Sophie & Cecilia by Katherine Ashenburg was a good one. It read fast and kept me interested the whole way through. It’s a story of two women, married to two famous men with a common theme throughout even as they each led very different lives. I enjoyed reading about how these women dealt with their troubles -even if I did not agree with them- and maintained their friendship as they moved through the ages. This book felt sincere.
The Bite of the Mango as told to Susan McClelland by Mariatu Karama was a difficult read. If you have experienced violence this book may trigger you. My heart was racing the whole way through but I could not put it down for this book was eye opening and heart breaking and inspiring. A must read, I think, for humans everywhere.
