    I picked up The Kitchen House at the library, based on your recommendation. It is a wonderful read so far.

    Thank you!

    I haven't read these books but did read Cane River by Lalita Tademy. She wrote it as a novel combining information she found in researching her family tree with other components of life at the historic time it took place. It too was a good read.

    Thanks! It was my turn to buy a book for my Kindle friends to share. This will be a good one. We have a shared Kindle account and every month or so each one buys a new listing to share. We don't add the free books, mostly the best sellers or books with high ratings from fellow readers. The book can only be read by one person at a time so if I buy it I read it then put it on the account to share. The next person who wants to read it will and then put it back in the cloud to share and so forth. It works great as there are always new books on the account to choose from.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Looking forward to this book. Just finished "The Invention of Wings" this afternoon - very interesting book - easy read.- hard to imagine the cruelty that existed in the 1800's Southern States. I will begin the "The Kitchen House" next... I appreciate the recommadations here.

    I love reading happy books with nice characters in them. Why waste time reading depressing books? You're suggestions sound very nice. Thank you. Brett
