The Family Gathering

If you read Burton Library book blogs on a regular basis you know I am a huge Robyn Carr fan. I think everything she writes is great, this book is no exception. The Family Gathering is a Sullivan’s Crossing Novel. Cal’s brother Dakota left the military and went to visit his brother in Colorado. This story is about his new beginning and the romance he finds. Carr’s books are always filled with romance with a twist of malicious conflict that has to be worked out. This is another good one, enjoy.

Year One

Yet another first in her trilogy-type books, this one seems to engage the reader with a more gripping subject.  The premise is the world has been infected by the Doom, a virus that spread rapidly over the planet, killing most of the human race. The story follows many groups of people who managed to live, and how they cope with a world that has regressed to no electricity, no internet, and no government in a matter of weeks.

Image result for gifted movieThis movie never was a huge hit the theaters but I think you might want to check it out. Frank Adler is raising his seven-year-old niece Mary who happens to be a math genius. He has enrolled her in first grade in attempts to give her a normal childhood, something her math genius mother never had thanks to her overzealous mother Evelyn. Because her math abilities are discovered by her first grade teacher soon after starting school (and probably because she was enrolled in school) her grandmother shows up wanting custody of Mary. Evelyn thinks that Mary would be better off back to Boston where she could have the best education possible. She wants to take Mary away from Frank and the only life she has ever known.
