I have been spending a lot of time reading lately. I finished my crafting deadlines for local shows and have enough stock so I am taking a bit of a break. I am also trying to organize my craft space so I don't want to start any new projects until that is done.
I am going to post the last 3 books I have read. I hope you find something here to add to your summer reading list!
I picked this book up 2nd hand. I have read Kaye's books before and I thought it sounded like an interesting story. After reading some of the reviews I was worried but I really did enjoy this book. I always enjoy reading about people who lived through difficulties but come out better for them and I think this is one of those type books. If you want everything to be sunshine and roses then do not read this book. The graphic descriptions of the civil war experience could also bother some but I felt it gave a good feeling of what life was like for those living near the fighting. If I learn something new or come to a better understanding of something then I feel the book was worth at least a 3. If I kept wanting to find time to read it gets a 4. I reserve 5's for books that I will never forget and this wasn't quite that inspiring but still worth my time.
I found this lovely book in a 2nd hand book store. I am reading this at a leisurely pace as I enjoy my gardening this summer. Katharine is a hoot and I know I would have liked her very much!
