The Movie was also good....loved the book. Siddalee Walker needs her mother's help with a play she's writing about women's friendships, so Vivi sends her the letters, photos, journals, and souvenirs from the Ya-Ya sisterhood. This group of girlfriends was wild and clever -- and stuck in a small town where they were expected to raise babies not Cain.

This book/movie inspired an annual YaYa sleepover with my mom, her best friend and the three grown daughters. Creating great memories!

The Red Tent- Anita Diamant
Book Club, Books Worth Reading, Anita Diamant, Books I Ve, Favorite Books, Red Tent, Good Books, Time Favorite, Fiction Book
A MUST READ!!! The Red Tent retells the story of Dinah, which is found in the Biblical book of Genesis, Chapter 34. It is an amazing historical fiction book!
The Red Tent, Anita Diamant Mom's All Saints book club read this, I borrowed it, and then GAB read it. "Daughters carry their mother's stories; I had four mothers."
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant Everytime I read it, I am reminded of the importance of being a woman.
'The Red Tent' by Anita Diamant. Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that are about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons.Told in Dinah's voice, this novel reveals the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood-the world of the red tent.Deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of Biblical women's society.
The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant This is my all time favorite book!
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant - One of my faves of all time!
Such a good book by Anita Diamant

Half Broke Horses...pretty good read but in my opinion The Glass Castle is better. (Jeannette Walls)
Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel - Loved it. Jeanette Walls is an amazing writer. If you haven't read "The Glass Castle", you've missed a great one.
Half Broke Horses is a fun, honest book. It is based on truth, but the author, Jeannette Walls, classified it as fiction since it is the story of her grandma and she couldn't verify it.
Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel Great book - read this after "The Glass Castle"
Equally as fantastic as the sequel, The Glass Castle (my all-time favorite book!)
Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel - a lovely prequel to The Glass Castle
Half Broke Horses. Great book, especially if you liked The Glass Castle !
"Sequel" to The Glass Castle, which was excellent. On my "to read" list.
Book Club selection 2011-2012 Half Broke Horses
In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys—best friends—are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy’s mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn’t believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God’s instrument. What happens to Owen, after that 1953 foul ball, is extraordinary and terrifying.
My favorite by John Irving ... "A Prayer for Owen Meany"

The Glass Castle: a Memoir / Jeannette Walls. A stunning and life-affirming memoir about surviving a willfully impoverished, eccentric and severely misguided family. The child of an alcoholic father and an eccentric artist mother discusses her family's nomadic upbringing, during which she and her siblings fended for themselves while their parents outmaneuvered bill collectors and the authorities.
"The Glass Castle": A young girl grows up with an alcoholic father, brilliant, charismatic and destructive. Her mother, a free spirit, abhors domesticity and responsibility. It is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption within a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant.
The Glass Castle Jeannette Walls...Love love love this book. reaffirms im doing good as a parent
The Glass Castle. Jeannette Walls' true life story will make you laugh and cry on every page.
The Glass Castle - Jeannette Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were both their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary Walls had four children. In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and above all, how to embrace life fearlessly.
One of my favorite books. I can read it about once a year!
