My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Such a great book about a time gone by. Makes me nostalgic for my childhood in small town America and for the stories passed down from my grandmother.

Mrs Kennedy & Me - Chris Hill (book group)

Mrs. Kennedy and Me: An Intimate MemoirMrs. Kennedy and Me: An Intimate Memoir by Clint Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Clint Hill's memoir of the time he spent as Jackie Kennedy's secret service agent was so interesting.  He did not have a single harsh word to say about "Mrs. Kennedy" or the Kennedy clan.  Highly recommend.  Lots of insight into the lifestyle of the Kennedy's.

Blue Nights - Joan Didion (book group)

Blue NightsBlue Nights by Joan Didion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brilliant writer.  Sad memoir.  Joan Didion had a charmed life until she lost her husband and daughter within a very short time.  This is the story of the loss of her daughter, lots of interesting anecdotes.
