Biography Recommendations?

by adustyframe ~ August 17th, 2017

I try to read a good book or two to stretch my brain a few times a year.

I’m hoping to read Why Coolidge Matters soon….although I’ve not ordered it.

I have a portion of Code Talkers by Chester Nez to finish.

What have you read recently that I may enjoy?
I also always have my eyes open for something to James to read in school. He’s going to be in 11th grade this year…..how does that even happen?

3 Thoughts Shared to Biography Recommendations?

  1. Barbara H.

    If you’ve not read Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Butterfield, that’s an excellent biography. So is Growing Up Amish by Ira Wagler.

  2. Pam

    America’s First Daughter
    It’s about Thomas Jeffersons oldest daughter

    When Crickets Cry

    The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

    All for you
    I don’t have a clue for your son – sorry

    The best biography I’ve read recently is called Lion and it’s by Saroo Brierly. It’s about a boy from India who is separated from his family at age 5 and is adopted by a family in Australia. He later tries to find his birth family. There is also a movie about him which is on Netflix.

    Another good one is Hope Heals by Katherine and Jay Wolf. She had a massive stroke at age 26 shortly after the birth of her son. The book details how the Lord helped them through this and subsequent trials.

    I’ve also enjoyed several books by Carolyn Jourdan. Some are about her return to the mountains of Tennesse to help out her elderly father in his medical practice. She is a delightful writer. I found one of hers at the library on an audio book and several others on Kindle.

    Sorry to go on so, but I tend to enjoy non-fiction. 🙂
