Alchemy of Herbs

Alchemy of Herbs by Rosalee De la Foret, is a collection of herbal recipes that help heal the body through food. It seems like very straightforward recipes, although I haven’t tried any at this time. I’m beginning to read more about herbs and am trying multiple sources for information.

Glass Houses

Another fun read by Louise Penny. Glass Houses tells the story of revenge served cold. A group of friends returns for their yearly reunion in Three Pines when a dark, mysterious figure shows up in the center of town. Never moving, the figure dressed all in black, stands facing the town with a sinister feel. After the figure disappears, and a body is found, its up the Chief Inspector Gamache and his colleagues to determine what happened.

Although, there is much more to the story than simple revenge and Gamache and Beauvoir uncover secret drug routes through the region. In order to effectively catch the criminals, the Surete must present a mismanaged, incompetent front to trap the criminals into revealing their plans.

Good read.

What Happened

What a depressing read. To realize that someone who can articulate so many complex issues and see fault with themselves and find ways to improve could’ve been President. Hillary Rodham Clinton really dives into what she believes went wrong with her 2016 Presidential campaign. Whether its completely accurate, I cannot say, but she has many strong arguments about why she lost the election.

While I agree with Mrs Clinton herself when she says she’s not the best about speaking about herself, she is quite good at talking political points and telling other people’s stories. While clunky in parts, the book went through so many different topics that affected her campaign and her career leading up to it.

Important read. Read February 2018.
