I was on my way to B&N back in January and was listening to NPR - Diane Rehm Show. Her guest was Geraldine Brooks discussing POB. I was so intrigued by the discussion, so when I found the book with the beautiful butterfly on the cover, I used my Christmas gift card to purchase it. I am so glad I did! Thanks to Anne, I found Book Buddies, joined and started reading the book last week. I had not intended to read it so fast, but I am finishing up today.
I am very impressed with G. Brooks. This is my third GB book, having just finished March and read Year of Wonders a couple of years ago. She writes well-researched historical fiction.
The book holds several surprises! I am looking forward to discussing it with you all.
