It was a glorious summer that I spent with author, playwright, and screenwriter Sidney Sheldon. My love for Sheldon started out many years ago when I opened the cover of a “pocketbook” (that’s what we called them in those days) called The Other Side of Midnight.
This summer (July), Sidney kept me company in the Nassau Hospital while I revisited his wonderful and intriguing novels. In one week, I read three of his books that my daughter pick up at our wonderful library: Angle of the Dark, Mistress of the Game, and Tell Me Your Dreams. I had forgotten how books can tell stories of intrigue, love and lust, without getting into steamy sex (which I usually love).
Readers of the Hewlett-Woodmere Public Library, please give yourself a treat and pick up a Sidney Sheldon book. They are fast-reading, and you’ll get caught up in all the characters. Sidney Sheldon died in 2009, but his books and legacy live on. I hope you’re not bored with my review, but Sidney saved my summer.
Happy reading to everyone!
