@doglvr  This thread has been neglected of late and does not pop up continually as it used to when there were many posters.  Old threads get buried.  I am happy to keep it going though and would like to read Mrs Astor Regrets.    The more we post the more the thread is seen by new people to the site.

I can't believe it took me so long to find this forum.  Follett's World Without End and just started Mrs. Astor Regrets by Meryl Gordon.  It's about Brooke Astor & how she ends up at 104 with her son swindling her money. 

 

I needed this book after reading 1000+ pages of Follett.

@doglvr  I am so glad this thread has come back to life!  It is very old and there are lots of good books mentioned here over the years.

I have to get The Violinist of Venice.  Love Vivaldi but know nothing about him, e.g. he was a priest.

 

So, another one to add to my list of Must Reads.  Thanks

I am almost finished reading The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence by Alyssa Palombo, historical novel about the woman who posed for Botticelli's Venus.   Moves quite slowly and is not as well written as her other book, the Violinist of Venice.  But interesting still.

I enjoyed it. If you have Amazon Prime, you can read it for free with the Kindle app.

@m901083d  Welcome here.  Read Snow Flower and the Secret Fan a few years ago, really enjoyed it.

I loved this book too.  Have you read her book Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane?  That book taught me so much about tea that I now buy all different kinds of tea online.
