I’ve been on a book reading roll recently. Here are the last three books I’ve read.
The Last Madam is the true story of a famous New Orleans madam Norma Wallace. She ran a legendary house of prostitution in the French Quarter for approximately forty years. I was interested in the story of this woman; however, the book details quite a bit of the politics in New Orleans. Because of that, I would only recommend this book to people who would enjoy reading about the city’s history as well.
Everything I Never Told You is about a Chinese/American family whose daughter goes missing and is found dead. The pain and confusion the family goes through is felt through each family member in a real and honest way. I highly recommend this book.
I think all books from those who were affected by World War II are worth the read.
