National Today is a website that shows all the national days of observance and holidays. If you ever wonder what today is and the significance of what we are observing, there’s a link above to find it. There’s a list by month, year or day. It’s interesting to see where some of these days come from. Take a peek when you get a chance.
I was curious about Mrs. Winchester, since I had visited the house in San Jose on a couple of occasions. The stories seemed far-fetched, and after reading this, I understand why.
I didn’t get into this book until after the first third of it. The family tree was dull, and it took hours and many pages to get through. Once we got into the story of Mrs. Winchester herself, and the history of San Jose and Santa Clara, it got interesting.
I loved it! I had this book sitting on my TBR list for ages and finally picked it up because a bookclub was about to read it. I didn’t make the deadline or the bookclub meeting, but I still felt it was worth reading.
There were so many funny lines in it. I found myself laughing out loud so many times. I don’t mean to say that it was a fluffy comedic book, because it did have a lot of touching moments in it.
Wow! What a ride! This kept me guessing the whole time. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, I was proven wrong.
The author did a wonderful in her research and the emotions ran high throughout this book. Up until the end, I was guessing the ending. I hope to read more of her books and I hope they are just as amazing!
