We bought The Price of Valor yesterday after watching a movie about the life of Audie Murphy, one of America’s most decorated hero of WW II.

I'm reading " Give a Girl a Knife " by Amy Thielen.  It's the true story of a woman's journey from the Midwest to Culinary school and the kitchens of NYC. and back again.  You might remember Amy had a show briefly on Food Net, and unfortunately it didn't last.

Starting July off with John Steinbeck: Tortilla Flat. It's the first book he wrote. The title refers to a district in Monterey, CA, and takes place right after WW1. The main character is named Danny, and the story tells about his friendships with a group of people; how they always look out for one another, while taking advantage of everything life hands them. Another good read. So far I haven't found a bad book by Steinbeck. 

One of his books The Winter of Our  Discontent was well written, but I couldn't connect with the character in that one like in the others I've read.

I'm just starting Leaving Cold Sassy by Olive Ann Burns. It's the sequel to Cold Sassy Tree,which I read last year. Great book...funny sad,I didnt want it to end.I hope the sequel is as good. Sad that the author died before she could finish this sequel.  She was a great writer who started writing very late in life.
