Such a good book! Read it! :)
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd
Historical fiction about a woman who chooses to live with the Native Americans (1875) in order to find her personal freedom.
The story of Mary Dodd who travels west in 1875 to marry a Cheyenne Indian. A good historical fiction book!
On my "To Read" list... Another pinner said: "Little known fact from our history... 1,000 "white women" traded for peace with native Americans... amazing story. Couldn't put it down.--sounds good."
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. - with so many re-pins elsewhere I thought I'd add it to my "should read" list.
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus - historical fiction, the account of several "civilized" woman married to Cheyenne Indians (Chief Little Wolf) as part of a government program (General Grant) in the mid-800s in Nebraska territory. interesting, quick read - believable, draws you in, you won't want to put it down.
loved this book read it years ago and still recall the basic story

One of my favorite books ever
Book Club book
She closed the door on the little white face, turned the key in the lock. Then she slipped the key into her pocket. The lock was hidden by a pivoting device shaped like a light switch. It was impossible to see the outline of the cupboard in the paneling of the wall. Yes, he'd be safe there. She was sure of it. The girl murmured his name and laid her palm flat on the wooden panel. "I'll come back for you later. I promise." (tatiana de rosnay, sarah's key)
Sarah's Key #sarahskey A great WWII book from the point of view of a jewish child living in France, and a present day journalist researching WWII.
Sarah's Key- amazing book but incredibly sad... and they're making it into a movie although I can't say I'll see it in the theater's due to amount of tears I'll shed!
An amazing book with a strong message. Add this to your reading list, then go see the movie.
Such an amazing book. Sarahs Key - She closed the door on the little white face, turned the key in the lock. Then she slipped the key into her pocket. The lock was hidden by a pivoting device shaped like a light switch. It was impossible to see the outline of the cupboard in the paneling of the wall. Yes, he’d be safe there. She was sure of it. The girl murmured his name and laid her palm flat on the wooden panel. “I’ll come back for you later. I promise.” -From Sarah’s Key, page 9-
Sarah's Key.. this looks like an interesting book club selection too.

The Kitchen House: A Novel by Kathleen Grissom Book Club Discussion Guide from BookMovement --Book Clubs, Book Reviews, Discussion Questions, Book Lists
The Kitchen House-- wont replace Gone with the Wind on my shelf, Or The Help as so many have compared, but a page turner. I hope this will generate a good discussion at book club.
The Kitchen House !! I could not put this one down. The story of an orphan girl from Ireland who lives with the slaves on a tobacco plantation then moves into the big house where loyalties and betrayals collide.
A book club book for me, it really makes you wonder how some people get to a place in their head.

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.
One of my favorite books.
Long but great book. I couldn't put it down. The length didn't really bother me since I was reading it on an ereader. Miniseries was fantastic!

The Forgotten Garden~A Book Review
As you come to the last chapter, you will be reluctant to continue reading. You will not want this story to come to an end. Actually; you will feel that way when reading any of Kate Morton's stories.
A woman on a quest to find out the truth about her family, a mysterious Victorian authoress, a book of dark fairytales and a long-hidden secret. Another addictive and compulsively readable romance/mystery from Kate Morton.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family, a love denied, and a mystery.

A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family, a love denied, and a mystery. The Forgotten Garden is a captivating, atmospheric and compulsively readable story of the past, secrets, family and memory from the international best-selling author Kate Morton
This is the book that the members of the book club I belong to will be reading over the holidays.
The Secret Garden was my favorite when I was little...The Forgotten Garden is my favorite now!
Great Book! Book Club Selection. Quotes: “A girl expecting rescue never learns to save herself. Even with the means, she will find her courage wanting.” “Cassandra always hid when she read, though she never quite knew why. It was as if she couldn't shake the guilty suspicion that she was being lazy, that surrendering herself so completely to something so enjoyable must surely be wrong. But surrender she did. Let herself drop through the rabbit hole and into a tale of magic and mystery ...”

The Art of Racing in the Rain http://media-cache0.pinterest.com/upload/31736372343637715_Q8OlVZnR_f.jpg tamleon nothing like a good book
The intelligence and heart of a dog whose human is a race car driver. Highly recommend for a book club.
since finishing this book, I’ve found myself staring at my own dog thinking... hmmm, I wonder.
One of my favorite books: "On the eve of his death, Enzo the dog takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny's wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoë, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family ..." Every word is beautiful. Read it, and be changed forever.
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein is one of my all-time favorite books.
Good book- every dog owner should read it!
