Letters from SkyeLetters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a book club selection. I'm glad I read it. Interesting way to tell a very small story. Well written and I would say finely crafted. Covers a span of history I find interesting. I wanted to love it and at times I did but parts were just dreary and sad. Even the parts that may have been joyous were tinged with the shadow of infidelity. I guess the point was that we don't control who we love but that may be too simple in the real world....

The Sins of the Father (The Clifton Chronicles, #2)The Sins of the Father by Jeffrey Archer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

These books are wonderful, they ruin my days. I just want to read them. The stories are beautifully crafted and the characters come alive, mature and often behave in ways you might not have expected. The span of history is wonderfully presented. I just can't wait for the next one.

Only Time Will Tell (The Clifton Chronicles, #1)Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a marvelous book. Jeffrey Archer is a magnificent story teller and I was enthralled from page one. The setting, characters and story unfold in front of you and become more interesting as you read. It is such a wonderful glimpse at life in England before WWII. Knowing that this book is part of a series of six made it even more fun to read. I can't wait to tackle the next one. This is a great book!

Dishonorable Intentions (Stone Barrington #38)Dishonorable Intentions by Stuart Woods
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Stuart Woods could not write enough books to satisfy me. This one is just like the others, great, unbelievable situations. Food, women and wine! Wonderful settings with characters that seem to get better with each iteration. I don't pretend this is great mystery or fabulous literature, it is just pain fun to read. Can't put it down.
