The Forgotten Room by Karen White, etc.

★★★★ 1/2
"My mother once told me that a lifetime of good enough was a fair price to pay for a single moment of pure happiness.  This is my moment.  Don' take that away from me."

A wonderfully written historical fiction novel telling the story of three generations of women filled with history, family, love, and suspense.  This was a very unique novel in that it was written by three different authors.  The stories flowed well together and kept my interest until the very last page!

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

★★★★ 1/2
"If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way."

Another page-turner from Jodi Picoult.  I really enjoyed the characterization and writing in this one.  No matter how many books of hers I read, the author still manages to surprise me!

The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro

★★★★ 1/2

I really enjoyed this book!  It had an interesting storyline and I was very intrigued by the artistic and historical details of the novel - especially those involving different techniques used in forging paintings.
