SEABISCUIT (An American Legend) by Laura Hillenbrand

This is a breathtaking saga of one horses journey from an also ran to national fame.
SEABISCUIT'S dormant talent was discovered by three dedicated men.
It takes place in the depression days of the 1930's.
I learned alot about horseracing in this true story.
I found many mesmerizing moments in this interesting tale.

This is a first novel by this author. I read a review on it (not on here) and thought it sounded good because I like psychological thrillers. But I did not like this book and I finally gave up and didn't even finish it, which is very strange for me because I can not remember the last time I closed up a book and said "not for me because I am wasting my time." There are just to many other books I enjoy. I did not care for her style of writing.

If someone else does read this book I would like to know what you think of it.

This marvelous novel held my attention throughout.
The inspiration for this historical epic came from the author's family history.
It features two Italian families who migrate from Italy to America at the turn of the 20th century.
They settle in New York and face many challenges.
Two of the main characters,Enza and Ciro meet as teenagers and we see how the power of love changes their lives.
This is a book I will remember.

THE NEW NEIGHBOR by Leah Stewart

Margaret is 90 years old and content to live alone in her mountain home by a pond. Jennifer moves into the house across the pond from Margaret with her 4 year old son. She would also rather be alone. Both of these women have secrets...What happened to Margaret during WWII? And what secret does Jennifer have that makes her hard to know or to talk to?

A very different read.

THE CELLAR by Natasha Preston

A weird story about young women who are taken by a very deranged man who wants them to be "his family." He keeps them in his cellar which he has fixed up to be very nice with a bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom. He is a clean freak so everything has to be kept spotless and the girls must shower twice a day. He also names all the girls after flowers.

The main character is taken on a short walk from her home to a party. She is 16 year old Summer but is renamed Lily.

The story is told between Summer, her boyfriend, and the man who takes the women.

This is an interesting,witty, humorous tale about a man who poses as a famous but reclusive author.
It includes a touching love story.
It was an enjoyable somewhat bizarre read.

This novel about George and Martha Washington was a unique and entertaining read.
This was Mary Higgins Clark's first novel. It was published in1969 under a different title.
This novel shows the human side of the man who became "the father of our country".
