This book had an exciting premise and interesting structure told from three different points of view. However, the beginning was awkward and a bit uninteresting and if I hadn’t been encouraged to continue reading I would have abandoned it after the first chapter. Rachel’s life is a mess. She is divorced from Tom, whom she…
Millions of views watch reality television every day. I am not one of them. The two I did watch this year were enough to turn me off after the first episodes.
Recently, I got sick. Very sick. Probably the sickest I’ve ever been with a hemoglobin that dropped to one third of what it should be. Several days in bed in the hospital getting blood… Just what the doctor ordered.
CALL THE MIDWIFE calls to my heart and is one of my all time favorite shows and books. Maybe it’s because the story takes place during an era of renewal after a war that affected people world-wide.

They are humorous, sad, and thought provoking and you won’t forget them.

It was just a very good series, though I waited until the publication of The Wife Maker to read all three because of cliff hangers which I hate.
San Antonio is a southwestern city in Texas. If you’ve watched the TV program THE BRIDGE you know it’s a city with some of the same problems many border cities have- drug smuggling and illegal aliens. But it’s also one of the most visited for vacations in Texas. If you look at some of the pictures of the River Walk they may remind you of a city on another continent. The difference, of course, is that there’s just one river and the hotels and businesses are newer. But one can dream for a view minutes and imagine being in a gondola.
