Monday book club
I noticed the vernacular language of the Appalachians, though it was a bit different than what I'm familiar with...but I'm no expert.
And the 3 women that interact in this novel are so believable...I enjoyed seeing how they moved through the pages and their lives.
But I cried at the end. Can I help it? These days apparently a good ending does that to me. Just saying...
And I went to the library to find another of Pamela Duncan's books, so I'll be reading it soon.
I also have another Anita Diamant book. I was amazed and touched by the second Diamant book I read, "Day after Night." I'd read her "The Red Tent" once years ago, and recently again, and loved it again. Now I got to read a novel about the Jews who first settled the area that was to become Israel, and how they were treated by people who should have been helping them. Very powerful and eye-opening.
What powerful women authors!
And I found a Deborah Crombie murder mystery which I hadn't yet read. This is a great life.
I over-heard the librarians saying that one of the local University Libraries in Asheville was no longer going to hold physical books, everything would be e-books.
I'm glad I've now got a program for e-books, but it's not that easy to read them here at my desk and I'm not about to purchase a "tablet" to read them on. Remember when a tablet had yellow paper with lines?
