Beth Kephart

I just discovered that Beth Kephart has a blog. Now, who is Beth Kephart, you may ask? To be honest, I don't know of her all that well. What I do know is that her memoir, Into the Tangle of Friendship, has remained with me for years after I read it. Into the Tangle of Friendship is about the strings and threads of friendship that make up our lives. I remember reading it, and how it spoke to me of my friendships at the time. I could relate to so much of the book.

I had always meant to read more by her, but as with so much in life, these thoughts got filed away as more and more books were released that I wanted to read. Well, discovering her blog today has rekindled that desire to read more. I've found that in addition to her memoirs, she has also penned several YA books as well. I picked up another memoir not that long ago at a library sale, Ghosts in the Garden, so I think I know what I'll be reading next.

If you've never read her, I can't recommend anything beyond Into the Tangle of Friendship, but based on that alone, I would say that she is well worth the reading. She just has a way with words. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Happy reading!

You are very, very kind. Thank you for remembering, and for noticing in the first place.

Wow. Thank YOU for taking time to stop by!

And you are more than welcome. I'm simply abashed that I have yet to read anything beyond Into the Tangle of Friendship. I have that and Ghosts in the Garden moved right to the top of my TBR pile. I'm looking forward to reacquainting myself with you writing.

Don't worry, please. That you somehow managed to find a single one of my books to read is a great and kind thing.
