JOSEPHINE B. TRILOGY

The Josephine B. Trilogy by [Gulland, Sandra]
What is it about some books that demand our time, that demand we read and read until we can’t keep our eyes open any longer? I read a broad variety of genres, enjoy many writing styles, the works of authors from many countries and, because the books I read are so varied, I’ve never found a definitive answer. Whatever the magic, whatever the lure of this book or that, I feel compelled to make suggestions and recommendations to fellow readers.

Modern medicine’s greatest failure

Modern medicine’s greatest failure
“Help!” “What?” I ask anxiously. “The school just sent an email. Head lice. In four classes.” “Again!?” “Yes. Will you help?” This will make three times in as many months. We could solve the problem by shaving their heads, but I refrain from making that suggestion. “Of course I’ll help.” Treatment is not something one can do alone and as she and her daughter are always cuddling, we’ll have to do both of them. Step one: Buy wine. Step two: Apply the treatment—kills the lice and nits in 58 seconds, they claim. Step three: After 30 minutes comb the hair with the special lice comb provided.

Smash all the Windows

Smash all the Windows
Smash all the Windows by Jane Davis For the first time in my reading life, I finished a book, turned back to page one and started reading it again. The story and characters so compelling, the story telling so complex, complete, and often subtle—I simply couldn’t just move on to another book. But the more urgent need for the immediate reread came from the emotions evoked. Tragedies happen all the time. People are killed—floods, fires, airplane crashes, auto accidents, tsunamis…. They happen far away to people we don’t know. We, on the other hand, are tucked away in our safe little corner of the world, cocooned by family and friends, smug in our security, subconsciously believing “that will ne...
