“Silvie and her family spend two weeks living like their ancestors while participating in an Iron Age reenactment in the north of England. They come to find that their connections to the past run deeper than they’d imagined.” (Southern Living).

 

Bowlaway

From the day she is discovered unconscious in a New England cemetery at the turn of the twentieth century—nothing but a bowling ball, a candlepin, and fifteen pounds of gold on her person—Bertha Truitt is an enigma to everyone in Salford, Massachusetts. She has no past to speak of, or at least none she is willing to reveal, and her mysterious origin scandalizes and intrigues the townspeople, as does her choice to marry and start a family with Leviticus Sprague, the doctor who revived her. But Bertha is plucky, tenacious, and entrepreneurial, and the bowling alley she opens quickly becomes Salford’s most defining landmark—with Bertha its most notable resident.” (Amazon).

 

Island of Sea Women: A Novel

 

51kn-DDoHlL._SY346_

I pretty much hated her last novel (my review) since all it did was mention having sex constantly. (A complaint I was developing in an earlier book of hers as well).

Mi-ja and Young-sook, two girls living on the Korean island of Jeju, are best friends that come from very different backgrounds. When they are old enough, they begin working in the sea with their village’s all-female diving collective, led by Young-sook’s mother. As the girls take up their positions as baby divers, they know they are beginning a life of excitement and responsibility but also danger.” (Amazon).

 

Sorry, I don’t have the full ten this week!

  1. I really love Tennessee Williams’s work, but you don’t really hear about it much anymore (I find), which is a shame. It’s interesting that a writer has brought him to the forefront. If you do end up reading it, I’ll be very interested to hear how it is, but it’s not the kind of thing I’m likely to read myself, so I get why you are feeling on the fence about it.
