Book review: ‘The Maid,’ by Kimberly Cutter

The Maid: A Novel of Joan of Arc, by Kimberly Cutter. This one I'm half way into. It's really good. Fascinating subject, vivid depiction of a brutal time in human history, and Cutter's portrayal of Joan is brilliant. My son asked about this one -- the cover shows Joan in armor -- and I told him the premise and started reading a few lines. "Keep reading," he said. The next day, he asked, "Can you read more of that book to me?"

Blackout and Doomsday Book, both by Connie Willis, promise adventures in time-traveling, science fiction and historical fiction by one of my favorite sci-fi authors. She's won big awards -- the Hugo and Nebula. I've enjoyed her other books tremendously and can't wait to dig into these. Only problem: which one to start with?

Review: Doomsday Book, Connie Willis

medievalbookworm.com

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens -- why is this one on my list? It's here because I like social realism, I was born in the East End of London, my husband has told me for many years that I'd like Dickens, and I feel unlearned because I've read so few classics. So this year it's Dickens.

So Far From Home, by Margaret Wheatley, is the only book that I'm reading because it's sort of related to work. I love Meg Wheatley's writing -- it's the most thought-provoking, eye-opening, and also often disturbing work that I read on transformation, healing and social justice. This one is brand new, seems to offer some new (and disturbing) suggestions, and speaks a truth so raw and vulnerable that I can only read a few pages at a time.

‘The Language of Flowers’ by Vanessa Diffenbaugh - Review

4. The Language of Flowers, by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, is a novel that comes highly recommended by the owner of one of my favorite independent book stores, A Great Good Place for Books in Oakland, California. Everything she's recommended to me has always been amazing, and I’ll now buy almost anything without even reading the back cover if she says it's good. Have you been to your local bookstore lately? Don’t give up on them! Stop by, chat with the salespeople and get their recommendations.
