Read in July, 2012

I have never read anything by Jennifer Weiner before. I have seen her books in book stores, but I was never inclined to buy one. Then I saw this short story free on Kindle, and thought I would give it a try. I love short stories because you can read them when you are short on time and often they can have very profound messages. In college, when I majored in literature, short stories were always may favorite genre to study. Well, without giving any details away, I cried all the way through this story. I immediately fell in love with Ruth. The author explains the background behind the story and how it is a revision from a story she wrote years ago. It is also a lead-in to her new novel, which yes, I am sure to purchase and read.
