The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert
A love story set in the 19th century.
I haven't read this book.
Eat, Love, Pray by Elizabeth Gilbert
I have read this book by the same author and didn't like it.
In fact I didn't even finish it, which is very usual for me.
A portion of it is set in Italy.
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walters
Is a love story and is also partially set in Italy.
I did like this one.
One of the main characters thinks she is dying but she is really just pregnant.
State of Wonder by Ann Pratchett
Set mainly in South America.
One of the characters is also pregnant. This one was intentional.
The Queen of Water by Laura Resau
Also set in South America.
The author, Laura Resau co-wrote the book with Maria Virginia Farinango.
It was a fictionalized version of actual events from her life.
Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally.
Another fictional book about an actual person and events that really happened,
Oscar Schindler and the Holocaust.
The Pianist by Wladyslaw Szpilman
Another survival story out of the Holocaust.
This one sounds good, but I haven't read it.
Which brings us back to...
The Signature of All Things.
Our original book, which I haven't read.
This is a fun activity. Just try it. One never knows where the original book will take them. Who would guess that a love story set in the 19th century would be six degrees of separation from a nonfiction book about the holocaust?
