Susannah's Garden

Author: Debbie Macomber

Review by: karron, Kimberly-Little Chute Public Library

Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors. I just recently have been able to read as much as I want. So I am catching up on all her books! Susannah's Garden is great; characters you care about; interesting story line; plus I was caught by surprise with the ending!

Man on Fire

Author: A.J. Quinnell,

Review by: bpolite46, Peshtigo Branch Public Library

This is an excellent read, released in 1980.   A movie with the same title was also done, with Denzel Washington as John Creasy.   Because I enjoyed the story and the character of John Creasy in the movie, I read the book.  I was not disapointed.   The book takes place in Italy and has a different twist than the movie.   I recommend both.  This is a read that can be of interest to men, women, and older teens.   If you...

Water For Elephants

Author: Sara Gruen

Review by: bpolite46, Peshtigo Branch Public Library

This is a must read for any fan of historical fiction.   Set in the time of the "great depression",  the book describes the account of a man in a nursing home reflecting on his history.  The movie was  finely done, but I much prefered the book.   The plot and story are outstanding and the characters are believeable.   I have reccommended this book to friends and they were very...

Buried in a Bog

Author: Sheila Connolly

Review by: Penny, Shawano City-County Library

I think of Ireland as the "old country" and apparently so does Maura Donovan.  She is visiting Ireland at the last request of her grandmother.  Maura's planned short stay was extended when she takes a job at a pub and becomes involved with the locals.  This short easy read brings a great sense of Ireland and the way of life for the...

The book opens with Noah visiting his dad, who's in jail for sinking a casino boat. The owner of the lucrative business is dumping raw sewage into the ocean, and Noah's father hasn't...
