I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

What a great book! Once again, Follett does not disappoint. If you can admire nothing else about this author you have to admire his research. I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't know much about WWI until I read this weighty volume but it spurred a long-overdue spark of curiosity and I found myself asking questions and doing research of my own. I am more aptly versed in the details of WWII so as the book closes I felt the ominous undertones of what was to come for the characters I came to love and hate, respect and disapprove. I am anxious to hash this one out with the ladies of my book club. I'm certain there were moments when I heard 'dum dum duuummm...' as I turned the final pages of part one of this trilogy.
