May Flowers, May Book, New Grandchild!

Hello dear readers,

As most of you know we are expecting our second grandchild at the beginning of May and I am in Colorado as the Grammy for Alexander while his mom is in the hospital.

I have selected another older book for this month:
There Eyes Were Watching God by Zaora Neale Hurston
According to Amazon:  One of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.

This book was suggested by my sister-in-law so I am hoping she'll be re-reading along and give her comments.  

Enjoy dear readers,
Barbara
