Throwback Thursday

Welcome to Throwback Thursday, a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books

Here’s how it works:
1. Pick any book released more than 5 years ago. Adult, YA, Children’s; doesn’t matter. Any great book will do.
2. Write up a short summary of the book (include the title, author, and cover art) and an explanation of why you love it. Make sure to link back to The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books in your post.
3. Link up your post at The Housework Can Wait or Never Too Fond of Books.
4. Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list!

 Barnes & Noble Overview:

A classic tale that has enchanted millions of readers worldwide, Mrs. Mike brings the fierce, stunning landscape of the Great North to life—and masterfully evokes the tender, touching moments that bring a man and a woman together forever.

Recently arrived in Calgary, Alberta after a long, hard journey from Boston, sixteen-year-old Katherine Mary O’Fallon never imagined that she could lose her heart so easily—or so completely. Standing over six feet tall, with “eyes so blue you could swim in them,” Mike Flannigan is a well-respected sergeant in the Canadian Mounted Police—and a man of great courage, kindness, and humor. Together, he and his beloved Kathy manage to live a good, honest life in this harsh, unforgiving land—and find strength in a love as beautiful and compelling as the wilderness around them…

Mrs. Mike is the love story of Katherine Mary O'Fallon, a young Irish girl from Boston, and Sergeant Mike Flannigan of the Canadian Mounted Police, who is a priest, doctor and magistrate to all in the great Canadian wilderness area under his supervision. Recommended by Library Journal. 

What I Remember: 

I remember when this book was all the rage in my high school.   I think it was high school I read it in; could've been Jr High.  Anyway, every girl in the school read it I'm sure.   We loved it....I think it was the first book I read that made me cry, made me laugh, made me really enjoy the gift of reading!   Thanks for this meme'; I just ordered another copy of the book to reread and love once again!

Peepers Open!

Ha! I was going to say, "I think someone else featured this book recently," and now I see it was Sarah! Okay people, you've convinced me. If two people feel the need to feature it, it must be great!

Great Throwback! Here's mine!

This book looks really good. Don't you love when just seeing a book takes you back to when you read it?
