Susan Vreeland is an amazing writer. I absolutely love this book. It's the true story of my friend Faith's mother and her life experiences after she went blind as a young girl

Susan Vreeland is an amazing writer. This is a true life story about an ordinary every dayFamily, of whom most people will never have heard, and it certainly makes one think -if this real life Family of whom she writes could overcome and achieve as they did - then we all can! I found it well-written (as always by this Authoress) and very inspiring. It's the true story of my friend Faith's mother and her life experiences after she went blind as a young girl. They even made a movie out of it, starring Richard Thomas and Annabeth Gish. I had a signed copy by Jean, but I made the mistake of loaning it out and it never got returned.

New York Times Bestselling Author of Historical Fiction on Art. announces. Vreeland paints her canvas with the sure strokes of a talented artist.

Susan Joyce Vreeland (January 20, 1946 – August 23, 2017) was an American author. Several of her books deal with the relationship between art and fiction. The Passion of Artemisia is a fictionalised investigation of some aspects of the life of Artemisia Gentileschi, while The Girl in Hyacinth Blue centres round an imaginary painting by Vermeer.

I can’t do anything for him, but you ca.Dr. Lipe’s words lanced the wound she had tried to ignore. She knew something was different with this baby. Alanson Perry Holly felt different, like. He could bend back as easily as forward and seemed to slide through her grasp. She slipped back into town quietly and tried to learn how to tend this difficult infant who would not eat and whose movements had an erratic discontinuity, as if he were spastic. More than the other children, his little neck lacked the strength to hold up his wobbly head.

What Love Sees is her first novel, published in 1988. Jean Treadway, a young, cultured New England woman whose every material need is supplied by wealthy, overprotective parents meets through arranged correspondence Forrest Holly, a dirt-poor Southern California rancher whose spiritual foundation turns despair into purpose. One fee. Stacks of books. Read whenever, wherever.

Susan Vreeland is an American author of fiction novels

Susan Vreeland is an American author of fiction novels. She was born in 1946 and in her lifetime became internationally known for her works involving historical fiction revolving around art, a theme that has occupied many of her novels. Her well-received novel The Passion of Artemisia was published in 2001 and was a fictionalized foray into some true historical aspects of the Italian Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi’s life. Four of her books are New York Times Best Sellers, including Clara and Mr. Tiffany. Her first fictional novel published was titled What Love Sees.

This book is Susan Vreeland's first novel based on historic figures. It is written from the first person perspective of a girl from a very wealthy Connecticut family who becomes blind at the age of 11 in the mist of depression. She struggles to create a real life while her family, especially her domineering father, try to keep her safe and sheltered. a biographical novel. It was made into a movie made for television that she told me (when she was in our town to speak about her book, Clara and Mr. Tiffany, our community read for 2012) was a work of love for these beautiful people.

The enterprising Larry Wyler, settled in St. Paul with his beloved Iris, and earnest Democrat out to save the world, sits upstairs and writes stories and lands one in The New Yorker, the Canaanland of all English majors. While Iris devotes herself to rescuing demented geezers and chemically dependent single moms, he sets his sights on literary prominence. When his first novel, Spacious Skies, becomes a hit, he leaves Iris behind and buys a Manhattan apartment with a fabulous terrace and moves into an office at The New Yorker among writers he admires and the great editor William Shawn.
Comments to eBook Love Me
In addition to his wicked humorous insight, Garrison Keillor is a bawdy man with enough rein on his imagination so that his plot lines always sound quite plausible. I'm a fan and I was not disappointed in this book. I often laughed out loud and often appreciated his self-deprecating point-of-view, again so pleased that Keillor dares to write (and say) truths that I will only think to myself.
Garrison has done again. So,if you've liked what he's done before, you'll like this novel; if you despise him (and thus have likely hated his work without reading it),you'll hate this one too.
As usual, he takes on the Republicans,the media, most of the female race, and the elite for our amusement. He savagely attacks what he sees as the elite right, including our newest senator Norm Coleman ("100% smile and 0% content" ). However,he reserves the harshest attacks for himself, assuming this novel to be auto-biographical, describing his various extra-marital dalliances and even difficulties with adulterous impotence!
He'll no doubt be criticized by many who feel his political comments are out of line, even though he uses the guise of fiction (including very thinly disguised characters) to promote his liberal views.
As a liberal,it was a delight to read the political parts of this novel, and thus no problem to read through them to the more hilarious difficulties he faces with his career and marriage. Reading it in bed last night, I couldn't help but repeatedly laugh out loud, resulting in some personal marital strain. Others of a more conservative persuasion may find the political pill so hard to swallow that they won't appreciate the great writing he offers here. This novel is definitely not about Lake Wobegon, but about what happens after Lake Wobegon has been left far behind.
Anything Garrison Keillor says or writes is entertaining---even the sound of his voice on his radio shows. Who would have guessed the problem he discusses in this book?
I liked the book but it ended to abruptly. I also dont like how only a quarter of the book is the story advertised. The rest is previews and small stories. Also it is a repeat of some of the authors other stories.

wonderful portrayal in inner development - beautifully romantic
I have no idea how to rate this product because the vendor,through Amazon, never sent it to me. They claim they sent it over a month ago, March 21, 2011, but it was lost in the mail yet they did not make the effort to send me another copy just that they were asking the post office in Virgina where it is.
"Love Me" is a remarkable book. Keillor is honest, transparent, funny, and sadly wise. This may be heresy, but in this work, Keillor approaches Twain in his sense of laughing through the pain--and incidentally, educating the reader about The Meaning Of It All. If this book moves you, you might try "If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him."
The book begins on a clever premise that just runs out of gas. By the midpoint I had the distinct feeling that Garrison was dealing with a severe case of "um, what do I do now?". His obsessive but dumbly implausible study of the inner workings of the New Yorker magazine struck me as an "in joke" between him and his buddies at that famous magazine.

And by the end, after leaving his wife in a fit of midlife crisis, and slogging through multiple sexual conquests (ultimately unfulfilling, of course) he worms his way back into his wife's good graces, where he slips into old age with little grace and less dignity. End of book.

Meanwhile, Keillor seems absolutely enamored with the premise that if you're a writer, even a very bad one, women everywhere want to sleep with you, no matter your marital status, how old you are, or how young they are. Of course, he might be right. I wouldn't know.

However, the fundamental implausibility of just about everything that happens in these pages left me continually shaking my head. It occurred to me more than once that this book was probably better for Garrison than it was for us.

Anyway, I started the book hoping to recommend it to friends and family. By the time I was done, I just tucked it away on the shelf, and quietly moved on to The Kite Runner.
