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. Cassandra is lost, alone and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has ju...more
I couldn't put it down...luckily I was sick..and in bed..and how great to have a book like this to keep me company!! If you like mysteries or fairy tales and if you like both..then you will love it!! Great book... I think if I could say anything..maybe it is a little confusing going back and forth in time...but about half way..I got the hang of it!! Well worth reading!
I have read and loved all of Kate Morton's books, but The Forgotten Garden is my favourite.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. One of my favorite books of all time!

One of the 5 most important books of the 20th century, and it has the power to change your life. Fankl's logotherapy was the most important breakthroughs in psychology and is perfectly relevant today. It helps to bring meaning to all aspects of our lives and even to organizations. Purpose is central to our lives and Frankl gives a path of discernment and application. Short quick read, life changing.

this book was life changing for me: Man's Search for Meaning
Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl This is one of the most inspirational books I've ever read.
Dr. Viktor Frankl's autobiography of his experiences in a Nazi Concentration Camp and his discovery of meaning...one of my all-time favorite books.
Man's Search for Meaning. Read and re-read and re-read. Great book!
Man's Search for Meaning: Viktor Frankl's deeply moving account of his years in concentration camps, and beautiful observations on how to "be worthy of one's suffering". Given his experience, his words carry a weight and power to truly change how one experiences life's difficulties. Foundational book.
Fascinating book about psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's life in a Nazi death camp. From the book description - "Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory—known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")—holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful."
Heart wrenching memoir of an African woman's treacherous journey and struggles to leave behind the abuses and the abusers in an extremist Islamic society. Extremely moving true story and an independent movie was made about it too. Sadly, the Frenchman who made movie was murdered for making this film.

Riveting memoir written by an incredibly strong, intelligent woman
Raised in a strict Muslim family, Hirsi Ali survived civil war in Somalia, female circumcision, brutal beatings, an adolescence as a devout believer, the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, and life in four countries under dictatorships. She escaped from a forced marriage and sought asylum in the Netherlands, where she fought for the rights of Muslim women and the reform of Islam, earning her the enmity of reactionary Islamists and craven politicians.
This is now on my summer book list after my mom read sections of it to me on our family vacation. She seems like a truly amazing woman!
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is one of today’s most admired and controversial political figures. She burst into international headlines following the murder of Theo van Gogh by an Islamist who threatened she would be next; and she made headlines again when she was stripped of her citizenship and forced to resign from the Dutch Parliament.

Rules Of Civility Paperback

Met him, loved him, loved this book. Rules of Civility - A novel - by Amor Towles #rulesofcivility #amortowles #NYCinthe30s
Rules of Civility: A Novel - Read in my Book Club and was an absolute favorite of mine. Takes you back to 1920s New York. #ThriftBooksTop10
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles New York in 1938 is the setting for Katey Content's rise from a Wall Street secretarial pool to the publishing world. As the story unfolds her relationships along the way add intrigue and drama. A good novel to "escape" back into a different time and it was very clever how the author tied George Washington's Rules of Civility into the storyline. Definitely worth reading.
Amor Towles Seriously, a book WORTH reading, enjoy!
Sarah's Key-at times - heart wrenching, a good read.
