This is a history of the conquest of England by the Normans. It is a well documented time period, but Weir once again searches out the story from the women's points of view, sifting through the myths and legends and making the characters real and believable. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
This is a wonderful collection of prose narratives. Extending over a period of time, the reflections of Kent's personal experiences, both real and metaphorical; is an expression of the love of the land and it's history. Dramatic and often heart-stopping. I use this collection as meditations. A new favorite. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
This is a grand novel in the tradition of the People of the Book. A mystery within a mystery and from the point of 2 women; both scholars. One, in the 17th century & one in the 20th. Each era & each woman is a mirror & foil for the other. Both are entwined in the lives of the 1st legal Jewish community in London in 1660, a dangerous time politically & religiously. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
This marvelous book is a comprehensive account of man's search for God beyond faith, from the Neanderthal period through the Neolithic to contemporary man. An amazing, enthralling, and insightful account, beautifully rendered in less than 300 pages! ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
When you think of Leonardo, think of his drawing of the Vitruvian Man; the perfectly proportioned of a figure in a circle, within a square. This is Leonardo. As Isaacson so eloquently writes, the perfection of artistic endeavor through science was the artist’s true genius. Isaacson's biography is pitch perfect. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
