A Good Book & What's For Tea?

I finished this book the other day. I really enjoyed it. I don't think there's one book of hers that I've read that I didn't like. She's an American author and writes books based in the south. From the descriptions I'd love to visit some of these places!

Here's a blurb I copied from Amazon

Eleanor Murray will always remember her childhood on Edisto Island, where her late father, a local shrimper, shared her passion for music. Now her memories of him are all that tempers the guilt she feels over the accident that put her sister in a wheelchair—and the feelings she harbors for her sister’s husband.

To help support her sister, Eleanor works at a Charleston investment firm during the day, but she escapes into her music, playing piano at a neighborhood bar. Until the night her enigmatic boss walks in and offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, back on Edisto. For Eleanor, it’s a chance to revisit the place where she was her happiest—and to share her love of music with grieving Helena, whose sister recently died under mysterious circumstances.

An island lush with sweetgrass and salt marshes, Edisto has been a peaceful refuge for Helena, who escaped with her sister from war-torn Hungary in 1944. The sisters were well-known on the island, where they volunteered in their church and community. But now Eleanor will finally learn the truth about their past: secrets that will help heal her relationship with her own sister—and set Eleanor free....

She writes what Mum would have called Family Stories although I think they are considered Womens' Fiction. Her books are ones that I read over and over again. I did have both physical and ebook copies of most of them, but I got rid of duplicates in my decluttering attempts. 

What was for tea tonight? Chicken Quesadillas. These are a family favourite. Basically, they are chicken cooked in seasoning, peppers, onions, cheese in tortilla shells (toasted in the oven) and served with sour cream and guacamole.

I took some photos with my phone and put them in a collage! Hope everyone had a good day!


  1. Your chicken quesadillas look good! Love the collage!

    1. They are really delicious, fresh and easy to make! Perfect for warmer days.

  2. I think I'd enjoy reading that.

    1. She writes really good books. They are ones I read over and over. Great descriptions of the places and interesting relationships between the characters.

  3. Mmmm - I love quesadillas - delicious! xx
