I have to confess . . . .

I purchased this book right after it's release and read two chapters. I set it down because it just didn't engage me as I had hoped. I NEVER do that. Never. But this time I did, who knows why.

Two years later, someone in my book club selected it for our September read. I opened it again and read the whole thing. It was one of the most charming books I've ever read. I thought a lot about the characters long after I set the book down.

To those of you who haven't read this -- do, you will love it. And just in case you get a little worried in the first hour of reading, keep going. It's so worth it.
