CarolineFromConcord and 3 other people liked Francesca Forrest's review of Here:
Here by Richard McGuire
"An acquaintance recommended this, and it was on display at the library, so I took it out. I liked the idea, but felt the execution fell short of what it might have been. For the 20th and 21st century years, the images referenced period touchstones..." Read more of this review »
Breath of Stone by Blair MacGregor
"Excellent sequel to Sand of Bone, goes in deep on exactly the thing that interests me most--the intersection of devotion/love and power/control in a relationship between a (near) god and an ordinary human, and how a relationship of mutual dependen..." Read more of this review »
Your Life in My Hands by Rachel Clarke
"Telling it as it is. A brave decision and presented with the clarity of a well researched journalist with the dedication & soul of a doctor living on top of this unexploded bomb. Rings so many bells for me...I worked in NHS admin for 15 years..." Read more of this review »
The Whole Fromage by Kathe Lison
"This is my idea of a perfect nightstand book -- a well-written, geeky volume that doesn't hook me on plot, so I can read happily in the company of an intelligent mind until I'm drowsy enough to naturally fall asleep. Even better if the book transp..." Read more of this review »

River of Heaven by Lee  Martin
" I do enjoy your reviews, Tracy. I may think I'm not going to read the book, but I'm really glad to know about it from someone like you. I feel the sam ...more "

Strip Jack by Ian Rankin
Rate this book
Clear rating
A disappointing novel from a mystery writer I usually love. The bristly Edinburgh detective John Rebus is not drawn with Ian Rankin's typical insight and wit. The humor consists of lame puns. And there are way too many potential perps, exotic but sup ...more

Homesick by Jean Fritz
Rate this book
Clear rating
Jean Fritz wrote biographies and histories for children. In this book she describes her own life as the child of Americans living in China in the 1920s. Her memories create a rich sense of place, though tinged with a child's colonial biases.
