A Day Late and a Dollar Short

By Terry McMillan

What an awesome book! From the moment I began reading the book I was captivated by every line. As Vy Price, the matriarch in the novel, I also have four adult children. Their strengths and their weaknesses were so well written-it was as if I was there. Terry McMillan's writing allows one to 'obtain more friends!' ~ Reviewed by Patricia B. on 07/28/2011

Solomon's Oak

By Jo-Ann Mapson

A book that reminds us all that all who are broken or lost can find their way back or their path with love, genuine care, and attention. This is my time reading a Mapson book and I am hooked. The ending wasn't a fairytale ending but realistic which made me question why do I desire the perfect unrealistic outcome vs. the imperfectly perfect realistic outcome; something that can encourage me in my daily life! She really puts the mirror in your face in this great read. ~ Reviewed by Donna P. on 07/28/2011

Little Bee

By Chris Cleave

Sheds light on a subject that many in the "modern world" don't care to learn about. Ending and some chapters were a tad underdeveloped. ~ Reviewed by Christina G. on 07/28/2011

Getting to Happy

By Terry McMillan

Getting to Happy is so realistic. The lives of the four friends chronicled is very easy to relate to. I was able to relate to events in their lives to events in my life. Terry McMillan has once again proved her ability to enchant readers' imaginations. ~ Reviewed by Patricia B. on 07/20/2011

The Help

By Kathryn Stockett

The Help was very interesting. I learned a lot about domestic help. However, there were parts that weren't very interesting. Overall, I truly enjoyed the book. ~ Reviewed by Patricia B. on 07/20/2011

Disappearing Acts

By Terry McMillan

Terry McMillan did an absolute marvelous job of portraying human relationships. The relationship between the couple became strained-once she became pregnant. Disappearing Acts is definitely a realistic story. ~ Reviewed by Patricia B. on 07/20/2011
