Because of my strokes, I do not have the attention span for reading. I listen, now. I found a program that converts text into speech. And, I am currently listening to The Semi-Annual General Conference from my church.

I have gone to the library and listened to Stephen King, The Adventures of Tarzan, and Sherlock Holmes, among others. emoticon

The Headmistress of Rosemere by Sarah E. Ladd; historical fiction set in early 1800's England; the story reminds me of something the Bronte sisters would have written.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Once a year I reread "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" as told to Alex Haley~

"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

How Sweet the Sound by Amy K. Sorrells

It's set in 1979, about a Southern girl coming of age in a wealthy, but dysfunctional family.


KOFFEENUT; the movie version of Peyton Place is one of my favorite old movies.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Until the Robin Walks on Snow by Bernice L. Rocque; a story about an immigrant family and a devoted midwife struggling to save a tiny premature baby in Norwich, Connecticut, in 1922. Based on true events in the lives of the author's ancestors.

It's a short book, so I will probably finish it tonight.

Now I am reading The Measure of Katie Calloway by Serena Miller, historical fiction set in Michigan. After the Civil War, a young woman living among the ruins of a Georgia plantation and her little brother flee her abusive husband, and she seeks refuge in a logging camp, working there as a cook.

I have lived in Michigan my entire life, and it's been very interesting learning about the history of logging in my home state as I read this story.

I just started Blessings by Kim Vogel Sawyer, the last book of the Sommerfeld Trilogy.

This one is about a young woman who was raised an Old Order Mennonite; she has a gift for healing animals and dreams of becoming a vet, but it would be going against her family and her church to go on to college to do so.

Beginnings by Kim Vogel Sawyer.

This is the second book of the Sommerfeld Trilogy. In this one, Beth's mother Marie has returned to her Mennonite community that she had left some 20 years before. While Marie is happy with the return to old her life, Beth struggles to fit in with the conservative community, and trying to open her own stained glass art studio.

Bygones by Kim Vogel Sawyer, the first book of The Sommerfeld Trilogy.

This one is about a woman who left her conservative Mennonite community about 23 years ago, and she returns with her daughter in order for her her daughter to claim an inheritance left to her by her great aunt. In order to claim it, they must live there for 3 months; as she struggles to be accepted by her family, there is a series of thefts in the community, and her and her daughter become suspects, further complicating matters.

I really enjoy Kim Vogel Sawyer's historical fiction, but this is the first book of hers I have read that is set in the present day. I am about halfway through it, and I am really enjoying it.
