There is no way I can objectively write a review of Go Set A Warchman, the perhaps first draft of Mockingbird. I am a proud To Kill A Mockingbird fan - both the book & the film - and the author.
But if Watchman had been published first, I'm prett

"I can't bring myself to rate or write a review of GSAW. I have loved To Kill A Mockingbird for so many years. I tried to read GSAW on its own merits and not compare and found I'm just too biased. I'm glad I read it and understand the mixed reactio..." Read more of this review »

"I didn’t so much read this novel about early aviator Beryl Markham as feel it, being swept up into the wild, diverse world of colonial Africa every time I opened the book. Normally I much prefer biography to any fictionalized version of a real per..." Read more of this review »

Circling the Sun by Paula McLain
"Out of Africa is a favorite movie in my house. Robert Redford is at his best as Denys Fitch Hatton, and I do a mean imitation of Meryl Streep's awfully accented, "I had a farm in Africa." Really. So when I learned that this book is in the same Ken..." Read more of this review »

I rarely watched Murphy Brown, didn't read Knock Wood and mostly assumed Candice Bergen was playing herself in films such as Miss Congeniality and Sweet Home Alabama. But I loved this book. I feel like I got lucky and was invited to a house party whe ...more

What a fantastic collection of six stories of Hawaii. Not the Waikiki, Kapiolani, Poipu - pick your favorite tourist beach Hawaii (which is charming but not authentic I feel certain) but the Hawaii of its people who live in the houses and work the la ...more

I found this to be a compelling story based on three unlikely events. Part of the attraction perhaps is that the New Jersey setting was familiar and the characters felt like people I might have known. The author did a fantastic job of bringing the ea ...more
