Today id Slice of Life Tuesday – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
As we drove home this afternoon, I shut the book and already regretted finishing it so quickly.
I had been waiting and watching for “Bellewether” by Susanna Kearsley for months and months. (She’s a Canadian author)
I have read all of her previous books and loved them, many are a combination of historical and contemporary fiction, with a love story.
So, on Saturday, when I finally saw it in Costco, I had to buy it .I vowed, though, that I would stretch it out and savour it. Normally, I would read a book late into the night, finishing it often at 3 or 4 in the morning. This time, I forced myself to stop at 1.
I read a bit on Mother’s Day, a bit more on Monday. Then today, with only about a quarter of the book left, I took it with us in the car and read in between our stops. And then, I finished it.
What a consummate storyteller Susanna is. The back and forth between present day to 1700s America was so well done, with so many connections. I highly recommend this book – and all of her others.
