Just finished this; I give it an A-. More interesting, I like the UK book cover more than the US version. Who makes those choices, I wonder?

The Sequel to Shanghai Girls. Dreams of Joy: A Novel: Lisa See:
Great book, read Shanghai Girls first.
Though inseparable best friends, the sisters also harbor petty jealousies and rivalries. Along the way they make terrible sacrifices, face impossible choices, and confront a devastating, life-changing secret, but through it all the two heroines of this astounding new novel hold fast to who they are�Shanghai girls.

Summer reading recommended by Karen DeAngelis, Assistant Professor, Educational Leadership -- Shanghai Girls: A Novel: Lisa See
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See (author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan) - about sisters who are forced to marry and move to San Francisco. Starts out slow, but I will read anything about China, and it turned out to be very interesting.
Shanghai Girls - by the same author as Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. It's starting out just as wonderful!
Though inseparable best friends, the sisters also harbor petty jealousies and rivalries. Along the way they make terrible sacrifices, face impossible choices, and confront a devastating, life-changing secret, but through it all the two heroines of this astounding new novel hold fast to who they are�Shanghai girls. When I finished this I had to read On Gold Mountain (non-fiction) about the See family history. Fascinating!
Excellent novel - historical novel about China at WWII, and love between sisters

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese Book Club Discussion Guide from BookMovement --Book Clubs, Book Reviews, Discussion Questions, Book Lists
Without a doubt, one of my favorite books that I have read over the past couple of years. One sign that I really get into a book is when I get to the final page, pause, and then start at page one again. It might take awhile to get into all the characters, but each one comes alive on the page for the reader. Absolutely an amazing book.
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. Set in Ethiopia. Definitely worth reading. One of my favorite books.
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese, the next book club selection. It's 534 pages long, so I better start reading...
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. This is the next choice in our book club - chosen by Susanna.
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese -- Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon. Orphaned by their mother’s death and their father’s disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics, that will tear them apart. #books #reading
Cutting for Stone - such an amazing book!! Would definitely read this again
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese [on reading list]
Cutting for Stone...one of my most favorite books ever.
A wonderful piece of historical fiction by a first-time author. She writes through the eyes of two narrators, one a young Irish girl, an indentured servant, and the other, a young female slave, on a plantation in Virginia at the turn of the 18th century. I loved the book and it's characters that live on after the book is closed.

Another one of my all time favorite books! When a white servant girl violates the order of plantation society, she unleashes a tragedy that exposes the worst and best in the people she has come to call her family. Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction. Lavinia finds herself perilously straddling two very different worlds. When she is forced to make a choice, loyalties are brought into question, dangerous truths are laid bare, and lives are put at risk. The Kitchen House is a tragic story of page-turning suspense, exploring the meaning of family, where love and loyalty prevail.
Best way to read!

Great book. It is classified as young adult but I read it and by far it is one of my favorite books I have ever read.
"The Book Thief" Markus Zusak. Fiction. The book is set in Nazi, Germany. It describes a young girl's relationship with foster parents, the other resident's of their neighborhood, and a Jewish fist-fighter who hides in her home during WWII. New York Bestseller List (2006) for over 230 weeks. One of my favorite books because it is so well-written.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel -- a young German girl whose book-stealing and story-telling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors. Young Adult | Fiction | Historical.
A pinner said: All I knew about this book when it was recommended for my son's book club (when he was 12) was that it was narrated by Death. Hmmmm. Sounded dark, so I thought I'd better investigate. The book club ended up not reading it, but I listened to the audiobook and declared it my favorite book of the year!
The Book Thief - such an amazing book about a German girl in Nazi occupation and the power of the written word. The narrator surprises you!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. An absolutely amazing book. Takes place in Nazi Germany, from the perspective of death and a poor German girl. I highly, highly recommend it.
The Book Thief. On my Reading List. My sister says it may be her favorite book of all time....
An amazing book for readers young adult and up.
worth reading for the ending
