My daughter came home from school a couple of months ago and handed my husband this book. Our friend, who teaches English at the high school, told her to give this to her Dad. I've been feeling a bit out of sorts for the past week or so, trying to knock out quilt orders while dealing with annoying household repairs. Trying not to fret about my upcoming surgery while still picking shards of glass up in the kitchen from a stack of bowls I dropped the other day. Trying to shake the overall disjointedness (is that a word?) I feel. Anyway, I kept walking by this book sitting on the side table. I picked it up on Saturday thinking to myself that I could use some peace like a river. Oh my goodness. My last two days have been eat, sleep, read, repeat. If I had just read the description on the back I probably would never have read it. I was hooked during the first fifteen pages. If you need a good summer read, this is it. You will not be disappointed.
