Between the Covers: More Reviews from the Reisterstown Road Branch

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
This book is a fun read about finding love the second time around, civility, and evolving in our thinking and actions.  What makes it even more fun is its constant humor.
-- Bernice

The Available Wife by Carla Pennington
I loved this book.  It was so good I couldn't put it down.  I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen between the characters.  I can't wait until part two comes out.
-- Danita

The Jew in the Lotus: a Poet's Rediscovery of Jewish Identity in Buddhist India by Rodger Kamenetz
At a meeting of the Dalai Lama and a delegation of Jews, the Dalai Lama told the Jews to cherish the sweetness, joyousness, and deep wisdom of their religion.  The Jews advised the Dalai Lama that in order to survive his holocaust, traditions and family were important.  The many similarities and parallels between these two faiths were astounding!

River of Doubt by Candice Millard
Teddy Roosevelt never ceases to amaze.  A man's man who truly believed only the tough deserved respect, gave a speech after being shot in the chest, lost his second run at the White House, and decided to explore an uncharted tributary of the Amazon where he and his party nearly perished.  This is the story.  I couldn't put it down.
-- Brian
