If you need to 'escape' with a good novel I have one to recommend. Since my 'little adventure' these past few weeks (see previous post) I have had quite a bit of time to read and have discovered a new author--Susanna Kearsley. I just finished her book, The Firebird, and highly recommend it. I have discovered I can get most of her books used on abebooks.com so I will be ordering more.
I can't wait to start The Winter Sea which I already have!
