Our Book Club Reviews "Famous Women"

For our January selection, our book club decided to read about famous women. We each read a different book and reported on it at our meeting last Wednesday, January 27th. Here are the books we read:

Bride of Glory by Margaret Leighton - the story of General Custer's wife.

Eleanor, the Years Alone by Joseph P. Lash - about Eleanor Roosevelt after Franklin passed away.

Nefertiti by Michelle Moran - see my review below.

Sarah Palin: A New Kind of Leader by Joseph H. Hilley - the story of the Republican Vice Presidential nominee.

And the last selection was a biography of Louisa May Alcott. I'm not sure which book it was though.

The stories of all these women are very different, but very interesting. My favorite was General Custer's wife. She was a strong, imaginative and dedicated woman. All of these women were strong in their own ways and determined to make their worlds better places. It was so much fun seeing which woman and which book the rest of the club members chose, we decided to do it again! In March, we will each choose a mystery novel to read and share it at the end of the month.

In February, we are reading The Art of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein. We hear it was written by a dog???? Should be interesting...
