Cemetery Road – Book Review

Murder. Power. Corruption. Greed. Infidelity. But what I love is the way that the author is able to portray that nothing is ever black and white, or so easily right and wrong. The best we can do is to be the best we can be in a way that does the most good for the most people.

The Colorwork Playbook

Have you ever wanted to learn crochet colorwork, but don’t know where to begin? If you've hung out around here long enough, you'll know that I'm big on teaching and I LOVE a good cheat sheet. So when Claire of E'Claire Makery told me about her new colorwork resource, I knew I had to share!

Montauk State Park

Inside the park is the spring that combines with Pigeon Creek to form the headwaters of the Current River. It is this spring that gives the water its beautiful green/blue hue. The water is so clear, you can see clear to the bottom of it. If you're a fisherman, this gives you a perfect view of where the fish are.

The Last Time I Saw You – Book Review

This was my first book by the sister writing duo publishing under the pen name Liv Constantine. Their earlier book, The Last Mrs. Parrish, received rave reviews and that was enough for me that when my mom asked me if I wanted to borrow this one, I said absolutely! The book opens strongly, with a woman gasping for breath in an inferno, struggling to make it to safety. It pretty much goes downhill from there. Why? Well, several things actually.

A hardback copy of the book "The Four Winds" by Kristin Hannah sits on a wooden drafting board next to a white metal watering can, a green and white on terra cotta vase holding faux greenery, and a black mug of hot tea.

The Four Winds – Book Review

It's my belief that good books are diverting and can take you to a place outside of where you are in the real world, but great books are those that make you think, that challenge you to re-evaluate what you know, that change your viewpoint, that teach you something. Few authors are able to deliver on greatness time after time, but Kristin Hannah appears to be one of those authors.
