Thank you for the recommendations! I seem to like what you like!

I'm actually relieved to see what you've written about the Backman boos (or books). I know that his writing is very popular but I have tried a couple of his books and have had such hard slogging that I have given up. There are too many good books to read to stick with ones that are unsatisfying.

The Last Year of the War is one I will want to read for sure. When my Mom was a teenager, there was a camp not far from her place where they kept interred captured German soldiers so this will be interesting. Thanks for your reviews.

Thank you so much for the reviews! I'm so in need of another good read at this point!


Always enjoy your book reviews. I'm adding The Last Year of the War and The Searcher to my "to read" list.
I didn't comment yesterday, but I like your red houses with the different prints in the barn blocks. More interesting than the solid white. I've added those patterns to my "to do" list too!


'The Last Year of the War' sounds like a must-read! It is an important part of US history & your book review inspires me to read about the German camps. There was a Japanese internment camp outside our town during WWII which is now an interpretive center & museum. The fiber arts group I belong to put together an art quilt exhibit that is now a traveling exhibit & a book depicting life at Heart Mountain Internment Camp.


You are an excellent source of book recommendations. I read The Searcher last month, loved it! I just put some more on my to-be-read list.

I'm reading The Last Year of the War right now. My husband read it first and loved it too.


Thanks so much for your book reviews. Always appreciate the suggestions!


I want to read The Searcher! I visited Ireland in 2018 and fell in love with the country and its people. I hope to revisit some of the places I saw through this book! Thanks for this recommendation.
