        I saw you read a book on the Amish, do you remember who the author was?

        Last year my husband had bought me a triology on Amish sisters really good and I know the author has written more books on the Amish, but I can't recall her name I think her first name was Beverly

        Thank you

            Shoo --
            The author of Rachel's Secret -- The Riverhaven Years is B.J. Hoff. Beverly Lewis has also written lots of Amish books, but not the one that I listed in post #494 on this thread http://www.msworld.org/forum/showthread.php?48421-What-are-you-reading-now&p=1386667#post1386667. It is no longer available free as a Kindle book though.

            Here was my original post on 10-12-2012:
            Recently finished:
            Rebooting My Brain: How a Freak Accident Reframed My Life. It's a true story; I could relate to some of the recovery issues that were faced by the author.

            Am now reading: Rachel's Secret: The Riverhaven Years. A fiction book set in an Amish community.

            Got both of these e-books free from amazon.com.

                    Both of the books I'm reading now are for information, rather than entertainment.
                    1. The Daniel Plan -- 40 days to a healthier life
                    - I'm a part of an In.form health maintenance group that is studying this.

                    2. The Wahl protocol
                    - I started reading it on the advice of Dr G. I'm not terribly interested. So much of the info is stuff I already know. So, I might just read the Wahl's Warrior sections to see if they will encourage and motivate me.

                      Hello everyone

                      Hello everyone. I’m an old member of MSWorld. I was posting frequently starting about 2002 or so. I’ve been reading posts and also playing games in the arcade recently. I belong to a book club now and I really enjoy it. I like socializing with our group and sometimes I like the books we read. We’re currently reading “The Library at the Edge of the World.” I lost interest at page 60 but I’ll still go to the gathering to share snacks and conversation. I’m reading another book on my Kindle, “The Keepers of the House” by Shirley Ann Grau. It won the Pulitzer Prize. It’s easier for me to read on the Kindle PaperWhite because I can prop it on the nightstand. I look forward to hearing about the books you’re reading.
                      Take care, Wiz

                        Hi wiz (ewizabeth),
                        I'm an old member here too but in recent years have stayed on only in a couple of threads.

                        I'm just finishing book 4 of the Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante, the one called "The Lost Child." I have found this story absorbing from beginning to end and I understand that it is said to be based on the author's life, in a way.

                        It's about two women who grew up together in Naples between the late 1940s and the present. The four volumes take them into their old age. One of them had a chance to become educated but the other, just as capable and maybe more so, didn't get that chance. It's an interesting comparison of two different lives that keep intersecting over the decades.

                          Wanted to add this NF title since I quoted the author in a recent thread.

                          Viktor Frankl / MAN'S SEARCH FOR MEANING: An introduction to Logotherapy

                          The book focuses on the meaning of human existence as well as on man's search for meaning. It is eye opening in many ways and worth the time invested.

                              "No One Wants You" by Celine Roberts

                              Comment


                                I'm not a particular fan of romance novels, but given the current circumstances I pulled out an old favorite: "Morning Glory" by Lavyrle Spencer.

                                It’s set in Georgia just before the start of WWII. She’s a pregnant widow with 2 small children, living on a run-down farm outside the town that calls her “Crazy Elly”. He grew up an orphan, is fresh out of Huntsville for a manslaughter charge, and gets fired from his latest job because of it. He’s only intending to do some work in exchange for food, but within a couple months they realize that they’re happy together and get married at the local courthouse.

                                The basic premise is just two lonely people who’ve never received much in the way of love, now working together to build a home and finally share their feelings. Will joins the Marines, comes home a wounded hero, and then they face the most trying period of their lives when he’s charged with murder.

                                I like it because the book explains why they don't trust people and shows their relationship developing over time.
