If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it. Then, when you are ready, pass it along for someone else to enjoy! Thanks and happy reading!

The book arrived today. Thank you for sharing. I have read The Book of Ruth and A Map of the World by Jane Hamilton. So, I am looking forward to this book.

Journal Entry 8 by wingbooklady331wing at Cape Coral, Florida USA on Sunday, July 15, 2018
I enjoyed The Book of Ruth and A Map of the World by this author. I found this book difficult to connect with, I couldn't become interested in any of the characters or the story. The characters were unlikable, the bossy mother-in-law who held her money over the family, the incompetent father who was ineffective with his family, and the two children. Then there was the wife and mother who had an affair and her nosy son who found about it when working on her computer. There was Elvira who hated being a girl and bonded with her father as both liked Civil War Enactments. I struggled through the book and finished it though it was difficult. I would have given up on the book, but I was away from home when I started the book and it was the only book I had. Atlas, I finished it.
