Looking for some good book recommendations? Here's what I read in April:
The Newlyweds, Nell Freudenberger (3 1/2 stars). This is a beautifully written story about family and all its entanglements and how each generation tries to do better than their parents. Amina, a 24-year-old from Bangladesh moves to Rochester, NY to marry a man she meets online. Freudenberger does a great job giving insight into how foreigners look at our country. This book is about dealing with the fallout from one's personal choices.
Before I Go To Sleep, S.J. Watson (3 1/2 stars). Whoa! I didn't see that ending coming, but I have a feeling the John would have. A woman (who suffered a traumatic brain injury) wakes up each morning not remembering anything that happened to her since she was in her 20's. This book is definitely a page-turner.
