Best Book I've Read

by Connie2629 (WorldCat user published 2008-10-14) Excellent Permalink

I've been an avid reader all of my life.  As an undergraduate English lit major and I librarian, I have loved and read many novels.  Prodigal Summer is beautifully written with characters who have realistic depth, wonderful images and relevent themes.

Try it--you'll like it!
