  • Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot
  • Author: Bruce Leininger
  • User Rating: 3
  • Review: TCL Call Number: 133.901 LEININGER B

    Stephanie C's rating: 3 stars
    This is a good story about a little boy who remembers a past life as a WWII pilot who was shot down at Iwo Jima. It makes you think when little kids say out-of-the-blue things that there might be something more to it. He has nightmares beginning at age two, crying out thing like "plane on fire, little man can't get out!" Then it progresses to super-detailed information about people he was with and a vast knowledge of various aircraft, and when his parents researched further they found out that he was telling them his previous life story. It kept my interest to learn more, but it wasn't a great work of literature.
    For people who like supernatural type mysteries.

    Review: Well, I couldn't put this book down so that's always a good sign. If you are interested in sustainable enterprise and Africa this is the book for you! I found it fascinating plus well-written and would highly recommend it to those who are interested in this subject.

  • Longbourn
  • Author: Jo Baker
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: TCL Call Number: F Longbourn J

    Diana's rating: 4 stars
    I intended to give this a skim for reader's advisory purposes, then was drawn in by sympathetic characters and an interesting twist on an old favorite. The house maid Sarah is the same age as Elizabeth Bennet, and like her, loves reading (though with her dawn to dark workload, it's a wonder she has the time) and longs for something more. She is torn between gratitude to Mrs. Hill for taking her in as an orphan, and fascination with what is beyond Longbourn...though her few travels away are disenchanting. Sarah's story, and the stories of the other servants, unfold along with the drama of Pride and Prejudice, so there's familiarity along with new insights and new romance.

  • The Enchanted
  • Author: Rene Denfeld
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: TCL call number: F Denfeld R

    Stephanie’s rating: 4 stars
    Rene Denfeld shined a light onto a dark void where most people have feared to look into. It's a place where men, who haven't lost their souls already, do within seconds of entering. It's also a place where men meet their death, whether it’s welcomed or not. In there, men don't have a choice. Death Row is an insidious hole where one woman, a priest, a warden, and unnamed inmate find harmony. Yes, there are gruesome acts and deplorable thoughts that the remnants of this prison
    live with, but within their walls, Denfeld was able to create an imaginary world full of magic that encompassed hope and more importantly love. She is a talented writer and "The Enchanted" is just
    the beginning. She will enrapture readers with her finesse and beautifully constructed words. How can such a dark place hold human spirits? Rene Denfeld found such a place and is inviting us to see it
    and read it, and feel it.
