The Girl in the Picture by Kerry Barret

Four Stars

The Girl in the Picture by Kerry Barret tells the story of a  present-day mystery writer moving to a small, England town only to discover an unsolved murder surrounding the family who lived in her house in 1855. Quite simply, this is a good, clean read. I finished the book in about two days, so be prepared by getting other tasks done first!

The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Five Stars

Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth is the definition of an epic epoch. Not only is this book centered around a specific time period–The Middle Ages–during the building of the cathedrals in Europe, it is a stunning volume of intrigue, scandal, and history-based story-telling. Do not be discouraged by the almost 1,000 page length. This book is one that consumes as you consume it.

This book contains graphic language, violence, and sexual content. Be discerning.
