Books Completed Last Week:


THE FORGOTTEN SEAMSTRESS by Liz Trenow

This is for a blog tour on May 30. 

It was a fantastic book.  No review at this time.  I need to wait until May 30 to post, but below are a few lines from my review.

"A quilt with a history.  A quilt containing royal cloth.  A quilt spanning a number of years.  A quilt that told a story.

If you enjoy reading family history and the history of family heirlooms created by a past generation and found by the present generation, you will definitely enjoy THE FORGOTTEN SEAMSTRESS.

The writing is flawless, the characters are lovable and unforgettable, the storyline will definitely hold your interest until the last page.  And...the last few pages will have you glued to each word.​ 5/5"

EMBER ISLAND by Kimberley Freeman

I am not too far into the book, but it is good.  It has secrets hidden in a family homestead.

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists.  :)
