Shadows on the Rock

By Willa Cather

A neat little book about early settlement in Quebec. Interesting to think about what people did back then, how they lived, and what they thought. Of course, it was written in the 1930's, which adds another historical dimension. [229 pp.]

Now is the time to open your heart

By Alice Walker

Actually, the time to update this blog was more than 3 weeks ago, when I finished reading this book. It was so long ago, I can only comment on my general impression of the book, which was pretty good. I didn't expect this kind of almost new-agey feel to an Alice Walker book, but it did have some of that, although not in an obnoxious way. [240 pp.]
