I found this book interesting and illuminating -- and I finally understand why she wrote only one book.

I'm in two book clubs and everybody loved this book. It's based on the real-life journals of the author's great-grandmother and her life in the Arizona Terrorities. What a woman! And what a love story. It's hard to believe that a life that primitive ...more

This is for the serious history reader although the style is accessible and interesting. It confirmed my belief that Lincoln was our greatest president. Very detailed but written by a pro; the reader is in good hands.

Loved this love story and its quirky premise. One of the few books I've ever re-read (who has time for that?). So many good questions: Would you want to know how and when your life was going to end? Would you tell your significant other? If you had r ...more

This book left me breathless when I first read it as a teenager and it was just as good when my book club re-read it two years ago. In 2008 it will be our Big Read community book. Atticus showed a kind of courage and integrity that I hadn't recognize ...more
