The History of Love: A Novel

Adored this novel, celebrating the beauty of language, the endlessness of love and the many unseen links we have to one another... highly recommended.

Mentor: A Memoir by Tom Grimes
Mentor: A Memoir

Loved this book, and really loved getting to know the characters so intimately, whom I grew to care about. It did give me pause about pursuing that novel (as many of us dream to), but left me wanting to keep reading and reading.

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
Prodigal Summer

acordier, January 6, 2010

This book was incredibly beautiful, mysterious, visionary, the complex characters were brilliantly entertwined with the gorgeous natural surroundings created by Kingsolver, and I found the book both completely engrossing and very satisfying to the last page. I loved this book enough to read it 3 times so far. My vote for one of the best works of fiction in the last decade.
