#MMBBR #Review #DiggingIt by @LorettaNyhan @AUAuthors #LakeUnionPublishing @LUAuthors




My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is an emotional read. I found it to be so authentic and brilliant. There is truth and heart in this book. You can tell Nyhan has lived this story, she poured herself into it. She allows the reader to go on the journey with her, even though it was not always pretty. She wrote so authentically that you cannot help but feel emotionally connected to the characters, the story, the realness of all of it all brought together within the pages. Such a great book that left me with all the feels.

Winter Sisters by Robin Oliveira
New York, 1879: After an epic snow storm ravages the city of Albany, Dr. Mary Sutter, a former Civil War surgeon, begins a search for two little girls, the daughters of close friends killed by the storm who have vanished without a trace. Mary’s mother and niece Elizabeth, who has been studying violin in Paris, return to Albany upon learning of the girls’ disappearance—but Elizabeth has another reason for wanting to come home, one she is not willing to reveal. Despite resistance from the community, who believe the girls to be dead, the family persists in their efforts to find the two sisters. When what happened to them is revealed, the uproar that ensues tears apart families, reputations, and even the social fabric of the city, exposing dark secrets about some of the most powerful of its citizens, and putting fragile loves and lives at great risk.

I cannot say much about this because it is emotional. It is important, hard to read, heroic, heartbreaking and a must read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So happy to report that Schorr has done it again! She has written a book that both acts as a great way for returning readers to revisit old friends but also writes it in a way that a new reader can pick it up and enjoy her brilliant story without missing a beat. I love that there are aspects of the book I can find comfort in figuring out while still being very surprised and delighted throughout. It is this perfect balance that makes reading Schorr one of my favorite authors. I think she understands her readers on a deeper level. She gives the readers stories that feed their hearts. She knows how to engage the reader and continues to deliver in each and every book! This is a must read!

I love these journals. I have been using them for a month now and I find that I have been more relaxed and centered. I feel like this is because I have writing everyday. This is something that I used to do and for some reason got away from. I am glad I am back to journaling. These journal contain the same writing prompts, but the covers and inside images are unique to each journal. Some of the prompt questions are: What have you worked the hardest for? Love or Money? What is a class you would like to take? I love all the blank sheets too, so I can write about whatever I feel like. I just love these journals and plan to buy them as gifts for friends.
