  1. I highly recommend Clara and Mr. Tiffany. It is an interesting look at the 1900’s in New York City. It explores the unrecognized work of women in the arts.

  7. I’m Audrey’s daughter, Rikki, from Baltimore. I know it’s an older book, but I recently read How Green Was My Valley and LOVED it. A great coming of age story set in Wales during the Industrial Revolution. If you haven’t read it yet it’s definitely worth a read. The movie is also great too!

  9. My book club read Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks and I was surprised how much I liked this book. As a historical fiction based on the 17th century plague in a small village outside of London, this story is fascinating.

    I just finished ‘Wicked’ and I enjoyed it because his writing paints such vivid pictures in my head. On the other hand, I’m not really interested in reading the 2nd or 3rd parts of this trilogy – one was enough.
