My real life and blogging friend Barb of Book Club Mom recently asked me to do a guest post book review, and I was honored to do so. I know Barb from years ago as a lacrosse mom, but despite logging in many games together, I never knew she was such an avid reader. If you like to read or are a fellow “book club mom,” you must check out Barb’s blog. She has some great suggestions, current and classic, as well as some wonderful creative writing and essays.
As luck/fate would have it, there is a rather eccentric customer who occasionally comes into the store and likes to offer me book suggestions. I wasn’t working on the day she last came in, but she insisted on writing down this title and passing it on to our security guard to give to me. I always feel compelled to at least read a sample of a book anyone thinks to suggest to me; it just seems like good manners. Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt is one of the best books I’ve read recently. To be honest, I didn’t have especially high hopes, but I’ve learned that sometimes great suggestions can come from unlikely sources.
You can find my review of Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt right here at Book Club Mom. And if you ever have any good book suggestions for me, I’m all ears.

Dawn, thanks for the recommendation. Since we’ve arrived in AZ I have been reading so much. Just finishing “One True Thing”. Anna Quindlan is just so human! Will read her new book a little later. Also finished Molokai (a fictional story of a young leper girl). Learned a lot about that leper colony. Don’t you feel sorry for people who don’t like to read because they never get transported and escape to other worlds.
Ginny, I can’t imagine life without reading! One True Thing is one of my all-time favorites. Love, love, love Anna Q. Hope you and Bob are enjoying the sunshine. 5 – 9 inches expected here tomorrow.
Dawn, Thanks for this post!!! I am always looking for interesting books. Nicole
