Marissa Burton Hi Kathy!
I had to smile when I saw that someone had recommended "The Wives of Los Alamos" to you, as I just reserved this book at the library a couple weeks ago!! ;D Our literary choices seem to overlap often - I finally finished "Call The Midwife" boxset, and really enjoyed it - took my mind off of moving, packing, unpacking, feelings of instability, etc. LOL

Take care,
Marissa


Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)
