Three novels from the used book store

Big Stone Gap ~ by Adriana Trigiani, 2000
I've been meaning to read this one for over a decade.  Big Stone Gap, where the author was born, is a real place.  Since I've been in that area of southwest Virginia, I'm ready to "travel" there in fiction.
The Lady and the Unicorn ~ by Tracy Chevalier, 2004
Another book I intended to read long ago, since I've read and enjoyed some of her other books:  Girl with a Pearl Earring (1999), Falling Angels (2001), and Remarkable Creatures (2009).
My Name Is Memory ~ by Ann Brashares, 2010
I don't think I've read any of her books, though I've picked them up occasionally.  This one intrigues me; it's about Daniel and Sophia, who have spent centuries falling in love in life after life.

I'm thinking of reading Girl with a Pearl Earring so I am off to check out your review. These three look like interesting ones as well. Enjoy

Sorry, Helen. I read Girl with a Pearl Earring long before I was a blogger, so that's just a mention. But it's an excellent book, and I am sure you'll like it.

My Name is Memory wasn't amazing, but I did like it. I hope you enjoy! The other two are on my TBR pile...
