One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians.....looks interesting, on my TO READ list!
The story of Mary Dodd who travels west in 1875 to marry a Cheyenne Indian. A good historical fiction book!
April - One Thousand White Women- 3/12 - OK I found this very interesting and enjoyed it until the last chapter. That is 2 book club books in a row that were downers at the end :
Book Club November 2014- One Thousand White Women, a good historical fiction book.
I have to admit. I was slightly distracted at the beginning of this book by 4 rowdy children, so I was under the (mistaken) assumption that this was historical fiction as I read. It wasn't until the afterward that I realized my mistake. This misunderstanding, however, did not interfere with my total and complete enjoyment of this book. Fergus manages to stay true to the attitude of whites towards Native Americans at the time without his characters being offensive and easy to hate. His meticulous research about the lifestyle and customs of The People is really what makes this book outstanding and impossible to put down.
One of my favorite books. Amazing!' A must read.
Reading List: Historical Fiction
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd This book is fiction, but it might not have been. The book starts in 1875 with Ulysses S. Grant requesting that 1,000 white women intermarry with Cheyenne Indians. The story is that of one woman, May Dodd, who volunteered to do just that. This is her story and the story of those she met along her journey. The books was, in fact, so realistic that I had to check it really was fiction. There is a lot of information about the lifestyle of the Indians and the attitudes of the time. And in our book club led to some "what if" discussions, which were also very enlightening. The book is really well written and very informative about the period, the politics and human nature. This is a favorite of mine amongst the book club books I have read. Pin It

Today is my first Book Club Friday! I am hoping to get in the swing of reading again and I am sure I will find some great suggestions over at Blonde...Undercover Blonde's link up. The last book that I read was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. I picked it up on the way to get a pedicure to have something to read and the main reason I settled on it was that it is a historical novel. The main story is fictional but the events that occurred are factual. I loved the book and I was unable to put it down once I started. It is the first book that I have read since becoming a mother and I saw what a different light I view things from. If you read it, you will see why. I also see that I must have been under a rock somehow missed the fact that it has been made into a movie. Here is an overview from Barnes & Noble: Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released. Sixty Years Later: Sarah’s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own future. In Sarah’s Key, Tatiana de Rosnay offers up a mesmerizing story in which a tragic past unfolds, the present is torn apart, and the future is irrevocably altered. And here are some reviews: “This is a remarkable historical novel, a book which brings to light a disturbing and deliberately hidden aspect of French behavior towards Jews during World War II. Like Sophie's Choice, it's a book that impresses itself upon one's heart and soul forever.” –Naomi Ragen, author of The Saturday Wife and The Covenant “Sarah's Key unlocks the star crossed, heart thumping story of an American journalist in Paris and the 60-year-old secret that could destroy her marriage. This book will stay on your mind long after it's back on the shelf.” –Risa Miller, author of Welcome to Heavenly Heights I hope that if you pick it up you love it also!

Their fates were linked by the magical Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, nicknamed the “White City” for its majestic beauty. Architect Daniel Burnham built it; serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes used it to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder. Both men left behind them a powerful legacy, one of brilliance and energy, the other of sorrow and darkness.

I don't usually read books about murder and serial killers, but this one was good and I could not put the book down. Set during the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, which was nicknamed the “White City”, this book is a suspense story about a serial killer, Dr. H. H. Holmes, who used the "White City" to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder.
One of my book club reads. Pretty good... I liked reading about the gory killings and the crazy life of a serial killer.
I recommended this for book club and was told it was too macabre, I, however, loved it!
Scary but an excellent book. Lot of information on things invented for the world's fair

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.
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. This was a very sad book but good book. Don't read if you expect something good to happen because it won't.

The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom This April the Central Library Book Club discussed The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. This novel is set around the turn of the 19th century and follows a young irish girl named Lavinia. Lavinia lost both of her parents on the voyage to America and is separated from her brother when she is purchased as an indentured servant by Captain James Pyke. She is raised in the kitchen house of the Captain's plantation and quickly bonds with the slaves who raise and love her, despite their different skin colors and situations. Through many years and tragedies, Lavinia finds her life turned inside out after she marries the son of the Captain, who takes over the plantation when he comes of age. Suddenly cut off from having the freedom to show affection to her childhood family, Lavinia must find the strength to protect her family in the face of ignorance, hatred, and secrets that shape entire lives.

Oh my goodness. Have you read Kathleen Grissom's The Kitchen House? If not, go quickly and buy it, borrow it, or take it off your TBR pile. I wish I had another book guaranteed this good to anticipate! The Kitchen House is the story of Lavinia, a little Irish immigrant orphan who becomes an indentured servant on a Virginia plantation, and the family that raises her—and the family that owns her. What Lavinia doesn't understand is that she is white and her adopted family is the property of the master: the slaves of the big house. As she grows into womanhood, she is forced to acknowledge that she is a white girl, and her family is black. What she refuses to deny, however, is that they are, indeed, her family. She has to learn to carefully straddle the two worlds, to protect those she loves, and to simply survive a brutal introduction into adulthood. I know. It sounds like a "been there, done that" kind of novel. The plot line I've given merely scratches the surface. There is nothing sentimental or trite about this novel. Grissom is a master storyteller. Told from the perspectives of both Lavinia as well as Belle, her adoptive mother who is the master's illegitimate daughter, the novel is fast-paced, beautifully written, and absolutely compelling. In an interview, author Grissom hints that she may be writing more on some of the characters in this novel. I can only hope! Linked up on Semicolon's Saturday Review of Books

Great book... historical fiction about Japanese American evacuation in Seattle and internment camps in 1942
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet --the love story of a Chinese boy and Japanese girl who were separated when she and her family were sent to an internment camp during WWII. Very unsettling how these Japanese Americans were treated.
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. A beautiful book that deals with a part of our history that is not often talked about--the life of Japanese Americans during WWII. Probably would have never read it if we hadn't picked it for book club. So glad I ddi!
Seattle 1986: the personal posessions of thirty seven Japanese families are found in the basement of the Panama hotel where they have lain forgotten by everyone, except Henry. Seattle, 1942: Henry is "scholarshipping" as the only Chinese-American student at his otherwise all-white middle school when he meets Japanese-American Keiko and the two form a close and unlikely friendship. Aptly titled book! Read 4/13
