War for the Oaks, by Emma Bull (2001)
Bold Spirit: Helga Estby's Forgotten Walk Across Victorian America.
In the meantime, her children remaining at home contracted diphtheria and two of them died. Helga's walk almost broke her family and none of them ever mentioned it again, burning her memoirs at her death. Linda Lawrence Hunt has done a fine job recreating what is known about Helga and her all but forgotten walk.
The Hidden Family by Charles Stross (2005)
This is sort of The Godfather in a time-warp, and I'm guessing there will be at least one more book. There are some paradoxes if you are inclined to nit-pick, but I found the books to be good reads.

No Matter What
We share information about the books we've read or listened to, movies in either VHS or DVD format, and even some of the music we've checked out from the library. Now, instead of having your comments filtered through me on a biweekly basis, you can just add your own list of books as you read them.
We'd like you to start with the Title of the article in the Title box. In the body of the post, please include the author, if there is one, and a copyright date. Feel free to add more information if you wish--the narrator for tapes, etc. You need only add a sentence or two about the plot and why you liked it, and it's done.
Thanks, and I'm glad you're sharing with us.
