(1) Between Here And April by Deborah Copaken Kogan


Here we are! My first book of the New Year and I have decided to go with a new look. What do you think?

Between Here And April probably wasn't the BEST book for a newlywed to read on her honeymoon. I was expecting a little bit more of a mystery, instead I found a woman struggling with her role as wife and mother. In searching for the truth of what happened to her childhood friend, April, Elizabeth Burns comes face to face with the truths of her own life.

Her marriage is shaky at best, she feels unfulfilled by her career, and the memories of her friend April send her on the search for the truth. The truth about what happened to April, as well as the truth of her life today.

Between Here And April takes an insightful and honest look at married life. It isn't always good and it isn't always easy. Compromises are made on both sides of the bed. For better or worse. But, if two people are committed to their marriage it will work out, right? Can Elizabeth and her husband work through their problems with minimal damage? Will the truth about what happened to April change Elizabeth's perception about love and marriage?

Between Here & April is a good book. It challenges you to think outside of the "Happily Ever After" mentality. It takes a look at a couple who have been married for many years and what happens when life happens. There is a readers guide with engaging questions, making this book a great choice for Book Clubs.

Thank you! I wasn't sure if it would be hard to read with such light colors.

Hmmmm....not sure I love the new look! It's a bit busy for my tastes. I do like the layout though!

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
