Her mother, who had also been a single mother as well, was very willing to help raise Maze but Vista left and fought to keep Maze fed and a roof over their heads. When it happened she stopped talking for a long time, until she met a boy. Then there was Georgina Ward who had taught at Berea College 60 years before. She taught there for some time but opened her classroom to black people to listen to her lectures. They were not allowed to become students there and eventually after the school learned what Georgina was doing they threw her out.
She ended up in a Shaker community and took a vow as a sister. It was there, many years later that Vista and Maze met her and cared for her. This story has a lot of people to remember as it weaves back and forth from one generation to the next and back again. However, they are all unforgettable characters. This book was very hard to put down. It would make an excellent book club book as there are a lot of issues that could be discussed. If you enjoy historical fiction and multigenerational stories, this book is for you.

My name's Dawn and this will be my 8th year in the 75 Book Challenge Group! I live in Lexington, KY with my husband, I work in the horse industry and I love to read memoirs, horse books and cookbooks! I can't wait to get started reading this year and my primary challenge will be rescuing bookmarks from abandoned tomes i. Welcome drneutron and aktakukac!! Well, my first reads of the year are in: 1 - Hi Fella by Era Zistel , pages own. This is a childhood book of my husband's, found on a recent attic clean out. The sweet story of a lost puppy. Anna of Byzantium was destined to be empress Interesting insight into a queen I didn't know anything about.
Larson becomes a chauffeur in L. She receives an offer to ferry around a Saudi family for a month, with the hope of a big bonus at the end. I could certainly commiserate with her, as I used to have a high-stress job where my time was not my own! An English couple retires and decides to experiment with a "5-year plan" by moving to Spain and rennovating a house in a small village.
Hilarity ensues. I've read quite a few books lately about Spain and it certainly seems to be an interesting country! An Early Reviewer book, review to follow. I love these light mysteries. Nesbit , pages library. I read Voracious last year and it mentioned this children's book that I'd never read. Boy, they just don't write books like these anymore, do they? I just love books about immigrants to America with a culinary theme! I've finally gotten around to "reading" this collection of Thelwell cartoons. I doubt there's a horse lover alive that doesn't have a book of these on their shelves! Another lovely cookbook by Jamie Oliver with lots of great, healthy meal ideas.
A lovely tribute to the author's love of her mother. One of the reviews on the back of my copy said that all other books about cattle trails on the range could disappear except this one - I have to say, I agree! Though an enjoyable story, I'm afraid much of this went over my head I'm not sure if it stayed on my wish list or not. I have been sooo bad at updating my thread this year!
To be fair, I've taken on quite a project. I used to record the books I've read on shelfari. So, I've been spending my spare time entering everything onto LT, a big job! Think I'm finally getting to the end of it, which means more time for reading: 14 - Kitchen Gypsy by Joanne Weir , pages library.
A lucky find at my library - I'd heard of Joanne Weir, but had never seen any of her cookbooks.
And, I always love cookbooks with a story! If you want a good cry, give this children's book a read! Another lucky find at a used book store. I hadn't heard of this moral tale by Alcott before. This book addresses a lot of the concerns I've seen others mention when reading the first book. And, it's lit the fire back under me to get working on "tidying" my house again!
A suggested read from another LT'er. Some of this was a bit lost on me, but the rest sure made me laugh. You may know Hickman from Rocket Boys and other books. This is the fictionalized? An Early Reviewer book - review to follow. I'm enjoying Willig's non-Pink Carnation books just as much! Surprisingly, this author lives in Lexington!
A bit preachy but a Christian view of taking some Amish principles and applying them to your own life. Why have I never read Slater's cookbooks?? Gorgeous photos, great descriptions and one recipe that I know for sure is a hit!
I have a soft spot for all Oregon Trail related books. I don't understand my love for books about Vermont - I've never been there! But, this was a lucky find at a local bookshop. These two children's books were "loans" from my local bookstore. I was trying to find an Easter book for my nephew. A lovely collections of "Home on the Range" columns by the author, who writes for the Chicago Tribune. I wish we got this column in our own paper! And, I think this book is going to be on my "to purchase" list. This book surprised me because I had no idea it was out and luckily caught an interview with Chevalier on NPR!
She's one of my favorite authors and this was one of her typically good works. I saw this book recommended somewhere as a good new children's title - and it was. Now I want to research more about Dorothea Lange. This is about analyzing her "love" of hating almost everything in her life and her slow change in thinking.
Wow, what a book! It kept up a steady stream of suspense throughout and I love the point of view of Julia. I've been meaning to read this book for quite some time and I'm so glad I finally got around to it. I picked this up from my library on a whim and now I'm following Dore's blog. The Bok family purchases a rundown farm in CT in order to preserve land and fulfill the author's dream of owning a horse farm.
An honest look at horses from the naive but quick learning author. The Ramsey family moves to France for several years from South Carolina - and right across from the notorious Madame Mallet. A realistic look at what it takes to raise a family in a foreign country. I love Wickham's books and, though I initially wasn't into this one, I really enjoyed the tale of three friends in the end. Poole's unique tale of his 70's childhood.
The "latest" book in Abby Lovitt series. Leah's pony plays an important part in saving her family's farm during the Great Depression. I enjoyed Esperanza Rising a lot and looked forward to reading another of Ryan's books - especially when it features horses! A collection of essays from those who's lives have been affected by the book Eat, Pray, Love.
It's been long enough since I've read the book - and I wasn't all that affected by it at the time - that perhaps it's worth a re-read?
On a recent vacation to AR, we drove through Nashville and passed Loretta Lynn's ranch and restaurant - which we stopped at on the way back! There, I saw she had a book on her life, which I proceeded to check out of our library. Though I didn't know much about her until now, she's definitely had an interesting life!
I've "savored" this book for a while! If you've not yet had the chance to pick up one of Masumoto's books yet, I urge you to do so. A recommendation from someone on LT! This is definitely on my purchase list for my nephew! A co-worker was telling me how much she enjoyed this author and gave me a few of his books to read.

It's chock-full of gorgeous photography and healthy, vegan recipes! That being said, I was super excited about this cookbook only to realize it wasn't quite what I was expecting 49 - The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly , audibook library. Calpurnia is growing up on the cusp of the 20th century in Texas. She becomes attached to her naturalist grandfather - a contemporary of Darwin - and learns that women are capable of much more than simply being wives and mothers. From the blog of the same name, this was an impulse purchase when I had a coupon for my local bookstore.
