Sample Saturday – a cabin, single mothers and war


Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.

Shelter by Sarah Stonich

Why I have it: Because I loved Vactionland.

Summary: Woman builds a cabin in the Minnesota wilderness – homage to her father and his ancestors.

I’m thinking: Probably not – will stick with her fiction, though.

The Mothers by Rod Jones

Why I have it: It’s a relatively new release so suspect I read a review.

Summary: It’s 1917, 1952 and 1975 – the story of three women, all left to mother on their own.

I’m thinking: Yes. I like a book set in Melbourne and am interested to see how Jones goes about writing from the perspective of three women.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Why I have it: Because someone said that if I liked All the Light We Cannot See then I’d like this (but just quietly, big shoes to fill).

Summary: WWII, two sisters, French Resistance.

I’m thinking: Not sure I love it enough to slog through 450 pages, so no.
