The past three days I have gotten out of bed, moved to the couch, and read until the book I had started earlier was finished. Yesterday’s book was The Christmas Train, by David Baldacci, a sweet little story about a cross-country adventure by train at Christmas. As such things often happen, this very ordinary train trip ended up being anything but, and the spirit of Christmas prevailed.
Later in the day I started True Blue, also by David Baldacci. This thriller kept me in suspense right up to the finish, with enough plot twists and turns to make me dizzy. Whether you admire cops or not, this will keep you engaged.
And somehow I forgot to count the first David Baldacci book I read (several weeks ago), Wish You Well. David Baldacci is one of my brother-in-law’s favorite authors, and he sent me a box with quite a stack of his novels included. Wish You Well is the story of two children who go to live with their grandmother in Appalachia, and how they learn to care for each other under overwhelming circumstances.
One more that I read and reviewed, but didn’t count, was Eden’s Outcasts: The Story of Louisa May Alcott and her Father, by John Matteson. I read that during the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge earlier this year, and reviewed it here.
