Let's just say that I'm glad that I checked this out at the library and didn't spend a cent on it. Ok, ok, that might be a little harsh as she did go through some traumatic life events. However, all I really remember from the book is her love for Barbara Streisand....snoozer.
Loved loved loved this book. I couldn't put it down which is typically the case anytime I read one of her books.
"Jodi Picoult has written a haunting tragedy of two families. The Pact is rich with suspense and compassion, and it will make people question how well they know their own children. It is an intensely moving novel."
—Luanne Rice, author of HOME FIRES
Picture Perfect: Synopsis
"There is something dark and disturbing behind the picture perfect marriage of anthropologist Cassie Barrett and her movie star husband, Alex Rivers. A study in spousal abuse that will touch your heart from the bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper."
I know, I really should have expanded my horizons and not read 2/4 from the same author, but I just couldn't help it. She sucks me in. This one started a little bit slow for me but about a third of the way in I was hooked. I don't remember seeing my family much when I read this one. Kidding. Kind of.
Never Change by Elizabeth Berg
"A self-anointed spinster at fifty-one, Myra Lipinski is reasonable content with her quiet life, her dog, Frank, and her career as a visiting nurse. But everything changes when Chip Reardon, the golden boy she adored in high school, is assigned as her new patient. Choosing to forgo treatment for an incurable illness, Chip has returned to his New England hometown to spend what time he has left. Now, Myra and Chip find themselves engaged in a poignant redefinition of roles, and a complicated dance of memory, ambivalence, and longing."
This book is a bit older. One my mom gave me that she bought at the SB Library book sale. It was an easy read. I finished it in a couple hours while I "watched" the kids run through the sprinkler and play in the sandbox.
Now my goal is to read a couple of non-fiction books. Any suggestions?
