The Eclipsed Heart By Kimberly Thomas

Ok Ok here is a good book. Not just because she is my sister either.. Well my adopted sister since her dad adopted me when I was like 3 or so. I have lost track after all these years.. but its a good book..

Young girl is being stocked by a man and teenage boy is asked to protect her more than once but he tries with all his heart and falls in love with her..

Rachel is a young teenage student in the process of graduating and she is very poor. She works for a diner and pays the rent while her mother sits at home and thinks she is going to die sometime soon.. Well her mother has been doign this for a few years now. Rachel wears Goodwill clothing and kids pick on her.. I know the feeling..(I have been there and done that)..

I dont know how to explain this book very well. I am having a harder time doing a book review on this book for some reason. Maybe because its too close to home for me in my personnal life than not. I am not sure why.

Except i wasnt being followed to be hurt by a man and I didnt fall for prince charming trying to protect me either. I love Jeff but he wasnt trying to protect me like Tom was Rachel in the book..

This is Kim's first book and she has a sequel coming out sometime.. I cant wait to find out what happens to Rachel and Tom and the bad guy.. I suggest if I have captured your attention with the book please read it.. I havent had my copy signed yet but will sometime. I messaged her on FB this morning and told her I enjoyed the book. I know I didnt grow up with her but she is my sister and I want to support her anyway I can.

I guess she got lots of hits with this book. Amazon kept running out of the book. Not sure how well Barnes and Noble did really..

Now I am reading what SME suggested on FB a while back. I think its hard reading but I dont read all that much really so I am taking my time understanding it all. Its called Bloody Falls of the Coppermine by McKay Jenkins.

Something to do with the first Eskimo murders in 1913. I am in like chapter 3 and just taking my time with it.. Interesting book so far.. I only paid a 1.99 for it and 3.99 for shipping because the book wasnt here at our local Barnes and Noble.. but it was well worth the money I paid for it. I suppose I could have went to the Library also but with something like this I like having in my home.

Kora is reading Black Beauty and then off to read Mark Twains Huckle Berry Fin I believe its called. i dont have it right in front of me. I have her reading summerizing each chapter this year where I know she is reading the book.. Sometimes she start at the beginning and then reads the end and then goes back and reads the middle.. So I want to make sure she is reading the book from cover to cover..LOL..

I know I have been absent and I have gotten a little more help at home. Jeff has been helping me alot this last week but I still dont seem to have enough time in the day for everything and everyone I want to see.. I want to spend time on here and Etsy and do my crocheting and spend time with my family. Its really hard. I try to cram all this in on Weeekend and then I get cranky because nothing gets done. I dont see jeff but maybe 2 or 3 hours right now during the week. Weekend are a little easier but not much. I have so much to get caught up on, on weekends that I am always working.. so we have gotten where i do one load of laundry at night and he brings up the bin i fold and put that load away and the following night the same thing..

things will ease up after his hours go down a bit in January but right now its tough. Bri is reading welll herself.. She has found some Dick and Jane books she likes.. I bought them from Barnes and Noble and she has taken to them like ducks take to water.. lol. Wish I would have found them earlier though for Kora also. But you know you never think when you have your oldest sometimes.. Kora is reading for fun the old Ramona Quimby books. I loved those books as a child.. I loved to read and still do but I also love to crochet. I have so many interests lately its hard tok keep up with them all..

Anyway I need to go do some things like fold my laundry so I can go get Jeff here shortly. I will be around to make rounds tomorrow sometime. Sorry I have been absent and sorry for the rant on my book review..

When you figure out how to find more time in the day, let me know. I can never get to everything I want. I'll look up the book. Thanks for the recommendation.

It's always hard to stay on top of things. A routine makes it easier. I don't know how you keep up with the home schooling. I know it didn't work out for your girls, but I can't imagine not being able to send my kids off to school when they were little.
