What a Great Book!

I just finished another amazing Kate Morton book. That's a great thing and a huge problem all at once. I loved this book. I got so sucked into this book. While I was reading like crazy, desperate to figure out what happens, I accidentally finished the book. I hate when this happens. There's no way to keep it going AND know how it ends. It always comes to a bitter sweet end. Kate Morton is such a great writer. I really can't emphasize this enough. She has the perfect formula to hold my attention. Her description is perfect, not too much (which I HATE because I have my own imagination) and not too little. Her mysteries are subtle and compelling. It is so easy to get in touch with her characters and to fall in love right along side them.

I desperately hope that there is another beautiful story developing inside her mind. I don't know how she could possibly turn out yet another wonderful book. Fingers crossed, she's working on it. Lucky for me I have two more of her books to read that allude me at the library. I had The House at Riverton waiting for me on the hold shelf, but my daughter was really sick this last week and I absolutely could not go pick it up. I am saddened to say that some other citizen of my county is now in possession of my next read. DAMN IT!!!!

In the meantime, a lady that works at the library found me a promising filler book. I've never read a book by Lisa See, but so far, so good. I started Shanghai Girls yesterday and I'm moving along at a good pace. It's the story of two sisters that live in Shanghai in the 1930's and even though the culture is moving away from arranged marriages, her family had no choice but to "sell" the two girls into arranged marriages.  The girls are spirited and desperate to live modern lives, but they also have little other choice, but to go obediently into something they dread. It's very interesting so far. Though I'm enjoying this one, I am still eagerly awaiting my next Kate Morton book!
