I had company until Thursday and naturally routines were upended. I did manage to read a bit, and have a few new books to share.
I was late posting last weeks Salon, due to my company so maybe people didn't get to read about The Winds of Tara by Katherine Pinotti. (see last week). I received the book via airmail(expensive) this week and so far I like it. I plan to read it this week, so tune in next week.
I am reading Woman of a Thousand Secrets, by Barbara Wood, an Early Reviewer ARC for Library Thing. The story is about a girl named Tonina who was found by a couple unable to have children. She was floating in a basket on the sea. One day they decide it is time for her to leave their island, and this is when Tonina's adventures begin.
This week I also finished My Father's Paradise by Ariel Sabar. This was an Early Reviewer ARC for Library Thing. The review is on a previous post.
I also finished Far Above Rubies by Cynthia Polansky, who I met on Jacket Flap. What an amazing story she has written. Please read this book. You can read my review on a separate post her historical fiction narrative is based on the true story of an Auschwitz survivor. Far Above Rubies is a jewel of a book based on a exceptional gem of a women.
That's all for this week.
