The History of Cape Elizabeth and Portland Head Light
Mr. Williams’s Third Grade class 1992-93
educational and a fun read from our Maine room! Illustrations were done by the children (now adults) in Mr. William’s third grade class of 1992-93. Love the historical account!
As unrelentingly downbeat as the rest of French’s novels, yet so well-written that it demands to be read.
Last Orders at Harrods
Offers an alternate view of the symbiotic relationship between NGOs and repressive regimes.
An all-too-familiar story told in a unique way that makes it magical.
The Storied Life of AJ Fikry
The Shell Collector
Beautiful book, beautifully written. Each story is different from the first, but equally as enchanting. Would read again and again.
If you’re looking for a page-turning beach read, this is not the book for you. If you are ready to tackle a lyrical meditation on time, space, nature, humanity, technology, religion and history, give this a try.
I would recommend it because I love the Flavia de Luce series, but this one takes a strange turn, which makes me wonder if I will want to keep reading them. I’m wondering what other fans of the series think of it.
Funny, sad, and elegantly written–this book explores some neat (and relevant!) ideas about waste and desire in in the lives of its contemporary, American characters.
