The Dressmaker of Khair Khana
The Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon (History/Biography)
This is a true story of how some entrepreneurial, innovative women survived during the brutal Taliban rule in Afghanistan. Although the subject matter is important, the book is not well-written and is short on characterization and other cultural details. -- Added by Jhusain on 02/11/2016

The Lake House
The Lake House by Kate Morton (Mystery/Suspense)
It was ok, if you like reading books that jump from past-now and back again. However, interesting read-missing child, abandoned house, unsolved mystery. -- Added by Bernadette on 02/11/2016
