Throwback Thursday – The House on Primrose Pond by Yona Zeldis McDonough


Throwback Thursday is hosted by Renee of It’s Book Talk.  This meme was created to share old favorites and/or books published over a year ago.  Today I’m going to be sharing The House on Primrose Pond by Yona Zeldis McDonough.


Why I chose this book:

Yona Zeldis McDonough was a new-to-me author.  I won her book, and when I received it I began reading, not knowing what to expect, and was immediately immersed in the story.  It was so interesting that I couldn’t put it down.  There were very emotional parts that brought me to tears.  It was my favorite read of 2016.  See my review here.

I was so elated that I contacted the author to let her know how much I enjoyed reading her book.  She was very kind, and since then I’ve purchased another book she’s written.  Unfortunately, it’s gotten lost in my TBR pile….fullsizeoutput_ae0
… but I have every intention of reading it once my review commitments are over.  If you like contemporary fiction with a little historical fiction included (the protagonist in the book is a novelist), you will probably really enjoy this book.  I highly recommend it.

Have you ever heard of or read any of Yona Zeldis McDonough’s books?  Please share your thoughts if you’re so inclined.


Happy Reading!!

  1. I did see this book around when it came out but didn’t read it, however seen as it was your fav of 2016 I am about to hop over and read your review and most likely add it to my list. Yes I know so many books get lost in our TBR pile. Laurie thanks for your comment on the Novak book. I know what you mean about being “too hot” for your taste. I can’t remember if it was so or not!!! I generally skip those bits anyway.

  2. I like the sound of this one…and the author’s name is familiar to me, but I had to search her Amazon Author’s page to find the connection. I read one of her less-known books (I’m guessing) called All the Available Light (a Marilyn Monroe Reader).

    Thanks for sharing!
