Personal Opinion:

I think I signed on to read and review the book as more of a curiosity because I wanted to know how French christmas was different than the stereotypical portrayal of American and Dickensian christmas. I also think I was curious how I would feel about the stories considering that I don't celebrate christmas (closest is New Years in Russian style which is similar to christmas style as I learned when I came to America.) What I found out is interesting: modern stories like the first one as well as one by Dominique Fabre and last one by Irene Nemirovsky for me they are far more enjoyable than the old stories by Alphonse Daudet and Francoise Coppee who apparently were hypocrites in their beliefs towards those who are not christians. Most of the 14 stories are dominated by Daudet and Coppee. I liked learning about the way French celebrate christmas and seeing something other than British or American, but I do wish that the stories would have been in more of a modern vein rather than the 1800s vein.

About My Dear Hamilton: A Novel of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton (Coming 4.3.2018):

Wife, Widow, and Warrior in Alexander Hamilton’s Quest to Form a More Perfect Union

From the New York Times bestselling authors of America’s First Daughter comes the epic story of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton—a revolutionary woman who, like her new nation, struggled to define herself in the wake of war, betrayal, and tragedy. Haunting, moving, and beautifully written, Dray and Kamoie used thousands of letters and original sources to tell Eliza’s story as it’s never been told before—not just as the wronged wife at the center of a political sex scandal—but also as a founding mother who shaped an American legacy in her own right.

A general’s daughter…

Coming of age on the perilous frontier of revolutionary New York, Elizabeth Schuyler champions the fight for independence. And when she meets Alexander Hamilton, Washington’s penniless but passionate aide-de-camp, she’s captivated by the young officer’s charisma and brilliance. They fall in love, despite Hamilton’s bastard birth and the uncertainties of war.

A founding father’s wife...

But the union they create—in their marriage and the new nation—is far from perfect. From glittering inaugural balls to bloody street riots, the Hamiltons are at the center of it all—including the political treachery of America’s first sex scandal, which forces Eliza to struggle through heartbreak and betrayal to find forgiveness.

The last surviving light of the Revolution…

When a duel destroys Eliza’s hard-won peace, the grieving widow fights her husband’s enemies to preserve Alexander’s legacy. But long-buried secrets threaten everything Eliza believes about her marriage and her own legacy. Questioning her tireless devotion to the man and country that have broken her heart, she’s left with one last battle—to understand the flawed man she married and imperfect union he could never have created without her…

G881 Book Review of Whirligig by Richard Buxton


Name of Book: Whirligig

Author: Richard Buxton

ISBN: 9780995769304

Publisher: Self published

Type of book: secrets, crush, promise, war, Civil War, England, parliament, union army vs rebel army, 1862-1864, Tennessee, plantation, whirligig

Year it was published: 2017

Summary:

Shire leaves his home and his life in Victorian England for the sake of a childhood promise, a promise that pulls him into the bleeding heart of the American Civil War. Lost in the bloody battlefields of the West, he discovers a second home for his loyalty.


Clara believes she has escaped from a predictable future of obligation and privilege, but her new life in the Appalachian Hills of Tennessee is decaying around her. In the mansion of Comrie, long hidden secrets are being slowly exhumed by a war that creeps ever closer.


The first novel from multi-award winning short-story writer Richard Buxton, Whirligig is at once an outsider’s odyssey through the battle for Tennessee, a touching story of impossible love, and a portrait of America at war with itself. Self-interest and conflict, betrayal and passion, all fuse into a fateful climax.

Characters:

Main characters in the book include Shire, an Englishman and a schoolmaster's son who seems to harbor a crush on Clara and who has made promise to her. He seems to elevate Clara's memories and will do whatever he can for her. Clara is Shire's crush and is in upper class. She moves to America and gets married to a distant cousin Taylor and tries her best to fit into the southern society. (Unfortunately she is not as well drawn as I hoped.) She also is resourceful and a quick learner. Taylor is Clara's husband and eventually becomes Shire's adversary. Taylor has had a tragic upbringing in terms of childhood and he is best described as extremely cruel and warped. Other secondary characters include Taylor's mother, then there is Shire's friend Tuck who had his own secrets and few other people in the army as well as Taylor's slaves.

Theme:

War is a messy business

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from what seems to be everyone's point of view, from Shire to Clara and so forth. I felt overwhelmed when it came to remembering characters because there are a lot of them in the book, and my lack of knowledge when it came to military aspects didn't help either, although the author has done his best with that.

Author Information:
(From HFVBT)

About the Author

Richard lives with his family in the South Downs, Sussex, England. He completed an MA in Creative Writing at Chichester University in 2014. He has an abiding relationship with America, having studied at Syracuse University, New York State, in the late eighties. His short stories have won the Exeter Story Prize, the Bedford International Writing Competition and the Nivalis Short Story Award. Whirligig is his first novel and the opening book of Shire’s Union trilogy. Current projects include the second book, The Copper Road, as well as preparing to publish a collection of short stories.

