I finished Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan last Wednesday evening after posting it that morning. I actually locked up the office after work and curled up in a chair in the back room to read for an hour before starting the hour commute home. Once on the road, I let my Kindle read aloud to me. Then when I got home I finished reading the last couple of chapters.
It wasn't until after I finished the book that I logged on to the blog, and when I did, I found a very nice surprise in the post comments. The author left a comment. So since I couldn't find a way to leave a message via your blog, I am hoping that you, Kate Kerrigan, come across this post as you did the last one. I want you to know that I enjoyed the story and characters very much and look forward to the second book being available here in the States.
And thank you for leaving your comment. It was a fun surprise.
This week I'm reading Snow Mountain Passage by James D. Houston. A novel based on the Donner Party.
And yes, that is a lame attempt at a snow-like background in the photo...it's late...it's quilt batting...and I'm a dork. No disrespect intended to the actual members of the Donner Party, their struggles through the tragic events that befell them, or their descendants.
