The half-remembered vision of another life burns in her heart, even as her beloved sister, Dandy, risks everything for their future.

Wideacre (Wideacre Trilogy #1) - I believe this was the first Philippa Gregory I ever read and I loved it so! Amazing book.
Wideacre (Wideacre Trilogy) - by Philippa Gregory - rather racy at times. Story is full of greed, hate, love, incest, murder, etc., but once the story gets going its hard to put it down.
Just finished this first book in the Wideacre trilogy by Philippa Gregory! Enjoyed the book despite the fact that the main character Beatrice was just beastly!!
Wideacre (The Wideacre Trilogy, #1), and others by Philippa Gregory...recommended by Maddie..."anything by her is awesome!"
The Wideacre Trilogy got me hooked on Philippa Gregory....my favorite historical fiction novelist

One of my other favourite books from when I was young. Although, I must admit that Jo's Boys by LM Alcott was my favourite by her. It made me want to have a school for boys.

5/5 YES. This is easily one of my favorite books. No language, minimal violence. It's one of the first horror novels, but it isn't particularly scary. I highly recommend this book.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Vladimir Nabokov (Introduction), Dan Chaon (Goodreads Author) (Afterword)
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson - Mr. Utterson, the lawyer, finds it odd that his friend, Dr. Jekyll, has amended his will to include Mr. Hyde, a horrifying madman. . . and Utterson is determined to get to the bottom of the situation!
A timeless classic by the author who wrote Treasure Island, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is yet another intriguing tale about the darkness of human nature.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer. Mixed feelings on this one in the end. I found bits of it very moving but it jumped around too much to fully hold my attention.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer “I hope that one day you will have the experience of doing something you do not understand for someone you love.”
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer. Endnu en bevægende bog der kryber helt ind under huden. Så fin en fortælling om en skrøbelig og alligevel så stærk lille dreng der søger sin far i New Yorks gader og i mødet med andre skæbner.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer was such a beautiful read. It’s about a boy whose father died in the 9/11 incident that copes and goes out looking for the secret behind a key he finds in his father’s closet. It’s not so much the story that appeals, but the characters, the things they say, the things they share that are most hurtful to me, that made me feel so much which makes it one of my favorite books. Highly recommended.
The book club's November pick - Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.
