Reading Journal - February 3: A Little Romance Along with an Excellent Memoir

Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist

A story about a telephone operator, Georgie Gail, and a Texas Ranger, the spiffy dressed Lucious Landrum, posing as a telephone salesman/repairman meet, hit heads, fall in love, try to fight it and then succumb. All this happens while he is trying to chase down the notorious Frank Comer Gang. He is surprised when he meets up with Frank Comer himself which gives an interesting twist to the story. Overall, a fun read.

Who Gets the Drumstick? : a Story of a Widow and Widower Who Met, Fell in Love, Married and Lived Happily Ever After by Helen Beardsley

This is the book that inspired the film, Yours, Mine and Ours. As much as I enjoy the film (featuring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda--not the other one), the book was sooo much better. Maybe not as exciting (not so many pranks), but so much more depth to the story. Very pro-life and pro-family. If you can find a copy, get it and read it!

  1. I love Who Gets the Drumstick!!! I read it several times growing up and again just a few years ago! It is such a great little novel, and I'm happy to see it getting reviewed!
