You will definitely want all the pasta while reading this book.
What I love about Italian and Sicilian culture is how their lives center around food. This book also increased my desire to learn Italian! One of the aspects of this book that I loved the most was her relationship with her mother in law, whom she referred to as Nonna Italian for grandmother. When she and Saro first were together and even when they were married, their relationship with her and Saro's father was rough.
While they did reconcile while Saro was still alive, it amazed me how close Tembi became with Nonna after Saro's death. Given their rocky relationship at first, I'm sure it was so difficult and overwhelming for her to connect with them without Saro. The love that Nonna showed Tembi and Zoela was inspiring as well. This book was the May pick for Reese Witherspoon's book club--and easily her best pick of so far.
I'm so thankful to be following along with this book club, otherwise I may not have read this beautiful book! I loved all three of these books!! My review will be on the blog next Wednesday, June I'm also listening to Commonwealth on audio from the library and enjoying it so far. Also working my way through books I haven't read from one of my favorite authors, fellow Oregonian Cathy Lamb.
Julia's Chocolates is one of her earliest releases and is delightful so farfull of classic Cathy Lamb laugh out loud humor. Her books always make me feel good! What are you reading this week? Labels: book blog , WWW Wednesday. I received no other compensation, and all opinions are my own. About the Book: Evvie, Maggie, and Topher have known one another since college. Their friendship was something they swore would last forever. Now years have passed, the friends have drifted apart, and they never found the lives they wanted--the lives they dreamed of when they were young and everything seemed possible.
Evvie starved herself to become a supermodel but derailed her career by sleeping with a married man. Maggie married Ben, the boy she fell in love with in college, never imagining the heartbreak his drinking would cause. Topher became a successful actor, but the shame of a childhood secret shut him off from real intimacy. By their thirtieth reunion, these old friends have lost touch with one another and with the people they dreamed of becoming.
Together again, they have a second chance at happiness. I've been a fan of Jane Green since my own college days, back when my roommate introduced me to her books! Her newest release is always a must read for me. I'm happy to say The Friends We Keep is one of my all time favorites of hers!
I absolutely loved this wonderful story of lifelong friendship. I particularly loved that the trio of friends included 2 females and one male--I loved each of them--Evvie, Maggie and Topher. This book beautifully illustrates the bond of best friends--how you can pick up right where you left off despite time or distance between you.
Typically, Jane Green's books focus on romance, which of course I love, but it was so refreshing to see the focus on friendship here.
Of course there is romance and relationship issues in this book, but the heart of this story is true, lasting friendship. If you're looking for a feel good read that will make your heart happy, this is the one for you. A perfect weekend read you won't be able to put down! Sunday, June 2, Review: Unsheltered. Willa Knox has always prided herself on being the embodiment of responsibility for her family. The magazine where she worked has folded, and the college where her husband had tenure has closed.
The dilapidated house is also home to her ailing and cantankerous Greek father-in-law and her two grown children: her stubborn, free-spirited daughter, Tig, and her dutiful debt-ridden, ivy educated son, Zeke, who has arrived with his unplanned baby in the wake of a life-shattering development. In an act of desperation, Willa begins to investigate the history of her home, hoping that the local historical preservation society might take an interest and provide funding for its direly needed repairs.
A science teacher with a lifelong passion for honest investigation, Thatcher finds himself under siege in his community for telling the truth: his employer forbids him to speak of the exciting new theory recently published by Charles Darwin. At home, his new wife and status-conscious mother-in-law bristle at the risk of scandal, and dismiss his financial worries and the news that their elegant house is structurally unsound. Brilliantly executed and compulsively readable, Unsheltered is the story of two families, in two centuries, who live at the corner of Sixth and Plum, as they navigate the challenges of surviving a world in the throes of major cultural shifts.
In this mesmerizing story told in alternating chapters, Willa and Thatcher come to realize that though the future is uncertain, even unnerving, shelter can be found in the bonds of kindred—whether family or friends—and in the strength of the human spirit. In the past, I haven't been a Kingsolver fan. I read The Poisonwood Bible a long time ago and didn't love it, but looking back, I think I read it too young to fully absorb and appreciate it.
I picked up Unsheltered because I saw so many positive reviews, and decided to listen on audio--read by Barbara Kingsolver herself. I'm SO glad I did! This book was absolutely brilliant. Her writing is so eloquent. There were times I would skip back just to hear the beautiful sentences again. The book starts with Willa in the present day portion of the story, and then each chapter witches back and forth between Willa's family and the same town in the 's.
At first I was worried this would be one of those books where I wasn't into one perspective but I was completely wrong--I absolutely loved Mary Treat's character based off a real person! I loved how the same themes were woven together throughout both time frames. I loved how real and relateable this story was, and how most Americans could relate to many of the feelings and challenges of these amazing characters.
I loved everything about this book, and have regretted not reading more of her work in the past--I look forward to reading more of her books and so happy I chose to listen to this fantastic novel! It's a long one hours on audio--but worth every minute! Labels: audiobook review , book blog , book review. Alec glanced at the papers on his desk. They were arranged in neat piles, which Margot appreciated. How could anyone find anything on a messy desk? Her boss, a man whose desk was al- ways covered with folders and notes and half-eaten sandwiches, was forever sending her articles on how messy desks were a sign of creativity and intelligence, but Margot would not be swayed in her opinion.
Disorder was just plain wrong.

Margot filed away the tone to review later. The dynamic between mother and son could be significant to her work. Bianca Wray was born in Her father died when she was an infant and she was raised by her mother until she was twelve. She f lashed Alec a smile. She preferred quirky roles to the obvious ingenue parts that would have helped her have a more successful career.
She had one son—you—when she was twenty-four. She and your father, a Swiss banker, never married, but you were close to both your parents. She acts in the occasional project. She enjoys remodeling homes and has made a lot of money f lipping upscale houses. She gives generously to charity and has had many lovers in her life, but has never married. She is currently dating a man named Wesley Goswick-Chance. Goswick-Chance is the youngest son of an English earl.
His parents divorced when he was an infant and he grew up in both England and the small European country of Cardigania. He is stationed at the consulate here in Los Angeles. There was the time Bianca had been presenting at the Academy Awards and had dropped her dress on national tele- vision. While Margot would never admit it to anyone, she was equally intrigued and terrified by the idea of working with Bianca.
Margot nodded. He looked at her. His eyes were very nice—dark, with thick lashes. How un- expected that, after sixty years and countless lovers, Bianca had. To be clear, hiring you was her idea, not mine. Alec hesitated, his gaze shifting from hers.
