Lonesome Dove: A Novel
Simon & Schuster, 2010
Don't think I've ever enjoyed a book more
The plot? Post civil war era ex-rangers leave a small Texas border town and drive a herd of cattle to Montana. That's pretty much it. So, why 900+ pages? Because, McMurtry develops his wonderful characters so beautifully that you feel you've known each of them for years. He takes you on the drive to Montana through unexplored country, and you feel as if you too are seeing it for the first ...

Buy the Book
I bought this book to take on vacation and I could not rest until I finished it! I was up reading it in the wee hours of the night... the second day, I finished it! I was moved by Angela's accounts of her last night with her step-mother and the various ways that this crime affected her family. I read a lot of true crime books and I have to tell you, some of her details were so vivid and ...
White Doves at Morning: A Novel
Simon & Schuster, 2002
I have been reading James Lee Burke's books for the past year. Gone through them like a great meal. In general they blow my mind. Burke combines fascinating characters that motivate interesting plots with prose that whistles off the page. Often in Burke's books there is either references to the Civil War or actual reminisces. Finally a full blown novel of the War. Every page feels like Burke ...
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Dover Thrift Editions)
There is nothing like a great narator, and Tom Parker is one, to tell this great tale. Mr. Parker's voice sounds just the way I believe Mark Twain would have told it.
Wolf and the Dove

The wolf and the dove
Read it over and over. Probably my favourite book. Was Great. Happy with all aspects of their service.
The Plague of Doves
HarperCollins e-books, 2008
The Plague of Doves is easily the most beautiful piece of fiction that I've read all year. The unique voices of the narrators bring this haunting story to life, with dynamic characters that leap off the page and into the reader's heart. Using broad, bold strokes, Erdrich paints a vivid picture showing the way a single brutal act can echo through the generations, effecting everything and everyone ...

Robin L. Graham
One of The Great Sailing Love Stories of all Time
I was first introduced to "The Dove" by finding the VHS tape of the movie in a sailing store. I noticed that the move came from a book of the same title so I bought the book. I then noticed that National Geographic actually did the series of articles during Robin's 5 year adventure so I went to old book stores and found the three issues (Oct. 1968, April 1969, Oct. 1970, with a short followup ...

His colonial viewpoint stands in sharp contrast with his `moral' attitude. American Dream B. Franklin is the perfect example of the fulfillment of the American Dream.

The Lonesome Dove Series

Larry McMurty's four- novel saga of the adventures of a group of Texas Rangers is a must- have for not just any Westerns fan, but for anyone who appreciates superbly written literature. LONESOME DOVE, chronologically the third part of the series, was the winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and you'll be amply rewarded for investing your time in reading this fantastic historical epic. ...
The Wings of the Dove (mobi)
To Betray Others Is To Betray Yourself
By the time Henry James had written WINGS OF THE DOVE in 1902, most of his best work was behind him. In many of these novels and short stories, James had shown a fascination with the theme of the new world American bumping into the old world European. Just as James himself seemed unable to label himself definitively as one or the other, so do many of his characters muck about with some Americans ...
The Sign of the Dove
After reading Mary Occhio's book I feel that I have learned more about myself. I've always said that my cousin and I were identical twins separated by birth. We've always been best friends and really know how each other feel. She is definitely a soul mate-not a romantic soul mate, but a soul that travels with me. Read her book and you will understand what I mean about soul mates. For the ...

A moving story of people bearing their burdens in the name of their Savior. The 14th century monastery setting appeals to those in the Catholic faith but in no way excludes Protestant or readers from other backgrounds.
THE MERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD
36 reviews, 2009
The Wonder of Getting Lost in a Story
I read this book when I was in fifth grade and it was given to me as a homework assignment by my tutor. The assignment was 1 chapter for the week but I finished it over the weekend. The look on my tutor's face when I told him I finished it is something I'll always treasure. Howard Pyle's book is the first book that I got lost in. The story sucked me in and Robin's adventures were my ...

This is the 19 book in this wonderful series and it is no wonder that there is a strong cult following for Sister Fidelma and for Ancient Ireland as portrayed by Mr. Tremayne. These books are set in and around the British Isles. The time for this particular book is 670 AD. The book is set in the province of Britany and Sister Fidelma and her husband Eadulf are returning home to Cashel in ...

Out of the three remaining excerpts in this category, I enjoyed this one the most and hope it will be the winner. It's lively, descriptive and well written. I could definitely read more of this book so hoping to see it ...
