Review : A Memory of Violets by Hazel Gaynor

The story is told by different perspective mainly by Tilly and Flora. Within the first few chapter, I knew that this novel was going to toy with my emotions. The entries from Flora's diary especially. It's written so beautifully that I could feel how painful her experience was. Mind you I am not a person who cries because of a book, but this one successfully made me sob like a possessed mad woman. I cried whenever I read Flora's point of view and I am glad because Gaynor arranged the chapters alternately, otherwise I'd end up sobbing until the last page.

Get ready - three great thrillers come out on 7/26! The first, THE LOST GIRLS, takes us back to 1935, where six-year-old Emily disappears from her family's vacation lake home. Emily's doting mother is devastated, and she and her two daughters spend the rest of their lives at the lake house, waiting for Emily to return. Six decades later, only the middle sister, Lucy, is still alive. Afraid of dying without telling her story, she writes the tale down and leaves it, along with the house, to her sister's granddaughter, Justine. Justine's older daughter, Melanie, becomes interested in Emily's disappearance; her mother, Maurie, returns, bringing her usual craziness; and ghosts from Justine's own past threaten their safety. Justine doesn't know what happened at the lake sixty years ago, nor does she know if it's safe for her family now...

This novel was a quick read, which pulled me into its tale immediately. The POV alternates between present-day (late 1990s) with Justine and then flips back to the 1930s, as Lucy tells her story. Young does an excellent job in creating her characters: Lucy and her older sister Lilith practically jump off the page, as does little Emily. This is a somber book with serious themes; it's not always an easy read. Still, the back and forth POV works well in this case, and you'll quickly become enraptured in Lucy and Lilith's past, in particular. Overall, this was a different book (in a good way), with insightful and well-drawn characters, and an intriguing plot. Lucy sticks with you, even after it's over. ‪#‎thelostgirls‬ ‪#‎heatheryoung‬ ‪#‎books‬ ‪#‎review‬

Check out our new episode for Neil Peart and Kevin K. Anderson's new collaboration "Clockwork Lives". A great steampunk book about the life of a young woman tasked with going out on a grand adventure in search of other people's stories.

The Dance My First Love, has left me completely speechless. Kristy Cato reaches in and grabs the heart of the reader, we all can recall the profound affect of our first love. I have read over 600 books in the past few years and I will tell you this story of Kim and Carrie has the most real and true elements of how we love. We all say "I love you, unconditionally...." In this story you will find the most honest struggles we face when we love someone more than ourself. Be ready to experience a plethora of emotions. A warm feeling of joy and happiness... You will smile and laugh with Carrie and Kim. You will also cry and feel for each of them as they struggle with the consequences of their actions. Ultimately, if you understand or desire to give and receive unconditional love you will find it here, in this wonderfully written story....

The Language of Trees
Ilie Ruby
Paperback, A+ Edition, 368 pages
Published July 20th 2010 by Avon
ISBN: 0061898643 (ISBN13: 9780061898648)
 
Always a treat for me to read a book set locally for me. The Language of Trees by Ilie Ruby is set in Canandaigua, NY and includes local haudenosaunee traditions of the Seneca tribe. A small town setting, well developed characters, and some historical context are included in Ruby's novel. There was a little bit of predictability, but over all was well written. The several small subplots were well connected, and I kept finding myself wanting to pick up the book to finish it. I would definitely read more by Ilie Ruby.
