Latest book reviews by Ruth Curtiss

Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda – A marriage between two doctors, a man from India and a woman from the USA with an adopted daughter. Complications arise they don’t anticipate. Interesting and well written. Information about customs and culture in India.

The Postmistress by Sarah Blake – A WWII story from a different angle. A young recent bride is left in a small town in the States while her doctor/husband volunteers to go to London to help during the bombing. She writes a letter to him every day and he writes as he is able. The last letter has a much longer journey. It reminded me of the daily letters I wrote to my husband when he was overseas in the South Pacific for three years during the same war.

The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees – A fun book to read with the author telling the story of Louisa May Alcott’s life as she thinks it was in the mid 18th century, feeling the Jo of Alcott’s book,” Little Women” was really Alcott herself.

Ruth Curtiss is my mother and a lifelong avid reader.
