I recently found two novels that really held my interest. The first is The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soii. It's about a female photojournalist covering the War in Vietnam. I found it riveting.
The second, with a totally different setting and feeling, is The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. It was entertaining with a hint of mystery.
Other than reading, I've been going to the dentist, cooking with my new panini grill, pulling weeds, and babysitting my nieces. We are very much enjoying Spring weather!
