Title
The Velvet Hours
Author
Alyson Richman
Review
A wonderful historical fiction about a woman from the late 1890's and her granddaughter from the late 1930's in France. The idea came to Alyson Richman because a beautiful apartment in Paris was found untouched after 50 years.

News of the World
Author
Paulette Jiles
Review
This slim work of fiction tells the story of a 10 year old girl, kidnapped by Indians, and the gentle old man who comes to her aid. Set in Texas in the 1870's, it is a sweet "old fashioned"
novel with characters to care about.
