In Episode 6, Nancy talks about another quirky book, this time a National Book Award winner and a new debut novel about a woman who stumbles upon a secret related to unsolved apothecary murders in London, two hundred years ago. Dennise shares a book that is part history, part memoir about the myths and deeply held legends of the Civil War and a novel about friendship that takes place in 1938 at a dude ranch, often called “divorce ranches” in Reno, Nevada. Peggy shares a parenting book that takes a look at our often anxious and judgmental culture of parenting and a non-fiction book that takes us inside the world of a popular HGTV house-flipping couple.
Amy shares an author who writes books perfect for parents to read-along with kids and shares a book about the energizing life of an eel. Finally, Kelly’s is all about food this month as she shares one of her two favorite cookbooks and a food themed novel about a young woman who is a senior in high school, a mother, and a culinary arts student.
