I’ve been trying to work out for days what it was that really gripped me about this novel and I’m still not 100% sure. Part of it is definitely Susan Wiggs’ ability to tell a really emotional and moving story with beautiful, yet simply prose. Part of it is the uniqueness of this story and part of it is that it’s a story that truly could happen and one that deals with an issue I’m sure many, many people have before. Choosing between two men, when you love both but differently.
I’ve also decided I love Susan’s town of Avalon where Daisy’s story and the rest of her Lakeshore Chronicles take place. So much so that on Monday I went out and bought six more of the Avalon books to make my set complete. Now all I need is to MAKE/FIND the time to read them and the other zillion books on my TBR pile. And I’m already eagerly anticipating the next story.
So I’m curious… what’s the best book YOU’VE read lately and have you glommed (read one of their books and then gone out and bought loads of their backlist) any authors recently?
