The Judgment is the second in the Rose Trilogy series by Beverly Lewis. The book is still following sisters Rose Ann and Hen and their families.
As I shared last week, I thought this was a good series and I was happy to find it after reading so many Amish books that were a little too whiny for my liking. But I feel like I am done with this genre.
A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy was published posthumously and was another find from the library's website. This is the first book by the author that I have read, but I have seen the movie "Circle of Friends" that was based on her book so I was happy to give it a read.
Chicky ran away from Stoneybridge, Ireland to America with a boy when she was a teenager and when he left her a few months later, she was too ashamed to return home. She made up a life for herself in letters she sent home. Eventually, she decides to have her fake husband die in a car crash and she buys a large house in Stoneybridge and renovates it to be bed and breakfast of sorts. Her opening week is advertised as a Week in Winter.
I really enjoyed this book! After the initial story is laid out, the book follows other people who end up being guests or are instrumental in others attending the Week in Winter. The characters are all unique and interesting and the way that the week plays out is quite charming. My only complaint is that there were story lines started during the week, but the book ends almost abruptly at the end of the week. I would have liked another chapter to wrap everything up.
