This book was either getting 1 star or 4 stars, depending on the final chapter. The author pulled it off tremendously. Phew!

If you can get over the cheesiness of the title, you'll LOVE this book! It's historical fiction about a famous Nashville horse plantation right after the Civil War. The perspective alternates between the wealthy inhabitants of the mansion with the ne ...more

Charles and Emma by Deborah Heiligman

Much better than a biology textbook. I learned a ton about evolution, genetics, history, and especially how Charles and Emma Darwin grappled with differing religious philosophies in their marriage. A very interesting and sweet read.

I just got this book from the library, John read over my shoulder for 2 pages, and we ended up reading the entire thing together. 390 pages (mostly read aloud, with accents) in 4 days says a lot about a book. My voice is on its way out, but it was wo ...more