Opinion:

For some odd reason, I though that the book would be similar to Gone with the Wind, at least in terms of showing the civilian life of civil war. However, that wasn't the case. I also gathered that the focus would be a lot more on love story between Shire and Clara, and while that was some of the case, it was only a small part of the novel. Most of the novel was focused on battles and on daily life in the army whether it has ugly or beautiful moments. What I found myself liking about the book is that the American civil war is shown from a foreigner's point of view, and someone who has fought for the union rather than the south. I also liked a little on how it filled some blanks when it came to Gone with the Wind (in particular the discussion Scarlett and Rhett had about England and whether or not it will help the South.) I applaud the author for trying to create a messy and realistic picture of the war, and I do wish that I could have better understood the military terms and what was going on because the military aspects of the book really went over my head, unfortunately.

G900 Book Review of betrayal at iga by Susan Spann

Name of Book: Betrayal at Iga

Author: Susan Spann

ISBN: 978-1-63388-277-5

Publisher: Seventh Street Books

Part of a Series: Hiro Hattori Mysteries #5

Type of book: 1565. Shinobi clans, shinobi culture, Koga, Iga, deceit, murder, mystery, betrayal, believing not seeing, foreigner, religion, mute girl, family, high stakes, Japan, alliance, high stakes

Year it was published: 2017

Summary:

Autumn, 1565: After fleeing Kyoto, master ninja Hiro Hattori and Portuguese Jesuit Father Mateo take refuge with Hiro s ninja clan in the mountains of Iga province. But when an ambassador from the rival Koga clan is murdered during peace negotiations, Hiro and Father Mateo must find the killer in time to prevent a war between the ninja clans.

With every suspect a trained assassin, and the evidence incriminating not only Hiro s commander, the infamous ninja Hattori Hanz, but also Hiro s mother and his former lover, the detectives must struggle to find the truth in a village where deceit is a cultivated art. As tensions rise, the killer strikes again, and Hiro finds himself forced to choose between his family and his honor.
"

Characters:

The main characters include Hiro and Father Mateo. Hiro comes from a Shinobi clan and has had a Shinobi upbringing. He is observant, calm within the storm and often trusts his own instincts over different evidence. He is also extremely knowledgeable and is seen as the best shinobi from Iga Ryu. Father Mateo is Hiro's charge and is from Portugal. Father Mateo has a big heart when it comes to accepting cases and in this book he is more of take charge rather than Hiro. While he is still struggling with culture shock, he often takes advantage of his being a foreigner and uses it for Hiro's benefit. Hiro's grandmother, mother and former lover also play big roles as well as his cousin who is the leader and the Koga Ryu emissaries and even a surprising mute girl.

Theme:

Things are not what they seem

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from Hiro's point of view. This is a much stronger book than the previous four, and the characters are far better drawn out as well. The author has done a good job at creating a gripping read with a complex plot and wonderful characters. In here she isn't afraid to explore her characters and to conclude a tale from Hiro's past as well as introduce potential new characters in which I hope to see in the future installments.

Author Information:
(From the book)

Susan Spann is the author of four previous novels in the Shinobi Mystery series: Claws of the Cast, Blade of the Samurai, Flask of the Drunken Master, and THe Ninja's Daughter. She has a degree in Asian studies and a lifelong love of Japanese history and culture. When not writing or practicing law, she raises seahorses and rare corals in her marine aquarium.

Opinion:

Imagine: Peace negotiations between Koga and Iga shinobi clans who were previously rivals, a dinner set in enemy territory and a foreign priest with his shinobi helper who is part of Iga clan; what could possibly go wrong? Apparently, plenty, and murder and betrayal are the least of the detectives' problems. With each successive novel, the author gets better and better at character growth because I liked seeing how much Hiro and Father Mateo changed and grew from being around each other, and I also enjoyed seeing Father Mateo being more helpful, understanding and more in charge. I feel that previous mysteries put a lot of pressure on Hiro to solve the case, but in this mystery, both Hiro and Father Mateo are equals. I was thrilled as well to learn more about Hiro's past, and even finally understand why Hiro seems to detest women. I hope to see more of Kiku in future installments,and yes I am excited for 2018 and to learn about another cultural aspect of Japan.

