About this author

Julie K. Rose is the author of Oleanna and The Pilgrim Glass, historical novels featuring complicated, compelling characters seeking to overcome their pasts—and themselves. Her stories evoke a vivid sense of time and place through a keen ear for dialog and beautifully elegant prose.

#2 is "Re-read an old favorite". Every year I re-read at least one of the books in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (and usually all three). Which book would you choose?
