beach read #1

this book was a surprise gem

"Lawson communicates not only the lovely awe and beauty of the landscape but the way its inhabitants function within it. Crow Lake is the kind of book that keeps you reading well past midnight; you grieve when it's over. Then you start pressing it on friends."~~~The Washington Post

I couldn't agree more ~ I have already "pressed it on" to a friend.

I'm in the middle of a Diana Gabaldon series but I've got this one on my list soon after I finish her up.

So I picture you relaxing in the warm sun, breathing in that great sea air, reading great books, reading for hours.

You must be in heaven!
