Powerful, Impressive

de whisner (Utilisateur de WorldCat. Publication 2011-12-30) Excellent Permalien

When I read the New York Times review of this, I wasn't sure I'd like it. But one of my book group friends suggestd we read it, and I was swept away by the story and impressed by the author's craft.
