I just could not get into the people in this book-- and it was a bit of a disappointment as I had been looking forward to reading it. its a Kennedy book -- but just not up to usual standards.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed this read, 20 May 2011
This review is from: The Beauty Chorus (Hardcover)
I was eager to read this story as I think I have read about 99% of all books on the war... the rich girl is a good one, but there are some weaknesses building her story-- but not enough to make this bad-- and I read it all with pleasure -- I can't believe women ( me included) used to let men get away with being pigs but we did. TG things have changed. all in all, this was a really pleasant book-- only the last few pages --yes, the last few-- are a bit of a stretch..and I wish it had a different ending... just a bit too pat and , well, I don't want to give it away so read it and decide for yourself.

2.0 out of 5 stars does not get my attention or my love, 20 May 2011
This review is from: The Summer Without Men (Hardcover)
I am sorry-- I just can't enjoy this book--hard to pick up to read and easy to put down -- do not love the characters and can't figure out the reason. I did ( almost)love the 5 old ladies, but this author gave them a bit of salt but no pepper ( spice). I am sure this author is popular, but this book does not show me why.
