A Place Called Freedom

by Ken Follett

 

Ken Follett is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. This is the second Follett novel that I have read. The first was Pillars of the Earth. Mr. Follett is an awesome storyteller, developing three dimensional, memorable characters that are relatable. I could not put this book down. He writes in a style that keeps you turning pages with anticipation. Thoroughly enjoyable read.

The Exiles

by Christina Baker Kline

 

This is a very engaging novel, though very sad and emotional. As I read, my emotions ran from downright anger to sobbing and back again. It is a stark portrayal of the degradation and abuse women were forced to endure during that time in history. It also displays the arrogance of Europeans when they encountered people of other ethnicities, failing to even view them as people. I really couldn’t put it down. All in all, a good read.
