Book Review: They Danced On (The Darlings #3)

They Danced on (The Darlings #3)They Danced On by Carre Armstrong Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Judging by the epilogue, I think this may, sadly, be the final book in The Darlings Series. But what a lovely book it was, and I was happy to spend time in the company of the Darling family. The main focus in this one was the Darling matriarch, Jane, as she faces the inevitable loss of her husband, who has ALS. Some time was also devoted to Laura and her alcoholism, and to the other members of the family as well, but I still want more.

*Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for providing an e-galley for review.

Book Review: You Choose

This one has become a favorite since it arrived a few weeks ago -- for both my boys, ages 5 1/2 and almost 4.  Each two-page spread asks a question like "Where would you want to live?" or "How would you want to travel?" and my boys LOVE to pore over the pictures and choose.  It's a great book for encouraging both speech development and vocabulary, and as an oversize hardcover it's a bargain for only $12.99.  Click here to read more about it or to order.
