Love has no boundaries

This isn't on my TBR list. But since I joined my condo's book club last month, this was the first pick: Oh my Stars by Lorna Landvik. I had to admit, I liked it. It's a must read for all book clubs to discuss. This deals with a cross-country trip, racism and segregation, love, life, music, the Depression and World War II and fast forward more in time to Violet, who narrates each chapter, to the final chapter of the book. It's bittersweet and requires all readers to carry a hanky for this journey of life, love, music and death.


  1. This does sound like it would make a great book club pick. Thanks for the head's up!

  2. Sounds like theree is a lot going on in this one. I'll look for it at the library.

  3. Adding OH MY STARS to my wish list - thanks for the hanky warning! :)

    I hope your condo book group works out well. We have a neighborhood book group, and it's a good time to check in with everyone (aside from discussing the book and eating good food!)
