I live in a small town in a big country. Not as small as the town I bussed to as a child growing up on a farm. This town has street lights for instance, and crime. But kids still bike the streets in random patterns, the mayor’s youngest goes to the same school as my youngest and I sit on my front porch and gab with the next door neighbours, and there’s a good chance you’ll know somebody written up in the weekly rag.

It is this town on which I’ve proudly based my fictional Spirit Lake. Pride, and a sheer lack of creativity. I mean, I would never think of a statue of a rubinesque mermaid or million dollar outhouses or the wonky downtown intersection that requires the chutzpah of a New York taxi cab driver to cross.

Right then, I need to share my theme song for Connie. Like Ben's, it's Christian but I didn't know that when I found it. Instead, I thought it was word-perfect for how Connie feels about Ben at the beginning of my story. Coupled with Ben's song ('Mended by Matthew West') they express exactly how the two are entwined together.Here it is:

Lisa Hi. Thanks for the friend request. I agree...Kristen Ashley is a must read for all romance junkies. Gah! I love her! :)

I never saw the movie but,you know the ending, what did you think? Did you think she was just going to reinvent the story as yet another act of atonement? It seemed to call into question the whole impossibility of atonement.

Joana Hi Moira =)
Thanks for the invite!
It's true, i just love a good romance!
Atonement will be forever in my pile of favorite books, it was just one of those stories that left a huge impact in me, the kind of story that stick with me. Oh neither to say i'm a big fan of the movie too.
Looking forward to chat about books with you :)

Wendy Hi Moira, thanks for the invite.


message 22: by M.K.

M.K. And to think I was going to give the movie a miss. Goodreads fuels all kinds of interests. Looking forward to chats about books, too. :)

Quynh Hi Moira. Thank you for the friends invite. Hope to see you around! :)


~ Becs ~ Nice to meet you Moira - you're right, I am a big fan of romance and Motorcycle Man was a really special one. Looking forward to chatting with you.

Oh, oh yes. I just tore through MacLean's new one. A Rogue By Any Other Name

Here's my short but heartfelt review. (Scroll to my updates.)

Nisha Thanks for the invite. You're right, we have very similar reading tastes. So recently, it's been difficult to find good HR to read. Any suggestions? :)


Elizabeth (Liz) Thanks for the friend invite, Moira:)


message 15: by Holly

Holly *waves* Thanks for the friend request - I'm glad that we have many other books that we both liked. :) As for Game of Thrones, it was definitely not for me.


Laura the Highland Hussy There's a Moira in a Nora Roberts book called Valley of Silence and I liked her :)

This is the link-hope it helps:

It's surprising how often fictional Moiras--few and far between they may be--are irritating or antagonistic!

I tried to download Amethyst Heat but couldn't access the page through your website. :(


Laura the Highland Hussy Hi Moira!
OMGsh! I didn't even think of someone seeing it as their name! oops! But yes, it was just a character who was irritating me ;)

That was really nice of Jill, I hope you like Highland Destiny. If you want to try me out but don't want to commit to the full-length novel just yet, I have a free download called Amethyst Heat :)

It looks like we have a lot of books in common-can't wait to chat with you!

message 11: by Ronyell

Ronyell Thanks for the friend invite Moira! I'm glad that there's another reader who loves "Devil in Winter!" St. Vincent was such an awesome hero!


message 10: by M.K.

M.K. The best scene is where Thornton watches her carriage leave and whispers, "Look back at me." The expression on his face tells it all. I'm interested to hear about 'Mary Burton' when you're done. :)


message 9: by Jen

Jen Great to meet you, Moira. I hope you enjoy reading North and South—in a lot of ways it's superior to the mini-series, and in a few others it just can't compare to the drama. But I think it's up there with the best adaptations. :)


message 8: by M.K. (last edited Apr 20, 2012 09:54PM)

M.K. I really believe Harry Potter will be universal and eternal. My theory is that HP turned kids onto reading and that's why there's such an explosion of good YA novels...the kids just kept on reading. Yes! Have you checked out Rowling's Pottermore?


Neriah Hi Moira! Thank you very much for the lovely message with your request! :)

That's so cool that your daughter is reading Harry Potter- I hope it's something that can be passed on to generations to come. :)
Also I'm interested to finish the Time Traveler's Wife, I'll definitely post a little note with it when I'm done.

Thank you for your friendship, I look forward to seeing what you've been reading, too!

Have a nice weekend!
-Neriah


Heather You're right...we do share very similar tastes in our books. Looking forward to chatting with you, Moira! Thanks for the invite. :)


Lisa Kay Thanks for the friend-invite, Moira! I've heard of that quote, "I bought batteries..." I'll have to see if I have it added here on GoodReads. Looking forward to reading your reviews.


message 4: by Jill

Jill Hi Moira, and thanks for the invite! We do have quite a few books and authors we like in common. Look forward to chatting about books.


Joy (joyous reads) Hi Moira!

Thanks for the friendvite :) Looking forward to chatting with you!


Fani *loves angst* Thanks for the invite Moira!
