My Antonia

 by Willa Cather

Book Summary Note from Felina Silver Robinson: Author Willa Cather speaks as a 10-year-old boy that’s telling his story, when really that man is a woman who is both very strong and quite active. Think of what it must have felt like for her to dress as a man and hold back her true self. This is a truly heart wrenching story for the time period. I hope you will enjoy this great read!

Middlemarch  

by George Eliot (aka Marian Evans)

Book Summary Note from Felina Silver Robinson: Author George Eliot places many pages before you to get in touch with your feelings about love, hate, politics, winning losing, trying and failing and best of all being able to pick yourself up and start all over again. Life isn’t easy, it doesn’t lay itself out and spread it’s hands wide for you. You have to try and try again until you get it right, just like the timing of this book. It came just when it was needed, and now it’s time for you to sit back and enjoy “Middlemarch.”
