A young couple become light house keepers......three unsuccessful births......lead to despertion and when  a baby and dead father's boat driffs ashore they keep the baby and raise her for years......even after they learn the birth mother is alive and desperate to find the baby.....interesting study in human nature ....... we can all "talk" ourselves into believing what we are doing if okay, because it works for us........the book makes you wonder just how you would handle it all.......you like to think you would do the right thing..........and yet.......

It's the story of three sisters in Chicago during WWll.  One sister trys to care for the other two, even giving up two boyfriends so her sisters could marry them and be happy......parts of the story moved a bit too slow and there where much repeating of "letters from the front".  However, I would still call it a very sweet/pollyanna book.

The story of Anne Morrow and Charles Lindbergh.....based on he journals.  Always interesting to learn about "real" people.  Lindbergh was not a very nice guy.....he kept a second family on the side while living the life of a hero to many Americans........surely not my hero! 

Having said that......I recommend reading it.

Alzheimer takes over the mind of a Harvard prof. The book is the story of how the people around her react and how her life is changed.  Very interesting read.......makes you wonder everytime you forget something.

And how would you and your loved ones handle it.
