I don't do this often, but I am commanding my fellow Good Read Sisters to stop what they are doing, order a pizza for the family and hide yourselves away with this book! You all deserve a treat and if I could I would come run your homes while you read - this book is that good. It's unique - all letters - but please don't be put off by that. On the contrary, Shaffer is able to add an edge of humor with this device...and is she also paying homage to Anne Bronte and the Tenant...? [if you read it you'll understand this question] And you all know how I feel about Anne.
This is one of those great books that reminds us that the written word is a universal language that can speak to all of us, regardless of age or class. It reminds us why we read: to know that we are not alone. Enjoy!
