The Accidental Mother – Rowan Coleman (3.5/5)

The Help – Kathryn Stockett (4.5/5)


The Murderer’s Daughters (3.5/5)

Sarah’s Key – Tatiana de Rosnay (4.5/5)
Great book! Any book that has me giving up sleep and sitting in the driveway to listen just a bit more is a winner for me! Tough read as is any book about the Holocaust. I shed a tear or two! I was unaware of Frances involvement in the round up of the French Jews. Be it a story about the holocaust, slavery, child abuse or Jim Crow Laws I can never understand how one human could have such disregard for another human.

The Wrong Mother – Sophie Hannah (3/5)
This book had so much potential. There were parts that were a real page turner, but other parts dragged on. One thing that really stuck out to me was I didn’t really have the feeling of knowing the characters. I think the character development was lacking. Way too many detectives with names that start with a S. … I still don’t know how the detectives figured out the crime based on what they really knew. Seemed like a bit of a reach. But I finished the book……and thought it was an average read.

The Promised World – Lisa Tucker (4/5)

Good book, story of a set of twins who had a difficult childhood. (why do I keep reading about child abuse?)


The Solace of Leaving Early – Haven Kimmel (3/5)

The Blue Notebook – James A Levine (DID NOT FINISH)
About homeless children in Mumbai and their lives as child prostitutes. I just could not read about the neglect and abuse of these children. I had to stop reading when I was half done with the book.
