Read from November 02 to 28, 2010

I included this book on my genealogy-history shelf for the fictional protagonist Lyman Ward is doing something that I imagined doing some day. He is writing the history of his paternal grandmother. The book takes a turn from my own reason for choosing this book when Lyman reveals to his irritating son Rodman that he is really writing about a marriage. By this time, I'm caught up in the fictive drama with these human-like characters and the strong sense of the places they lived.
