I did it my friends!
You picked, I read and now I will tell you what I thought.
Earlier this month I joined in a monthly meme hosted by Michelle at Because Reading is Better than Real Life, in which we put up 3 books on the first Saturday of the month, and they you readers, vote on which one I should read, I read and then I write a blog post on the last Saturday of the month.
So....here I am!
The book was "The Time Between" by Karen White.
Thirty-four-year-old Eleanor Murray is consumed with guilt for causing the accident that paralyzed her sister—and for falling in love with her sister’s husband. But when her boss offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, Eleanor accepts, hoping this good deed will help atone for her mistakes.
On the barrier island of Edisto, Eleanor bonds with Helena over their mutual love of music. Drawing the older woman out of her depression, Eleanor learns of her life in Hungary, with her sister, before and during World War II. She hears tales of passion and heartache, defiance and dangerous deception. And when the truth of Helena and her sister’s actions comes to light, Eleanor may finally allow herself to move past guilt and to embrace the song that lies deep in her heart…
Thank you friends!
Last year I stayed as far away from Women's Fiction as I could. I'm not sure why, because I've discovered that I really love it.
This book was no exception. I really enjoyed it. I've only ever read 2 other Karen White books and while this was not my favorite (Long Time Gone was), it was right up there. There was mystery a bit of romance (never a bad thing) and just a really good story line.
The story was told in different Points of View---and I always like that. I just feel I can better put myself into their shoes.
It's a reflective read, which I also always like.
But besides that it was a good read, this meme was really fun for me!
I can't wait till next week for you guys to pick again.
And since Women's Fiction is one of my new favorite genre's, I am adding this to my Women's Fiction Reading Challenge, hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.
