Usually I have my Nightstand post prepared ahead of time, but the last Tuesday of the month snuck up on me! So here goes:
Since last time I have completed:
Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson, reviewed here. A task force studying cold cases begins work in a small town with two heartbreaking cases. The suspense is in the puzzle-solving of examining leads and finding connections. I always enjoy Dee.
The Ringmaster’s Wife by Kristy Cambron, reviewed here, traces the path of two women on different trajectories who end up a part of the Ringling Brothers circus family. One was a real person, one was fictional. An enjoyable read.
Uncle Tom or New Negro?: African Americans Reflect on Booker T. Washington and UP FROM SLAVERY 100 Years Later edited by Rebecca Carroll, reviewed here. I stumbled across this while looking for Washington’s Up From Slavery. This book contains that text as well as commentary from 20 modern-day African Americans on Washington and his legacy. I had no idea until seeing this book that there was any controversy about him. Quite an enlightening read.
I’m currently reading:
A Place of Quiet Rest by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up by Jamie Janosz
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Snapshot by Lis Wiehl
The Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay
Waiting for Peter by Elizabeth Musser.
Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More by Karen Swallow Prior and Eric Metaxas
Eight Women of Faith by Michael A. G. Haykin
Or any of a number of choices from my reading plans for the year.
I think that about does it for now. What are you reading?
