The Taste of Air: #bookreview

 

Can you imagine finding out that your mother has another life that you didn’t know anything about at all?

If you’re looking for a good book about secrets, dealing with life and family, a good ¬†choice would be “Taste of Air” by Gail Cleare.

So Nell travels to take care of her mother, who is in the hospital in a different state. Her mother isn’t supposed to be in a different state. She’s supposed to be living at an assisted living community.

It is the first of many secrets that Nell and her sister, Bridget, uncover.

I liked the main characters, Nell and Bridget. The neighbor guy seems a little weird. He has some secrets too.

This book made me think about the sacrifices that spouses make in order to make other people happy. Nell’s mother, Mary, made some huge sacrifices for her husband. Right or wrong, I don’t think I could make sacrifices like that for anybody. Especially not if Mary’s husband was my husband. He’s deceased but from the way people talk about him, he seems less than pleasant.

I enjoyed reading this book. It only took a day or two to read it because I wanted to know all of the secrets and to understand why Mary led two lives.

*I received a free ebook in exchange for doing a review.

Daughter of the Sun: #bookreview

daughterofthesun

 

I discovered this book, Daughter of the Sun: Cult of the Cat by Zoe Kalo on Goodreads. Someone posted a note in of the book groups asking if anyone would like to do a review.

Normally, I don’t read books on Kindle. It always seems like it would be convenient but I like real books. This is the first book that I’ve ever finished on the Kindle App so it must have been decent.

The main character, Trinity, is an orphan who discovers that she has a grandmother. She spends quite a bit of time learning about her family history, which has been kept a secret from her. It is like pulling teeth to get anyone to tell her anything about . . . well, anything.

She moves to an island filled with cats. It seems like a dream come true. However, Trinity has to do some major investigating to find answers. She also says, “I want answers,” on every other page. That’s an exaggeration but she does say it too much.

Overall, the book held my interest. Part of the story involves Egyptian myths about Bastet, who is generally referred to as a cat goddess. Her original title was “lioness warrior goddess of the sun.” If that phrase was on a shirt, I would totally buy it.

There is also a romantic love interest. I read another review that said the love story wasn’t necessary but I believe that it plays an important part of the story. I can’t tell you why because it would give away too much.

If you’re interested in Egyptian mythology, cats and mysteries then you will enjoy “Daughter of the Sun: Cult of the Cat.”
