What are you reading these days?
You know that I love to read. My usual author picks are Nora Roberts, Elin Hilderbrand, Susan Mallery, Danielle Steel, Robyn Carr, Susan Wiggs, Kristin Hannah, etc. But, for Christmas, I got this book, The Life She Was Given, by Ellen Marie Wiseman.
I had never heard of this author before. Her name and this book appeared on a favorite books list that I had seen before the holidays. It sounded like an interesting story, and I was happy to see it under the Christmas tree.
This story tells the tale of Lilly, in the 1930’s, and the tragic events of her life, as well as Julia, in the 1950’s. The weaving of this tale of how these two are connected is incredible. So many sad things happen in this book, but, I couldn’t put it down. I had to keep reading to find out what happened next. I love books like that!

Looking forward to more great book finds, as well as more authors to add to my favorites list.
