Two books by Susan Meissner have been terrific recuperation reads, A Fall of Marigolds, see review link here- http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-fall-of-marigolds-susan-meissner/1115811889?ean=9781101625545
and then, Secrets of a Charmed Life, reviewed here- http://katemotaung.com/2015/01/19/secrets-of-a-charmed-life-a-review/ Both books are in paperback and explore historical events, Ellis Island, 9/11 and the London Blitz, while intertwining a believable, well-written storyline in roughly 370 pages.
Weather has been a bit hot and steamy, but there have been frequent thunderstorms to keep the gardens growing. I am a bit antsy not being able to putter in the garden, but from my viewpoint the plants are doing well on their own.
