Grab a seat…with your feet in the water, the sun on your back OR curled up in AC comfort OR in front of a fire. It’s
Book Club time!
I’ve been reading…
Often I have a seasonal reading theme, whether I begin with one or not. I just like reading things that build on each other, complement each other, and keep my brain in the same neighbor for a while. This summer’s theme turned out to be:
Books set in Plymouth by
Local Authors who I know.
How’s THAT for a theme?
It started this spring with ROBERT KNOX
Which is about Bartolomeo Vanzetti, who lived in Plymouth – just up the road from where I live now – and early 20th century immigration issues and the labor movement and…well, you’ll have to read it find out more….
And then I heard that PETER TRENOUTH had a book out….
We worked together decades ago and have kept off and on in touch. This is a story that is heart wrenching, heartwarming and heartfelt and a bunch of other heart and flowers terms that are making me sound cliché instead of must read.
Judith Campbell and the Holy Mysteries
Olympia Brown / Holy Mysteries series
There’s the story, the great people we meet, who grow and change and don’t change, revealing a little more of themselves in each volume AND there’s the moral AND the mystery AND the great food. I’m thinking Olympia Brown is a Leo, because she’s rather fond of ginger. I’ve offered to be a recipe tester for the companion cookbook…..
It’s been a summer to connect and re-connect with old friends and read great books with familiar locations and have friendly books on the shelves.
