"Hope is a coin I carry: an American penny, given to me by a man I came to love. There were times in my journey when it felt as if that penny and the hope it represented were the only things that kept me going."
"Elsa Wolcott had spent years in enforced solitude, reading fictional adventures and imagining other lives. In her lonely bedroom, surrounded by the novels that had become her friends, she sometimes dared to dream of an adventure of her own, but not often. Her family repeatedly told her that it was the illness she'd survived in childhood that had transformed her life and left it fragile and solitary, and on good days, she believed it."
From the prologue intro and the first chapter intro, it seems rather sad but, I do love the writing. What do you think, read more or pass?
I have this one, but haven't started it yet...so I definitely keep reading.ReplyDelete
I'm about 1/3 into it and it is very good - sad too.Delete
Poor thing. That's a good intro.ReplyDelete
I know, good story so far as well.Delete
I loved this book! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
I am enjoying it very much.Delete
Enjoy! Such great buzz about this book everywhere--I hope it lives up to it, although I'm sure it will because of the author.ReplyDelete
It's very good, happy I chose it so far.Delete
I haven't read this author in a long time, but I always enjoyed her books. I've been eyeing this one. It looks like another good book.ReplyDelete
This one hooked me from the beginning, enjoying it.Delete
Ohhh that prologue. <3ReplyDelete
I hope to read my copy sometime in this century. Lol.
I am sure you will love it. I'm still reading it but, a very good story so far.Delete
I have this on audio and will read it sometime this year. Thanks for sharing the introductions!ReplyDelete
I bet the audio will be great as there aren't a lot of characters to keep track of.Delete
This author is not a favorite of mine, yet I have read most of her books and enjoyed them in the end. So I will probably read this one, especially because of the Dust Bowl connection.ReplyDelete
I read her earlier books but then it seemed all she wrote about was "sisters" for a while so I stopped but, this is different so far and very good.Delete
I have somehow never read a Kristin Hannah book even though I've been meaning to for years! I hope you enjoy this one.ReplyDelete
This would be a good start Katherine.Delete
I think I'd keep going!ReplyDelete
Very good so far Greg.Delete
I'm intrigued so definitely would keep reading. I've only read a couple of her books but nothing recent.ReplyDelete
