Best Kept Secret (The Clifton Chronicles, #3)Best Kept Secret by Jeffrey Archer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The master of surprise endings. Great to know there is another of these, in fact several more. Archer develops characters and story lines that are intriguing and eminently believable. His characters don't seem to get old, they seem to mature and become multi-faceted. I am totally enjoying the series.

Circling the SunCircling the Sun by Paula McLain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a selection for my book club and I enjoyed it very much. I must say its like a great meal or wine. Nuanced and subtle. I took a long time to read it because it was delicious. The writing is beautiful and thought provoking. The story is bigger and broader than a single person or continent. The author manages to reveal the complex nature of the character in ways that I found universal to people around me and myself. None of us are simple and our actions affect all of those around us. These complex relationships were so beautifully shown in a tender and loving way.
