The One Book of April

There was just one book in April, and I didn't love it. Our book club pick for April, it seemed like a good one with lots of votes from our group to choose it. It was also an NPR best book for 2016. Over the Plain Houses proved to be a heavy read, and only two of us finished it in time to discuss all the parts at book club. The chapters alternate between the perspectives up of a husband and wife in Appalachia during the New Deal era. It was pretty heavy, with domestic violence, a little bit of witchcraft, and crazy fundamentalism.

I had a couple of other books I almost finished during April and one that I gave up on in the middle of the book. It was just one of those reading months. May is looking much better already!
