  • Reader Review: "The Sweetness of Water"
    by audrey geer (PA): This book is extraordinary! As one who often reads historical fiction, I can say that it is rare to have characters so fully drawn. The post-Civil War South was a brutal place and the lives of everyone were disrupted. This book…

  • Reader Review: "It Ends with Us"
    by Kathi White (SEDALIA): Several months ago I read Verity. Didn't like it. I thought it bordered on soft porn. I had forgotten that Colleen Hoover was its author, but had inadvertently bought It Ends with Us. I found the first third of this book to…

    by Bedur Alshrif (Towson): While reading Beloved, I found myself enjoying Morrison's eloquence. Although the book is set in the 1800s, I found myself understanding it easily after I got the timelines. She drew me in and made my experience what the ch…
