June's Genre of the Month Genre: Children/Picture book Illustrator: Tomasz Mikutel 5 Stars Brilliant and amazing read! What a brilliant story in Wind, Ocean, Grass by Karen A. Wyle. I am a fan of this author! Whatever this author writes, I read. The illustrations were magnificent, so kudos to the illustrator as well. This book would be perfect to read to a child or have the child read it back. It's not about people, it's not about animals or cute little creatures, but the bea
5 Stars Brilliant!!! What a magnificently magnetic story in Wander Home by Karen A. Wyle. Life isn't any easier in the afterlife. You still have to deal with the memories, both good and bad of when you were alive. That goes for Cassidy, whose mother left her when she was young, but then Cassidy died. I liked Wyle's perception of the afterlife. It's a remarkable story, and the characters were interesting, and not one dimensional. We never knows what happens after death, and th
Illustrated by Barbara Dessi 5 Stars Wonderfully whimsical story Wyle pens a grand children's story in When It's Winter. It was fun to read, and very enjoyable. The illustrations were as amazing as the story itself, and even if a child didn't know how to read yet, the illustrations tell the story. It would be a great story to read to your child, and even as an adult, to bring you back to the time of making snow angels in the snow or sliding on the ice. I loved the last part o
5 Stars Very informative Wyle pens a very informative book in Closest to the Fire: A Guide to American Law and Lawyers. I have read work from this author before, and I really enjoyed it. This book gives a lot of information about the law and legal system in America. It is written so it's not just a book written for lawyers, with a lot of jargon and phrases that only someone that works in the system can understand. It's a book written that even the layman, which is where I fal
5 Stars Wonderful story You Can't Kiss A Bubble is a wonderous simple story, but it has a lot of meaning behind the fascination of bubbles. They don't last forever, and they are very interesting for children of all ages (meaning adults as well) I have read work from this author before, and I really enjoyed it. This was a different story from what I've read from Wyle before, but it is obvious that this writer is very talented in many genres, and this one, though, simple, had t
5 Stars Wonderful Read Wyle pens a wonderful new story in What Shows the Heart, part of her Cowbird Creek series. This is book 3, and I have read the others that lead up to this. I like that it's not just a romance, but it has a great plot that breaks the heart of Jake and Mamie, but somehow, they are brought back together, but there is still the lingering past that haunts them. Magnificent read. This author has a great imagination and I'm glad it's being shared with stories.
5 Stars Magnificent story Wyle pens a remarkable historical romance story in What Frees the Heart. I've read the first book in this series, and liked it, but I think this one really caught my interest. Jenny was one tough lady, and not like what others expected her to be. They wanted her a bit more "lady like". This author brings the stories to life, and this was an interesting story. There is a great chemistry between the characters, especially Jenny and Tom, who saw someth
4 Stars A grand historical romance This is the first story I've read from Wyle, and I really enjoyed it. It wasn't just about two people who were fated to be together, there was another woman in the mix, and she was focused on having a husband, and she knew who she wanted. It was well written and the story flowed, well, not forced at all. Each character had their own unique traits, and fit within the story. I like that it also touched on Joshua's past in the war, (the Civil W
