Literary Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 15:07:02 GMT

'At the heart of this vibrant saga is a vast ship, the Ibis. Her destiny is a tumultuous voyage across the Indian Ocean shortly before the outbreak of the Opium Wars in China. In a time of colonial upheaval, fate has thrown together a diverse cast of Indians and Westerners on board, from a bankrupt raja to a widowed tribeswoman, from a mulatto American freedman to a free-spirited French orphan. As their old family ties are washed away, they, like their historical counterparts, come to view themselves as jahaj-bhais, or ship-brothers. The vast sweep of this historical adventure spans the lush poppy fields of the Ganges, the rolling high seas, and the exotic backstreets of Canton.'

*Thread locked until start of discussion on May 15 2018.* *The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women* by Kate Moore is the May selection for the New Leaf Book Club. Image: ---Quote--- In a new book titled The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women, Kate Moore tells the story of how these dial painters took on the radium companies that made them sick—as they were dying of radium poisoning. Their lawsuits were key to reinforcing the U.S.’s nascent workplace safety standards. With their cautionary tales in mind, scientists on the Manhattan Project learned to protect themselves from radiation. ---End Quote--- Amazon US ( | Amazon UK ( | Amazon CA ( | Amazon AU ( | Kobo US ( | Kobo CA ( |Kobo UK ( | Kobo AU ( | OverDrive | Hoopla

Reading "The House on Foster Hill" by Jamie Jo Wright

Sun, 08 Apr 2018 17:09:09 GMT

and I can't put it down :) I love mysteries, and this is about the best "writer" I've found (Jaimie Jo Wright) in the Christian authored mystery/romance genre. Much more into the mystery than the romance if I can find them. Actually, I found Jaimie by searching "suspense/thrillers". I will write more after I've finished the book, but so far, like I said, it's hard to put down. So many of the books (although I've enjoyed them) got too repetitious so I'm finding this one truly refreshing so far. Love to hear from any, other readers that love this type of reading, Denise :thumbsup:

From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War. Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill. But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women's cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America's early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights that will echo for centuries to come. Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, The Radium Girls fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the "wonder" substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives... ---End Quote--- *Willoughbyland* by Matthew Parker Amazon UK £2.99 ( | Amazon US $13.99 ( | Amazon CA $14.99 ( | Amazon AU $14.99 ( | Kobo UK ( | Kobo US ( | Kobo CA ( | Overdrive ( Summary from Amazon: ---Quote--- At the beginning of the 1650s, England was in ruins – wrecked, impoverished, grief-stricken by plague and civil war.
