Elizabeth☮ I have this one. Let me know how you like it. I just read bridge of sighs and was quite taken with Russo's writing.

Bridge of Sighs was the first Russo book I read and I loved it. I really liked That Old Cape Magic too. Russo's exploration of marriage and parenting was honest and profound. Maybe it is the stage of life I am in or the fact my own marriage derailed, but I found some truths in his observations, and plenty of humor to wash them down.


Elizabeth☮ His writing just carries the story forward I think. I will try to read this one this summer.
