The Edge of the Earth by Christina Schwarz
"As I finish this novel, I think I want to cry. Yet, for sorrow or for joy, I know not which.

"The perfect blend of interesting characters, emotion, details of time and place, and action. My husband gave me this book to read so I knew almost nothing about it except that it's set in Big Sur.

I really loved it. If you love California's ecolog..." Read more of this review »

“She and Jon had been startled and a little frighented by his misery. What happened when you were married, she realized, was that, although you began as two independent people, you eventually grew in certain ways to accommodate your partner's weaknesses and let other parts of you atrophy in deference to his strengths. It was a fine system as long as it endured, but if you extricated yourself from it you couldn't help but be, a least for a time, deformed.”

CMT325 I adored "Drowning Ruth." I had written, and then re-written, a fabulous review of the book, which to my chagrin, I lost. The review I have up is nowhere near as close to explaining how much I loved that book! Thanks for introducing me to their lives.

Lynne Griffin I'm a huge fan of Drowning Ruth. And I eagerly await So Long at the Fair. I've just pre-ordered it online. Looking forward to reading your latest.