This was given to me for an honest review

G888 Bonjour Kale; a Memoir of Paris, Love & Recipes

Title of the book: Bonjour Kale; a Memoir of Paris, Love & Recipes

Author: Kristen Beddard

Publisher: Sourcebooks

Publishing Date: 2016

ISBN: 978-1-4926-3004-3

Summary:

A memoir of love, life, and recipes from the woman who brought kale to the City of Light

The story of how one expat woman left her beloved behind when she moved to France-her beloved kale, that is. Unable to find le chou kale anywhere upon moving to the City of Light with her new husband, and despite not really speaking French, Kristen Beddard launched a crusade to single-handedly bring kale to the country of croissants and cheese. Infused with Kristen's recipes and some from French chefs, big and small (including Michelin star chef Alain Passard) Bonjour Kale is a humorous, heartfelt memoir of how Kristen, kale, and France collide.

Personal Opinion:

Where I live, I imagine that finding cuisine or specific type of food is as easy as one-two-three. I even take it for granted that if I desire to find a specific type meat or tea, I can easily drive to an ethnic market and buy it there, thus its difficult for me to imagine that prior to 2017, France didn't have any kale. Unlike the author, I only knew kale because it became popular recently and even then I just knew the name; I didn't know it was a cabbage (there are things I don't know) and I also had no idea that kale was so well known prior to 2017. Back to the book, the author has done an amazing job researching things about kale and introducing it to those who are new to the craze as well as making it an exciting fish out of water story about a young woman who has moved to France and the daily struggles she experiences while living life there be it returning things, language barriers or learning the norms of France.

G860 Book Review of A Twisted Vengenance by Candace Robb


Name of Book: A Twisted Vengeance

Author: Candace Robb

ISBN: 978-1-68177-452-7

Publisher: Pegasus Crime

Part of a Series: Kate Clifford Mysteries

Type of book: 1399, England, daily life, mother/daughter relationship, being a nun, heresy, confessor, secrets, war, knighthood, running a business, independent woman

Year it was published: 2017

Summary:

1399. York is preparing for civil war, teeming with knights and their armed retainers summoned for the city’s defense. Henry of Lancaster is rumored to have landed on the northeast coast of England, not so far from York, intent on reclaiming his inheritance—an inheritance which his cousin, King Richard, has declared forfeit.


With the city unsettled and rife with rumors, Eleanor Clifford’s abrupt return to York upon the mysterious death of her husband in Strasbourg is met with suspicion in the city. Her daughter Kate is determined to keep her distance, but it will not be easy—Eleanor has settled next door with the intention of establishing a house of beguines, or poor sisters. When one of the beguines is set upon in the night by an intruder, Kate knows that for the sake of her own reputation and the safety of her young wards she must investigate.


From the first, Eleanor is clearly frightened yet maintains a stubborn silence. The brutal murder of one of Eleanor’s servants leads Kate to suspect that her mother’s troubles have followed her from Strasbourg. Is she secretly involved in the political upheaval? When one of her wards is frightened by a too-curious stranger, Kate is desperate to draw her mother out of her silence before tragedy strikes her own household.

Characters:

Main characters include Kate Clifford, a young widow who is raising three "bastard" children (two by her husband and one by her brother) as well as Kate Clifford's mother, Kate's uncle who played a big role in the first book, the knight and Kate's helpers. Kate is best described as resourceful, highly independent, loyal to her family and someone who is not a stereotype of a wilting flower. Kate's mother is a complex character although she seems to be dependent a lot on men and often the best of her attentions go awry. She becomes a bedouin and tries to start a house where Kate lives. Kate's helpers include a former assassin who is a talented chef and is loyal to Kate and the three children. He often helps Kate with mysteries and gives her details when it comes to either thievery or assassinations. Another of Kate's helpers is a young woman, a former thief who is good at gathering information and protecting Kate. The knight and Kate seem to share chemistry of sorts as well as respect but they are wary of one another as well. The knight often wants to handle things on his own without Kate and often ends up not telling Kate vital information.

Theme:

Don't trust appearances

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from Kate's point of view. I don't think I'd classify this as a cozy mystery, but it is a mystery anyways and focuses on a lot of threads from politics to being a woman in 1399 and to living an ordinary life. The characters are well rounded and memorable and the best thing about the story is the relationship between Kate and her mother because the reader is never quite sure of the mother's motives or reasons as to why she has made the decisions she did. I also enjoyed seeing the village life through Kate's eyes, from when she is walking her hounds to when she is with the girls and teaching them archery to when she has to care for and manage the estate. The story is detailed with historical detail, but its not over-bogged with it.

Opinion:

I really enjoyed reading this book a lot because its a straightforward mystery and the reader understands what's going on in the story. I do think it can be read as more of a stand-alone novel because although I read the first book, I didn't fully understand what was going on in the first book. This one is more compelling and also very detailed when it came to the year of 1399 and what was going on. I also enjoyed the relationship between Kate and her mother as well as Kate and her possible romantic interests. I do look forward to possible more books with Kate Clifford in them and hope I can get a chance to review them.
