What Alice Knew, by Paula Marantz Cohen

This is one of our Historical Fiction Online Book Club selections, so if you have read it, you get 20 "Bake Sale Bucks"! The Online Book Club Bake Sale will be December 11 and Online Book Club points the only method of payment for all of those delicious home-baked treats!!!

Do ya'll remember when Patricia Cornwell wrote Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper - Case Closed? I remembered her writing it and reading enough of it to find out who she'd fingered, but all I could remember was that he'd been a painter. Apparently Ms. Cohen does not agree with Patricia Cornwell's conclusion!

I loved how she portayed the James siblings! But it didn't make Turn of the Screw (A Classics Online Book Club selection) any more interesting...

What did everybody else think? Each of your comments is worth 5 Bake Sale Bucks!

I couldn't get past the second page of this book, so I switched to the Greatest Knight. So much more interesting. Can't wait to see what happens in this book.

I read the other two historical and loved them both.
