Like visiting an old friend

I finished reading Love Letters by Debbie Macomber this weekend and it felt like I was visiting an old friend. I say that because with an old friend you know what to expect, you are always entertained and rarely disappointed. Love Letters is the third book in the Rose Harbor series (a spin-off of her Cedar Cove series) and is just as good as the two previous books. As usual, Macomber creates interesting and complicated characters that you grow to care about. Her writing truly touches your emotions, happy and sad, and that is a wonderful gift not all authors have.

A big story in a little book

Silver Thaw by Catherine Anderson might be a small paperback book but there is nothing small about the story within its covers. It gives a moving and terrifying view into the world of abuse as it follows a woman and her child as they escape from an abusive marriage and their struggle to survive without being found. You will be hooked from the first few chapters as little by little they both learn to trust and finally live and love again.
