I liked the story of biology intertwined with a love story. It's been several years since I read it, having found it on my parents-in-laws' bookshelf.

This book was ok. A neighbor gave it to me as a quick read, which it was at only 209 pages. The protagonist is self-centered. Slightly entertaining, but she repeats herself too much. It did open my eyes as to the effects of poverty on someone.

The Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris

One of the best written books I've read in some time. I now regard the book of Psalms quite differently, after hearing this poet's take on it. For spiritual growth, it is wonderful. From a mental health perspective, open and honest.

This was a free book on the Friends of the Libary cart and I first thought it was a children's book. Wrong, but it is a quick read about life of a woman reporter for the Saturday Evening Post.
