Book Club Thursday: Clearing Off the Shelves
Welcome Back to Book Club Thursday!
Today is our last Clearing Off the Shelves for this year. Not to worry, it will be back next year! We all have way to many books not to be clearing some off our shelves. As always we hope you'll join us when we do these post feel free to talk about a book you cleared off your shelves at home.
(Books must have been on your shelf longer then six months
and can be read in the order of our choosing)
This month I'm doing:
Sunday Kind of Love
Grand Central Publishing
Gwendolyn Foster's life seems like a dream come true. A bright future in front of her, the successful, traditional man her parents wanted at her side. What more could a girl ask for? But Gwen has a different dream altogether-to be a writer-and she won't rest until it comes true. Strong arms to support her, not own her . . . that's what she needs. And she finds them in the most unexpected of places.
Hank Ellis has long been haunted by his little brother's death. He knows the entire town blames him for the accident, but it's only fitting. He blames himself too. So he's shocked when Gwen ignores the vicious gossip and befriends him. And before long, everything changes for them. Folks warn Gwen about Hank, but she knows in her heart that they're wrong. Drawn to this man of bravery and kindness who encourages her to pursue her passions, Gwen can finally envision the life she's always wanted. And with Gwen, Hank finds the strength to let go of his guilt, as he dares to hope for a future with her.
But braving the town that turns against them isn't the only challenge they face. For Hank still harbors a dark secret, a shocking truth that may force him to lose Gwen forever . . .
I really couldn't find anything for her other then from her publisher. I know at one time she had her own website but it much now be gone.
For a very long time now I've been reading and enjoying Dorothy Garlock's books. She has a way of writing gritty, tough hard working characters that you want to know more about.
I will admit that I'd rather read her books that our in or around 1800's. I'm not a huge fan of her ones done in the middle 1900's. Sunday Kind of Love happens in 1956 so I already knew that I was going into with it being written in a era that I wasn't that happy about. But since it's Garlock I tried it anyway.
I'm glad I did. Yes, it wasn't my favorite but I did enjoy it. The story worked well for the 50's and moved nicely. If you're a fan of this time period I really think you'll enjoy it.
What I did love is the cover. It really draws you to the book. I love great covers on the books I read!
If you've read Sunday Kind of Day or any other book by Dorothy Garlock I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting with me and happy reading!
