A wonderful work of historical fiction! This book was passed around by several staff members and enjoyed by all! This novel goes back in forth in time and you get to experience Spain and London in these different time periods. The characters themselves are well drawn and I love how art is what binds them together.
My son's girlfriend passed this on to me recently and am so glad she did. This girl can write! She is wonderfully imaginative and spins a classic fairy tale into a story about race and relationships. I also want to read her short story collection that came out recently and Mr. Fox.
This is my second time around reading this incredible book. My Mom and I decided to finally visit the Pearl Buck House (would highly recommend!) so I thought it would be a good time to refresh my memory. This book is timeless and says so much about society in general, I love the descriptions of the beloved land and the relationships and how they are affected by the time period and culture. It always makes me want to get as close to nature as possible.
I really can't believe I had never read Michael Chabon before this novel. He is such a good writer and has turned a personal story into a well crafted work of fiction. You will root for his grandfather and all his escapades, gush over his love for his wife and want to turn the page and see what happens next. I plan to read The Adventures of Cavalier and Clay next!
Lent to me by a new friend, this book is a little gem. The author uses sailing as a metaphor for life while passing on his personal experiences and sharing his coming of age story. I love to be at the beach and be near the water so I enjoyed every last description!
One night we convened at book club and brought with us books that we felt were memorable and wanted to share. My friend, Jean, brought this one and urged me to read it. I love a good Irish author and was enamoured with this cast of characters that all live near a beautiful lake and intersect one anothers lives. So simple but also says so much about what is truly important.
This book is for art lovers and those that are drawn to all aspects of creativity and living outside the box. On the other hand it is a story of friendship, wanting what you do not have and its costs and the price you pay for disfunction.
This is the perfect book to pick up and receive inspiration for the New Year! It has beautiful photos and quotes and ideas for being more mindful. Having done yoga for 15 years I am always trying to find more ways to be this way and stay focused on the present moment. I have found myself really paying attention when I am taking a walk or out in nature. There is always peacefulness to be found.
