I finally got home from the airport at 11:45 p.m. and put the finishing touches on my blog. When I woke up yesterday morning at 7:30, I turned on the radio and heard the announcer say it was 8:30. Yes, I have one of those "smart clock/radios that automatically reset for daylight savings time. It must not have gotten the government memo of the date change. So I was almost late for my WW meeting…and I hate being late.
Anyway, back to some sort of routine, here’s the WW reading report:
The Prodigal’s Return by Anna DeStefano
Reviewed by Loretta
The story begins with a Senior Prom night and two young people in love…and from that high falls to an unbelievable low. Returning to Rivermist eight years later, they encounter bitterness and anger. Resolving problems with love as the answer makes a beautiful story with a lesson we could all use.
To Rescue a Rogue by Jo Beverley
Reviewed by Loretta
Lady Mara – the 18 year old heroine is beautiful, compassionate and resourceful – way ahead of her time – you can’t help but admire her. In England in the 1830s, with all its levels of dukes, lords, commoners and difficult rules of conduct, she was known as "The Imp". The hero, Dare – and is he gorgeous! – is a perfect match for her, but he is using all his faculties to resolve a serious problem. They both work together against the "system" with the help of the group of "Rogues" to make up a charming, romantic novel, which is a pure pleasure to enjoy.
The Red Hat Club Rides Again by Haywood Smith

How many friendships truly stand the test of time?
Red Hat Club Rides Again, takes you into the lives and hearts of six women and their 30+ year friendship. Not all the years
are filled with warmth and joy, and yet they each find their way with their Southern background to SURVIVE and be HAPPY.
You’ll laugh, sigh and maybe even identify with one of these vivid characters.
The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards
Reviewed by Rita
A doctor, who is also the father delivers twins. The son is born healthy and the daughter with Down syndrome. The father sends the daughter with a nurse to an institution, but her nurse hates the place and raises the daughter as her own. This is a moving book that stays with you long after the last page. I highly recommend it.
Bottom Line: I think my clock/radio is smarter than our government.
