Great! You'll enjoy both, even if you're just casually interested in history. I particularly enjoyed the book about John Adams because his life is examined from a pro-liberty point of view. I bought the 1812 book mainly because I'm from Ohio where everything, including the county I grew up in, is named for Commodore Perry, plus I now live near Baltimore, where Ft. McHenry is. The book turned out to be better than I expected.
Thanks for joining Mystery & Suspense! Tell us something about you in the Introduce yourself topic, including some of your favorite authors in this genre.
Our book for group discussion later this month is Stealing Shadows by Kay Hooper. We hope you'll be able to participate.
Persausion is one I have been wanting to read! I haven't read Captains Courageous either. I am open to anything on the website too. I chose last time-you can choose. :) Since you're reading American Lion, that'll give me time to locate a copy of whatever you choose. (I live in the country with limited library.) :)
I'm an attorney and author with two kids and a 33 year old marriage. (Don't me ask me how that last statistic happened. My husband and I are both trying to figure it out.)
I would definitely characterize my reading choices as eclectic, but with emphasis on mysteries. Lately I've been reading Deborah Crombie, probably because her mysteries occur in England, and, since I live in Phoenix, Arizona, reading about cold places is a major form of escapism.
The author is Randall Garrett and the series is the Gandalara cycle.
ThankS A LOT.... It is THe BOOK. I was frustrated tryin to remember the name of the author and book. I had purchased it in Mumbai (INDIA) on footpath. We have a arrangment with the booksellers by which we take one book, read it and return it to the seller. Either we take another book or he returns some amount frm the original price. Sadly the street book bazar at Churchgate area is no more. Nowadays we can see booksellers only on sundays... But now I am going to find the series and read it. Thanks again...
