Summer Reading Program

Our summer reading program has ended. The winner of our raffle was Danielle Perry who won a lovely gift basket filled with goodies.

Here are some reviews from readers in the program this summer. Please feel free to add any recommendations you may have to share with other readers.

Girl in the Shadows / V. C. Andrews
After losing both parents, April Taylor found shelter from a mixed up life and from confusion with her sister.

Hard Truth / Mariah Stewart
Entertaining story, suspenseful as well as interesting plot.

Truth of Love / Jayne Ann Krentz
Kind of slow to get into at first, but story progresses to be quite entertaining.

Falling Awake / Jayne Ann Krentz
Well written, interesting topic regarding sleep study.

Sizzle and Burn / Jayne Ann Krentz
Slow to get started but I enjoyed the plot after the first few chapters. Book primarily about psychic powers.

The Dogs of Bedlam Farm / Jon Katz
Excellent story of an author and farmer who is transformed by love of his dogs and a renewed kinship with his sister. Great read!

Knitting Bones / Monica Ferris
Very good mystery. A page turner toward a great finish.

Three Cups of Tea / Greg Mortenson
Mr. Mortenson’s persistence and generosity are amazing. After a failed attempt to climb K2, Mr. Mortenson finds himself in a Pakistan village where he is nursed back to health. He promises to return one day to build the community a school . He exceeds that promise by building schools throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan in some of the poorest communities. This is a remarkable story of a great humanitarian.

The Painted Veil / W. Somerset Maugham
Good romance.

No Country for Old Men / Cormac McCarthy
Set in West Texas, the book starts slow but then is difficult to put down. Told from the view of the county sheriff, the book deals with drugs and money on the border and the toll it takes on the community. After you read the book, be sure to see the film.

Under Orders / Dick Francis
Another Sid Halley investigation turns dangerous as corruption invades the online gambling world.
