Books of the Month: July 2013

Books by Ralph Fletcher: As I am preparing for another year of home school, I have been reading many of Ralph Fletcher’s books of poetry for children. Have You Been to the Beach Lately? , Moving Day , Relatively Speaking are excellent examples of his storytelling through theme and poetry. I am looking forward to studying his poems and writing style with my kids this school year.

In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner by Elizabeth George

Another compelling crime story starring Inspector Lynley and Barbara Havers!

All Roads Lead to Austen by Amy Elizabeth Smith

Amy Elizabeth Smith’s memoir of her sabbatical provides insight into much-loved Jane Austen classics through several organized and ad hoc book clubs in six Latin American countries. Like the author, I had many assumptions about what her journey would be. No doubt, we are both glad we were wrong! I absolutely loved “traveling” these roads, especially with my own book club!

The Invisible Friend by Lois Walfrid Johnson

Bree’s story continues as she searches for a way to escape Norway and for an invisible friend.
