Spring is finally here and what a glorious spring it has turned out to be. I have to admit spring got off to a slow start. However once it kicked in everything burst into bloom. Spring sprung just when I needed it.
My favorite book for this month is a spark of light by Jodi Picoult. She always, or at least very often, writes about what is current in today’s world. This book certainly is that. A women’s health care shooting in the south opens this book. As you are carried slowly backward through the day, the back stories of the people involved are unraveled. This is kind of a hard book to read but Jodi does a good job of explaining how everyone takes their side in this heart felt issue.
Crimson Lake by Candice Fox Is an Australian mystery that is really three mysteries in one story. I will search for other books by this author. Trust me; you won’t have trouble getting lost in this book. The two lead characters are a little on the odd but lovable side.
As you probably have figured out by now, I am a huge fan of historic fiction. House of gold by Natasha Solomons Takes place in the years leading up to and including World War 1. Usually you don’t find that snappy, almost sarcastic kind of writing in this type of book. Somehow it all works. A Jewish European Jewish banking family has its fingers in all things financial. However, will the family and its dynasty make it through the war?
