Vineyard Chill is the final book written by the late Philip R. Craig. He is the author of the J. W. Jackson mystery series set on Martha’s Vineyard. Reading his stories makes me want to visit the island during my next trip to Cape Cod.
The Edge of Winter by Luanne Rice is a work of fiction with reference to an actual event, the sinking of a German U-boat off the New England coast during WWII. A good story about family, it piqued my interest to learn more about this part of our history.
I like the easy listening music of Phil Coulter. He is a pianist and composer from Northern Ireland. His music just makes me feel good. Check out Serenity or Forgotten Dreams to sample his uplifting songs. You can also hear audio clips posted on his website.
Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World is a true story by Vicki Myron. It’s the tale of an abandoned kitten left in the book drop of a small Iowa library and how he affected the lives of the staff, patrons, and even people worldwide for many years.
In The Friday Night Knitting Club, a single mother works to raise her daughter and run a yarn shop in Manhattan. Knitting is her passion, salvation, and livelihood. Over the years her regular customers have become her friends, and the Friday Night Knitting Club was formed. Among the members are a wealthy older woman who wants to fill a void in her life, a daughter with interest in the culinary arts, a best friend who returns to seek forgiveness, and an absent father who slowly re-enters his family’s lives. When the main character discovers that she has ovarian cancer, the members rally round to help.
The story of how this varied group comes to share their talents and influence each other reminds me of the sisterhood from the movie Steel Magnolias. It is interesting and pleasant reading.
