What I'm Reading
To begin with I could not get into this book. I'd read Anita Shreve before but for some reason I couldn't figure out where she was going with this character, Olympia. But, I persevered and suddenly it was like I could not read fast enough to find out what was happening next.
I don't want it to be a spoiler for you so won't tell you much. Time frame: turn of the century (1899-1900s) and this 15 year old girl makes a decision that changes her life and those around her.
I got deep into the book and liked how she was moving along to alter what had happened to her and then she ups and does something else stupid. (at least in my eyes) and it made me so angry. That's not how I wanted it to go. But, I still have about 1/4 of the book to go yet so I will continue on. That girl had better make me happy again!!
I like happy endings. This book has had so many twists and turns and surprises. Glad I stuck with it.
