I haven't been posting here for such a long time, and I was surprised to see that's it's been more than a year
A few reasons ... after I broke my arm, I was typing with one finger on my left hand, but mostly I didn't feel like writing a lot ... even though I've been reading a lot. My blogger friend, Nan, in New Hampshire gave me the idea to group some books in one post and just write a short synopsis.
So here's my first group. There will have to be quite a few posts and quite a few groups to catch up
Finding me in France
by Bobbi French
Creative Book Publishing 2012
She left her successful medical career in Newfoundland and bought a one-way ticket to a small village in Burgundy. The story is an entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny account of her experience.
An accompanying blog.... follows the daily adventures in France, then a move to Switzerland, and again to Vancouver Island.
Out and About in Victoria's Neighbourhoods
by Anny Scoones
TouchWood Editions 2013
with illustrations by Robert Amos
I wrote about Anny's previous 'Home" books here a few years ago, her life and adventures on Glamorgan Farm in North Saanich, BC. After selling the farm, Anny bought a small house in James Bay
Now my two favorite authors are living in Victoria, just 30 minutes from where I live. Maybe I'll meet them on the street some day.
by Alan Brennert
Kindle Book 2009
read in 2012/2013
I added this book to this group because I lived there also ... for three years, ten years ago.
This book follows the life of a young 'picture bride', immigrating from Korea in 1914. Historical fiction at its best
next up Molokai by the same author
