I am sorry I didn’t post about August earlier, but here it is. During August, I read The Hired Girl, this book takes place in a Jewish household in the early 1900’s, this is the diary of a Christian girl named Joanne. She works as a servant and as a helper for their main housekeeper, Malka, who determined early in this book that she would stay because she is experienced. Joanne (who goes by Janet) soon falls helplessly in love with David, the middle child of the family after he finds her in the library at midnight. She learns more of him through Mimi, the youngest child. This is a wonderful book for anyone who loves a good romance and, like always, I will recommend it to everyone.
