Sherilyn Sherry,

I can't believe you listed The Bone People by Keri Hulme. It has alwyas been one of my favorites. You truly will be a book friend for life. You are the only other person I know who has read the book and thought it wonderful.

I am in the process of figuring out how to use Goodreads as a resource and am putting together my list
--- would add Wild Swans, Bel Canto, Berlin Diaries.

Sherry I've read The Bone People three times! And I don't usually re-read. There are several people in my book group here, Constant Reader, who love it, too. Why don't you join?
