I always love stories centred around old diaries and letters and this one really drew me into the family history. Being set in Queensland too it was interesting to read the description of certain locations and made me fall in love with the old homestead.

I started reading this book as a mere spectator and was taking in bits and pieces at the beginning of the story.

I kept wanting to savour this book as I had a few others on the go at the same time and was a bit distracted.
Along came a cold Saturday afternoon that I spent curled up on the couch in front of the fire with A Lifetime of Impossible Days.
If you open up your mind to the magic of the three Willa's I promise you will be taken on a special journey that will have your emotions in turmoil.
Swinging from crying at the injustice of Super Gumboots Willa's childhood to laughing at Silver Willa's funny nicknames for objects and believing in time travel to change the past before it's too late.
A Lifetime of Impossible Days will make you remember all the things that your childhood imagination brought to life such as the wonders of The Faraway Tree and believing that you could grow up and do whatever you wanted.
If you need a bit of this magic in your adult life then you will love this story.

BY Emily St. John Mandel

There are many books and stories about pandemics and epidemics and the fallout from these events.
What I love about Station Eleven is it tells the story of an Earth 20 years after the collapse of the world as we know it. The world is a simple place no technology no power and no communication.

Survival of each day is the goal of the characters along with art and entertainment for those who are members of the Travelling Symphony. This crew of misfits and eccentrics bring culture to an otherwise barren existence through plays and music.
The contrast of the grim setting against the almost whimsical nature of the performers and their lifestyle makes for an interesting journey.

I have read this book twice now and have to say I enjoyed it even more second time around. It is hard to pinpoint why it is so appealing but the story will stay with you long after you turn the last page.

5 out of 5 stars!

This book was in my opinion, an excellent story using a subject of great interest yet describing it well. Loved the whole storyline and enjoyed it thoroughly. Did not want to finish the book. Thankyou Rachael Johns.

The color of water : a black man's tribute to his white mother / James McBride
Author: McBride, James, 1957-
Publisher: New York : Riverhead Books, 1996

I really enjoyed this book. It is very well written, telling two stories of Ruth McBride Jordan and James McBride. These stories are told with a balance of humour, sadness and family pride. Ruth was an amazing woman, she overcame many obstacles in her life to raise 12 children, each one has been very successful in their professional lives. I loved Ruth's words of wisdom and highly recommend this book.
