    The Days When Birds Come Back
    The characters didn't interest me as much as the descriptions of the Pacific Northwest and the home renovations. Wouldn't it be lovely to find someone like Jameson who took such pride in his work, and fulfilled his obligations with the care of a true craftsman. I found June to be rather annoying in spite of feeling sympathy for the circumstances of her early life. It was an okay read, but
    couldn't get truly invested in the story or the characters.

    Exercise in tragedies
    June and Jameson needed to find each other in order for readers to experience with them the sad and wide range of bad happenings they sort of survive: death of parents and children, physical injuries, loss of love, alcoholism, misunderstandings, and more. To me it portrays overwrought lives which most of us wouldn't get through. Also had a series of coincidences that I found ludicrous. I gave it a 3 because of the interesting home renovation. I guess I don't see the book as plausible. Especially the ending. Sorry, Deborah.

    The days when birds come back
    This was not one of my favorite books - I found it hard to "get into". June was a difficult character to relate to - her story unfolds slowly throughout the book. While feeling some pity for - I also found her annoying. It might be a good read for Book Clubs because I think it would elicit a vigorous discussion.

Book Jacket
The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers

At once a love story, a history lesson and a beautifully written tale of forgiveness.
