So last week when I asked if you prefer happy-ending books or “realistic” books, a few of you shared your favorite genres.  I recently signed up to participate in a June hop in which (gasp) the host requires the giveaway to be a book from a genre that I wouldn’t normally read!  Pretty sure that my comfort zone did a little shudder on that one.  This week I stayed nice and cozy with a couple of sweet romances that didn’t have any earth-shattering moments but did give me my book fix.

The first book I read was A Sky Without Stars.  This book’s central characters are from the Lakota tribe living in the southwest during the 1950’s.  Arizona residents weren’t particularly friendly to Native Americans in the book; the book tore at my heart.  Frankie, a single mom, struggles to raise her son while trying to better herself with a high school education.  I was rooting for her the whole time as she tried to make a satisfying meal from meager ingredients, or put her sewing skills to work in a new entrepreneurial way.  Her son Harold is turning out to be a thug and poor Frankie tries to lead him in the right direction even when she’s not sure of what she’s doing herself.  Harold isn’t guilty of all the accusations made toward him but he definitely has his issues.  The mysteries in the book weren’t too difficult to solve, the romance rather predictable, but the winning smile of this novel was the historical lesson.  I was so sad for the indigenous people who were forced from their ancestor’s land to make room for the new civilization.  Holding onto a family quilt was one way of keeping traditions alive.  The book is short enough to finish in a couple of hours, but the story will stay with me for long after.

    This is an interesting concept of having you try a new genre. I know it works sometimes trying new foods or clothing…even movies. This could be a great way to find some wonderful books.
