An instant New York Times bestseller!
"This novel was written BEFORE "To Kill A Mockingbird." You will notice some familiar characters and some new ones. Harper Lee's insights from the 1950's are very current for some of the racial inequalities going on in today's society. Very poignant! A worthwhile read!"
"Cow Tom is a Black Creek native American who has such a depth of empathy for all he meets that his life is a continuous battle to do good. His ability to learn languages affords him an unusual advantage... or disadvantage!...to witness the early U.S. government's negotiations with Indian treaties. As Native Americans are "relocated," Cow Tom's family and loved ones suffer severe hardships as they attempt to keep the family together on their farms. When finally freed form slavery and given rights as Native Americans, Cow Tom begins to believe that his granddaughter, Rose, may see his dreams come to fruition. Historical Fiction at it's best!
"Straight form the headlines! CIA (hacking) investigating our elected officials. Hackers conference in Las Vegas with the Wall of Sheep showing REAL TIME hacking of ANY electric technology! Believe it and WEEP!
"When Grandmother Addie Baum recounts her life to her Granddaughter, life in Boston as a young Jewish girl in the 1900's comes to life. The coming of age for both Grandmother & Granddaughter is a sweet - refreshing read."
" This is a beautifully crafted story of a marriage and family. Me. Nicholls has created characters with such depth and complexity. I enjoyed the way the author was able to combine humor with serious issues of relationships and parenting. This book hits high notes in every aspect! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
"We meet Weldon Holland, first as a young boy, captivated by Bonnie & Clyde, then follow him through the conditions of WWII as he earns a hero's status, including the rescue of a woman from a Nazi death camp. Post-war Weldon and his war buddy commercialize the welding technique that revolutionizes oil drilling in TX, OK and LA. Shakespeare would be envious of the descriptive paragraphs Burke writes as we accompany Weldon from boy, to war hero, to husband. In his evolving story he encounters evil that rivals his horrors of WWII."
"The PERFECT beach read! Stephanie Plum continues the see-saw decision about Ranger (stud supreme) and Morelli (cop stud supreme) in this fun read. Car fires and apartment fires are nothing new for Stephanie but add in dogs and a very short Randy Biggs as apartment guests; we can say the story is full of interesting characters. As an extra bonus, Grandma Mazur has a bucket list she is determined to complete!"
"Solving a 50+ year old case plus new clues that might solve the case of two former partners would be a feather in Carl Mørck + Department Q's hat! If Carl didn't have to contend with his office helpers - or - maybe it is because of them that he might climb out of the basement & Department Q.
