Books On First Tanglewood Plantation

Dearest readers now that I am no longer busied by my class I have more time to do things I like. I have no looming essays or research papers, so that leaves time for fun reading again. Since finishing my class on 5/31 I have read two books and I am a third of the way through another. Woo. I thought it would be fun for us to all participate in a virtual book club. This will be a regular thing if I find it is something that we like. There are even giveaway chances for the selected book. I’m looking forward to discussing this book with you!

booksonfirstJune2013Books on First is a monthly, virtual book club that goes live on the first of every month. This is a perfect fit for book lovers who just can’t always get the book read by book club night but still want to share their love of good books with other people who love good books. To sweeten the pot, we have a “door prize” each week at our “meetings” and one of our “club” members will go home with a copy of that month’s book. (Kindle Edition!) The only thing missing is the snacks!

This month we will be discussing Tanglewood Plantation. Please pull up a comfy chair and join us for this one. Here’s what Amazon has to say about it:

Chicagoan, Summer Woodfield, is in for the surprise of her life when she inherits the family estate, an antebellum rice plantation in Georgia. Not only is the old plantation in ruin, but comes complete with a cast of characters–characters long dead. The discovery of antiquated love letters stored inside a trunk in the attic sparks uncontrollable curiosity, and especially a purposely placed thumbprint on one of the letters. When Summer touches the print, she is inadvertently whisked back in time to the Civil War, not as the mistress of the manor as she dreams to be in the 21st century, but as a slave on her own plantation! Trapped in the clutches of a devastating war as a servant to her ancestors, she discovers the forbidden secret of her inheritance, while a love lost in the passage of time is rekindled…a love that holds her hostage between the past and the present.

  1. Have you ever seen a ghost? What did you do, or what do you think you would you do if you did? Would you/did you tell anyone?

    • Gwendolyn T says:

      I have never seen ut a ghost. If I did I would be scared and excited all at the same time. And I would totally tell people, even if I sounded like the crazy lady.

    • Stephanie says:

      I am pretty sure I saw my Grandpa’s ghost when I was at 6th grade camp. It was super scary! And I just went back to sleep…to this day, I’m not sure if I did or not.

    • Gwendolyn T says:

      Stephanie how long after his passing was that? That is kinds creepy/cool.

    • Meghan says:

      It wasn’t a ghost, but I believe that my Grandmommy came to talk to me in a dream shortly before she died. I think she wanted me to know she was ready to go. And I told everyone but I left it up to them to decide what it was.

    • Nancy says:

      I actually don’t believe in ghosts, so I guess if I saw one, I would be pretty shocked.

  2. Athena Nagel says:

    I love books that involve the twists of time. This looks like a good one!

  3. couponwahm says:

    Sounds like good books.

  4. Books with a twist are always awesome!

  5. I wish I had time to read – I have a stack of unread magazines that are a mile high 🙁

  6. This is cool. I’ve always wanted to join a book club but never had time or babysitters 🙂

  7. mail4rosey says:

    It sounds like fun. I’ve always loved the idea of a book club!

  8. I do like time twisting novels. I’m never sure if they are considered paranormal or sci fi–but either way, I love to read them!

  9. New discussion question is live at Joy Makin’ Mamas! See you there…

  10. Some of the most dramatic story elements come from the architecture of the plantation and how it had changed over time. Are there buildings significant in your personal history?

    • Gwendolyn T says:

      I love how Summer came to love even the fountain in the end. I don’t feel that I have any strong connections to any buildings. I grew up in an apartment, where we lived for 16 years and was very sad to leave. Other than that I woyld say no.

    • Meghan Gray says:

      I’m pretty attached to the house I grew up in. My parents still live there and my kids and I visit them regularly, so I feel really connected to my own history. Nursing my babies and putting them down for naps in “my” bedroom has been really special.
