a ghost story, a love story

More Than You Know: A Novel - book cover picture

Beth Gutcheon's "More than you Know" is a cuddle-up read for wintertime eves. Part love story, part ghost story, featuring a parallel plot told in flashbacks that eventually links to the present, Gutcheon's tale will charm you and keep you turning pages late into the evening. The book is seemlessly woven, filled with delicate turnings and impressions. She writes especially well of her narrator's first love, of the days of passion and sweetness that the 17 year old girl found with a boy "from the wrong side of the tracks" in the small Maine village which is the setting for the book. Highly recommended, "More than You Know" should propel the author into a wide readership.

Essential reading for all eighteenth-century historians

Book title: The Rise of the Great Powers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Rise of the Great Powers - book cover picture

Despite its age, The Rise of the Great Powers remains one of the best overviews of eighteenth-century European diplomatic history. Detailed enough for students, yet simple enough for those with no prior knowledge of the period, it charts the development of the European 'balance of power' from the end of the Thirty Years' War to the beginning of the Pax Britainica. The depth of McKay and Scott's uderstanding of such a complex subject is awesome, and they combine to produce a thoroughly enjoyable and informative book.

"The Da Vinci Code" is a multi-layered novel laced with amazing historical and fictional puzzles. The fast paced tale blends several of histories critical discoveries and controversial conspiracies into a great story.

Since the novel is based on credible icons and traditions including current events, the suspense pulls the reader into a web of realistic mystery.

Overall the novel is excellent for any fan of the pseudo-realistic literary genre.

Thank you.

Complete Idiot's Guide to Perfect Marriage (The Complete Idiot's Guide) - book cover picture

As a married woman for almost 15 years, I considered myself blessed to have a good marriage. Having read this book upon the recommmendation of a close friend, I was amazed to find how much better a good thing can become. My husband and I enjoyed discussing the book and have adopted quite a few suggestions. This has resulted in us becoming even closer. Although some of the points seem elementary at first glance, we were surprised that we had never thought of them ourselves. A very special thanks for the tips on how to deal with my in-laws.

Taking Charge When You're Not in Control - book cover picture

I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Wiklund after she gave a keynote speech at an advising conference in California. Even though I don't buy "self-help" books anymore, I spontaneously bought this one "for the office staff", I thought to myself. She was there at the table, a woman with great magnetic charm and compassion, and we chatted for a moment. I left with the feeling of a subtle "blessing" for having come into contact with her. After I returned home from the conference, I picked the book up to give it a glance or two before taking it to the office. I could not put it down! I cannot think of anyone who would not gain a greater insight into human relations and personal experience by reading this book. A must.

Not one for historical romance...

Outlander - book cover picture

Not one for historical romance, this novel grabbed me and I read this and the subsequent three novels all in one month. I can't remember the last time I sequestered myself in my room, reading up to 6 hours a day. I even irritated (oops and neglected) my family with my passion for these books. Although there is some violence, especially with "women's issues", they fit the violent times in which the novel was placed. Claire is a spunky, no-nonsense person who gets lost in a fantasy... what an escape... for Claire as well as for me!! I've passed the series on to my ENGLISH mother-in-law, who is now a fan as well!

Girl With a Pearl Earring - book cover picture

What an exquisite novel! Deceptively simple in the telling, GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING is told from the perspective of a serving girl in the house of Vermeer, who becomes both model and muse. Chevalier captures the very quality of a Vermeer painting in her writing, and vividly brings the Delft of the artist's time to life in this breathtaking first novel. A lovely, lyrical tale of love and art. Don't miss it!

The Hobbit - book cover picture

AWESOME book!! Originally Tolkien wrote it for his children, now everyone of every age loves it. I don't want to spoil the story, other than it is a really good treasure hunt. If you're stuck on which edition to get, I'd suggest getting the 'classic' one with Tolkien's full-color paintings included. (It's nice and cool, and may be worth something down the road.) On the cover it shows his drawings of the mountains, forest, etc... Enough of that, I just hope they'll adapt this as a movie... (crosses fingers)

Adventures of a Bystander - book cover picture

The Chinese have a proverb "first we have people who can recognise good horses, then we can have 1000-mile horses", suggesting wonderful things are everywhere, it only takes one who can appreciate wonders.Drucker, in his unlikely autobiography, introduced some interesting and unforgettable characters at his times, entertains, educates and empowers us to think there are always equally interesting and unforgettable souls at our times, and probably at all times.An enjoyable experience to have read this book, and more enjoyable experience when we can learn from him the passion and depth in appreciate people around us.highly recommended.
