I recently finished this poignant story of a woman who is a mother, wife and daughter, and defining herself in each area. The characters were rich in style and I identified with so many things in the story.
I listened to this one in the car, and the narrator is absolutely delightful. Her enunciation and tone are captivating.

If you enjoyed Cold Mountain, or perhaps even if you didn't, you'll like Thirteen Moons. This is not a fast read. Rather, it is ponderous. But Frazier's beautiful writing and amazing command of dialect and speech pattern make the book thoroughly enjoyable, like a lazy gray day at the beach, if not riveting. Oh yeah, and since this is a Chick Lit blog, it does have a love story.

"Sweetheart" is the sequel to "Heartsick" (see below). I liked the sequel much better than the intial novel - which is a real switch from the normal. This is a sicko crime thriller, and the ending left the door open for Book 3 since the main characters are alive at the end and lots of things are unresolved.

I just finished this book set in the era of Babe Ruth. Lots of information regarding changes in labor practices at the time and the famous Boston Police Department strike. The characters are well developed and I enjoyed. The books was written by the author of Mystic River.
