House Rules by Jodi Picoult
I have read several Jodi Picoult books in the last few months. I have found that she always has an unexpected twist at the end. Now either I am getting good at solving mysteries, or she didn’t do as good a job of hiding things (I prefer to think that I am getting better at sleuthing) . Don’t get me wrong, I liked the book, but I figured out how it was going to end about half way through the book.
I was watching the Tour de France this morning and had to mention an audiobook I was fortunate to listen to and wanted to let you know about it.
With all of that is going on right now with this famous race, you must read this inspiring story about Gino Bartali and his famous feat as a cyclist and how he along with many others saved the lives of countless Jews during WW11.
His Tour De France feats are amazing in and of themselves, but what he accomplished during the war is even more amazing.
Jdl has this available in audio book format.
With reluctance, I picked up Tamar Myers' The Witch Doctor's Wife to give her writing a second chance. The first in a four book series based in 1950's Belgian Congo, I was pleasantly surprised right away by the differences between this book and Myers' silly Pennsylvania Dutch series.
