Distant Shores by Kristin Hannah

Distant ShoresDistant Shores by Kristin Hannah

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book is about a bird who falls out of her nest because she has forgotten how to fly. Elizabeth Shore aka "Birdie" realizes one day that her life is not all it is cracked up to be. She has a husband, and two wonderful kids but somewhere along the way she has lost herself. After a tragedy in the family shakes her foundation. Grief forces her from her nest and she realizes that has to find the deep down love for herself and her lost passions before she can fly up to her nest to be loved once more. Along the way there is hurt feelings, and a drastic brake-ups but in the end she gains more than she bargains for. I really enjoyed this book it reminded how important it is not to give up on my writing no matter how hectic my real life gets. The only problem I had with this book is that the pacing is painfully slow but maybe that was the point as it was a book about healing relationships and that process is never easy or quick. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes romance, or is struggling to find themselves.

In this latest installment of Into the West Tina's adventure continues to unfold. This time while checking the fence she is once again drawn to the mysterious canyon that takes her into the past.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Have you ever loved someone or something so much that if anything happened to them you would stop at nothing to seek retribution for your loss. That is exactly what this book is about love, loss, and the power they both have over people's lives. I have to say that I loved this book from beginning to end. The best and worst part of this book is that the characters were so real that you didn't want the book to end so, when it did you were left hanging wondering about the well being of all the characters not just those in the last few pages. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes romance, suspense, and a good mystery.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Bleachers By John Grisham
Sometimes a sports team is the back bone and life blood of a whole town. In this book
a infamous coach is dieing. His death has brought everyone back to their hometown to honor him. In the process they lay to rest more then just a great man.
They learn to accept the power of a man to motivate a group of people throughout their entire lives not just when they are on the field.
This book makes you realize that it is more than a sport it is a state of mind. I would recommend this book to anyone who has had a mentor not just those who like football.
