Angela's Pick - September

For September, we read "The Heretic's Daughter" by Kathleen Kent. What a great read! We were all excited to read a story set during the Salem Witch Trials and had a great discussion. Most every body loved the writing style by Kathleen Kent and the narration given by the daughter of an accused witch. There were mixed reviews about some of the content but we all enjoyed reading about such an interesting time in American history.

Julie thought the writing style was like "The Book Thief" and we discussed the descriptive comparisons the author used.
Cora made an interesting point about the scary things people do out of fear and all the crazy things that have happened throughout history. Very good observation and very true.

We enjoyed yummy pie and talked late into the night at Angela's. We had a good time and missed all that couldn't attend. Thanks Ang!!!

Next Month: Liz picked "Never Let Me Go"
by Kazuo Ishiguro
