David McCullough is just a great writer. He can turn any mundane topic into something fascinating. And he did it again with "The Wright Brothers. I don't really have an interest in aviation and I'm not sure why I even picked up the book, except that I figured if McCullough wrote it, it must be good.

He is there to witness the Wright brothers make history by becoming the first people to fly. But Johnny's life changes years before the dramatic first flight, when his mama gives him a blank book and tells him to write in it.

The Doc Ford series is always entertaining and a comfortable read but in Dark Light I felt the author introduced a few new twists to his story. I was guessing and assuming what the outcome would be as I turned each page only to find out that White continues to be elusive and doesn't let the predictable play out. Another satisfying read. I'm ready for the next Doc Ford book! 続きを読む.
Bestseller Rivers (Redeeming Love) brings unexpected faith to a fictionalized Banksy character in this ambitious novel. Roman Velasco is an artist who has his own studio, rising prestige, and large commissions―yet he keeps secret his life as the Bird, a renowned and elusive graffiti artist. Enter Grace Moore, an emotionally wounded single mother who finds her meaning in God. She signs on as Roman’s personal assistant, eager for the job but not so sure about the temperamental artist.
It’s been nearly half a century since David McCullough published The Johnstown Flood, which initiated his career as our matchless master of popular history. His 10th book, The Wright Brothers, has neither the heft of his earlier volumes nor, in its intense focus on a short period in its subjects’ lives, the grandness of vision that made those works as ambitious as they were compelling. Yet this is nonetheless unmistakably McCullough: a story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency. It does not begin promisingly.
