might possibly go.
And a memoir:
Genre: thriller, crime fiction
I started this library book after my hubby started reading again and I borrowed it for him. Fool Me Once is a captivating thriller, very suspenseful at the end, with twists that you can't see coming. Some of the themes include PTSD from combat during overseas duty, corruption among the wealthy at home, motherhood, and reliable friendship between two people who served together in the military. I gave this 4.5 stars.
