2009 Book Reviews #9

A Song I Knew by Heart by Bret Lott

An "OK" book. I expected much more of a book based on the story of Ruth. The storyline was a little weak in areas and while the story of love and forgiveness is definitely a good one, this book just didn't deliver as well as I expected it to.

One L by Scott Turow

While this book is old - published in 1977 - I still found Mr. Turow's reflections of his first year as a law student very interesting. I know part of the reason is that in the late 70's/early 80's I worked with 2 people who were also attending law school. It brought back memories of what they were going through. It would be interesting to read a more current book written by a 1L to see how much things have changed over the years.

Sutter's Cross by W. Dale Cramer

I like Mr. Cramer's books. This one did not disappoint. A story of family, greed and miracles. Another one worth reading.

Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

A really good book! It was one of those stories that drew me in and kept me wanting to read and learn where life was taking the characters. A wonderful story of friendship and family.

Music and Silence by Rose Tremain

If you like historical novels, you will probably like this one. A story set in Denmark in 1629 revolving around the King of Denmark, the queen, a musician and the queen's lady. Well written.

Sleep Toward Heaven by Amanda Eyre Ward

I like Ms Ward's books. This one is a thought provoking story of grace, mercy and forgiveness. It made me wonder how I would react if I were the different characters. Not a light read but not overbearing. One that stays with you.
