This is one of my favorites of Jon's books - do animals have souls; do dogs-pets read us and reflect back what we want to see; what is the difference between soul and spirit - is there a difference? ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

This is one of my favorite biographies. There is so much myth and folklore. Cleopatra stood at the crossroads of history and myth itself. This book weaves fact and lore, clearly looking at the woman caught up in the glory of her own story and time, a true politician and patrician. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

This is a “true life puzzle” that reads like a “whodunit”. The plot: an archaeologist in love with a myth, a spinster (who dies too young) in love with language and cipher. Then there is the handsome young architect, who solves the mystery and then dies...mysteriously. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
