Book Club, Worth Reading, See S Books, Books Worth, Books I Ve, Favorite Book, Snow Flower, I Ve Read
Loved this book! ~ Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a brilliantly realistic journey back to an era of Chinese history that is as deeply moving as it is sorrowful. With the period detail and deep resonance of Memoirs of a Geisha, this lyrical and emotionally charged novel delves into one of the most mysterious of human relationships: female friendship.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See A fascinating story of friendship in 19th century China. I LOVED this story!
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Intense. May take some time to digest yet a wonderful book.
It's on my list! Lisa See's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is an engrossing and fascinating story of women's friendships in nineteenth century rural China. This is an excellent, well-written novel--fascinating on so many levels. Lily, the narrator of the novel is in her eighties, looking back on her life. She shares the stories of her foot binding, nu shu, the secret women's writing, and the various formally women's friendships that society enforced.
books worth reading All of Lisa See's books are worth reading too. Interested in the movie.
One of my very favorite books! Love it!

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, by Jamie Ford (Book Club Kit). Set in the ethnic neighborhoods of Seattle during World War II and Japanese American internment camps of the era, this debut novel tells the heartwarming story of widower Henry Lee, his father, and his first love Keiko Okabe.
Great book... historical fiction about Japanese American evacuation in Seattle and internment camps in 1942
Set in the ethnic neighborhoods of Seattle during World War II and Japanese American internment camps of the era, this debut novel tells the heartwarming story of widower Henry Lee, his father, and his first love Keiko Okabe."
A boy of a Chinese-American family struggles with his identity when his best friend, a Japanese-American girl, is sent to an internment camp. Then years later their possessions are found in the basement of a hotel.
Great book I read 2 years ago.. historical fiction about Japanese American evacuation in Seattle and internment camps in 1942...a love story that spans a lifetime, but also shows how Japanese Americans were treated before, during WW2, and internment...
Adding to my "to read" list. Apparently this book starts out right before the Japanese Americans were put into camps during WWII. Upper middle class school friends, one Chinese and one Japanese document the suffering of innocent families who lost everything. Upon growing up, the two friends reconnect under a very unique situation. Helps the reader understand what not only the families involved went through, but also those who were left behind.
wonderful! one of the best books I"ve read this year.by LaVerne

My dream house always has a huge library with a fireplace, big cozy chairs with ottomans, and library ladders! (If you're going to dream, might as well dream big!!)
I have wanted a library ladder all my life. Mostly to recreate the scene from Beauty and the Beast. Yes you know what scene I'm talking about.
My dream house will have a library ladder, even if I have to build it in myself! :)

1000 Splendid Suns reflects the violence and hope of Aghanistan from a woman’s point of view. The prose is poignantly and beautifully expressive, poetic in ways that touch the heart and the spirit. Khladed Hosseini, author of Kite Runner, captures war and personal conflict in ways that make history and news intimately personal. One of my favorites from Book Club

Pinned says: One of my Favorite Books! The Shack books-worth-reading (this book has a wonderful meaning of who GOD is everyone has got to read it) you will think why in the world am I reading this book but just keep on reading you will see why in the end.
The Shack by William P Young, one of my first book club reads. Truly moved me. Provided perspective as to why tragedy happens to some of us, and how it is possible to pick up the pieces from that point onwards. One of my very favorite books!
Mackenzie Phillips's youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. In this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

My all time favorite book. Redeeming Love: Francine Rivers :: A powerful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea, Redeeming Love is a life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.
Redeeming Love- by Francine Rivers. Definitely a book worth reading. A heart twisting story based off of Hosea written in an enjoyable and understandable way. God is always waiting for us to come back to him.
"Redeeming Love" is an amazing fictional book by Francine Rivers based on the book of Hosea, which serves as a reminder of God's unconditional love for His people.
Best-selling author Francine Rivers skillfully retells the biblical love story of Gomer and Hosea in a tale set against the exciting backdrop of the California Gold Rush. The heroine, Angel, is a young woman who was sold into prostitution as a child. Michael Hosea is a godly man sent into Angel's life to draw her into the Savior's redeeming love. - Awesome book!
This is my all time favorite book. Nothing I could say would do it justice. A beautiful picture of REAL love that God intends for all of us and that he gives out to all of us.
One of my all-time favorite books! I recommend it for anyone, teenage and up. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Kate Morton is a wonderfully evocative writer. Her novels feature strong female protagonists who explore the past in search of facts to clear up a mystery and thereby ease their own lives. I love the way she goes back and forth between the present and the past. This book, in particular, has a spectacular twist at the end. DO NOT SKIP AHEAD!

I just noticed Kate Morton's books on the library shelf, and picked up this one and another one on a whim. I had started reading the other one first, and it didn't grab me; I put it down, and with little hope of liking this one, I started reading anyway. WOW! I loved this book. It starts off slow, but improves quickly and finishes with a bang! I have to say it again: I loved this book!
