I read A Tree Grows a year or so ago, LOVE it, would read it again! really, love it.
Recently read 2 other books by Ursula Hegi, she is a wonderful writer. I know nothing of the book you mentioned, but would be inclined to read it (it is a novel? not essays/shortstory?)
The Space Between us sounds interesting as well.

Again, I need a few weeks though, I have a few other obligations to read!

Lola, THe worst thing I've done is a novel. I recently read "the visions of Emma Blau" and LOVED it. I have also read Stones from the river years ago and loved that one.

Hi. I put a post on this thread on March 01, 2009. I am still interested in the book discussion. The reason why I haven't been able to follow up on my earlier post is because I am currently 'mothering' a beautiful litter of orphaned kittens. (That's another story dealing with irresponsible pet owners). We took mom from a pair of idiots who were notorious for not having enough pet food to feed their animals. Mom was emaciated and we took her to try to help her but we ran out of time. She gave birth to six kitties but ran out of milk two weeks after we got her. (She was all bones by then). Not her fault. We've been looking after them since then. Unfortunately, my reading has suffered because of the added demands.

However, I do part time volunteering at a local thrift store and find an amazing assortment of books so if I can still join I would be very happy and this time I promise to check this thread several times every day so that I can keep up with the group

I hope things are going well with your kittens! Kittens are so much fun .
It has been very quiet here.
Lola, let us know when you are done with the other books you are reading for book groups.
I am ready to start a new book soon..... we haven't heard from anyone else yet... so please, don't be shy !

I just received The Shack Wm Young & Fire In the Blood Irene Nemirovsky

as soon as I'm finished with my fluff book, The Red Hat Club Rides Again I will start one of the above.

In the wings is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn excellent suggestion Lola, I saw the movie years ago but somehow think the book will be much better...along with that I pre ordered Home Safe Elizabeth Berg not due to ship until 05/04

It looks like "A tree grows in Brooklyn" is something we want to read then? Shall we set a date for mid April then? Or late April?

My ordered copy is tied in with a book that isn't due to release until 05/02
Then I'll be in Cabo until 05/07 I can always jump in the discussion later

I should have split the shipment but didn't even think about it

Sorry Kate, we don't take "oh, I'll be in Cabo" as an excuse! unless, of course, if it were me. But that is a different story...

I'll put a hold on that book at the library. Or see if I can find a copy at our local book store. Thanks for letting me back.
