Lose Yourself in a Good Book
by Beth Goehring
Step away from the TV. Turn off your laptop. Leave Facebook and Instagram to somebody else. Lose yourself for a couple of hours in a different time and place, with intriguing people who have challenges that have nothing to do with social distancing. You’ll be so glad you did.
America’s First Son is whip-smart and busy pursuing his higher education. He doesn’t have time to do the socializing required of the First Family… and yet, he’d do anything for Madame President, so he agrees to spend some time in Britain, making nice with the blue bloods. A spectacular disaster involving him and the Prince of Wales and captured by the tabloids is just the beginning of what will become a dangerous transatlantic alliance. Get the book.
People don’t change that much from generation to generation, as a modern young wife discovers when she unearths a dog-eared, handwritten recipe notebook in her new suburban home. The 1950s owner of her house had many of the same frustrations as she does…and a very crafty solution to the problem. Get the book.
This tale of determination is told in the most delightful and original voice I’ve read in years. Adunni, a Nigerian teenager, has lost her protector, her mother who wanted her so much to get an education. That’s not in her father’s plan and Adunni is sold to a man who has two wives and no sons. Adunni will make her mother proud after she learns some hard lessons that have nothing to do with reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic. Get the book.
Beth Goehring believes, with apologies to Lorelei Lee, that rather than diamonds books are a girl’s best friend…and a boy’s, a man’s and a woman’s. For more than twenty-five years, through Book-of-the-Month Club and its related clubs, she’s sold popular fiction, mysteries, romances, cookbooks, children’s books, play scripts, behind-the-scenes tales of the movies and theatre, and lifestyle books. She lives with her husband in Manhattan
