To Set a Watchman

Last month I read 'To Set a Watchman' by Harper Lee.  It is her second novel, with her first one, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' published several decades ago. In this second novel more stories of Chief's childhood are shared, which makes me think that original manuscripts were used when Harper Lee's descendants decided what to publish in this book.  It is a good read, and totally captures the mood and attitudes of 50s society in the southern states.  Not that I would know, except from watching the news at that time! 

I have listed other books on my other website WordsByMontgomery (a wordpress one I created years ago).  I knew that I would not remember all the books I read in 2015.  It has been a rich and rewarding year.  So many books.... so little time.  I am glad I am retired.  Reading helps me continue to grow.
