The Prodigal Son of Pendleton, Oregon

Pendleton, Oregon isn’t known for many things. In fact, unless you know where it is you probably would drive right past it without a second glance. Perhaps, on your trip across Oregon and into Idaho you’ve stopped to use the restroom at a roadside gas station or McDonalds. You’d have no reason to drive into […]

Review: Marred

Marred by Sue Coletta My rating: 5 of 5 stars   I don’t want to say this book is nightmare fuel, but this isn’t the kind of book you want to read before going to bed. Especially as a woman. Even more so as a single woman living alone in a dark apartment with no one […]

The Danger Mark

The Danger Mark by Robert W. Chambers My rating: 4 of 5 stars   Wealth, romance, adventure, and one woman’s struggle with addiction. This 1909 novel is right on par with Robert W.

Red-Headed Woman

Red-Headed Woman by Katharine Brush My rating: 3 of 5 stars   My apologies to any and all red headed women out there. This book does not paint you well at all. And in 1937, when the book was published, I’m sure plenty of auburn tresses were glared at while husbands’ arms were tightly gripped. […]
