Hello there, and welcome to my book blog! I hope to become your regular book blog rest stop. I am a 40 (cough, cough) something bibliophile and busy mother of 2 girls, but somehow manage to find time to read!
also please tell us the name and author of the book so we can add it to our TBR piles if we wish!
My teaser this week is from "The Crowning Glory of Calla Lilly Ponder" by Rebecca Wells:
"Some of my happiest moments were during dance lessons. I was content to lie, head in hands, on the edge of the perfectly polished dance floor, studying my parents as they danced by, illustrating different types of dances. My mother's strength and beauty captivated me as she swirled across the dance floor in my father's arms."
I can't tell you how much I am enjoying this book. LOVE. Especially because so far it is summer in Louisiana and HOT and humid, and there is plenty of talk of ice teas and porch swings, and swimming holes. Since we are in the dead of winter here in Alberta, this is perfect escape reading. Not only that, Calla is such a joyous child to live vicariously through for awhile! I LOVE her, and I love her mother whom she calls "M'dear". I can't wait to tell you all about it when I'm done!
Clearly this gem has catapulted me out of my reading rut... YAY! Thanks for all your advice, support and encouragement!
