Read in November, 2007

This book is so intriguing- and so deliciously written...what captivating and colorful detail...i love it....maybe even a bit Dickensian...I love it...This book is so rich w detail, characters, and excitement! I love it! Its dee-lish! The main character is a spirited heroine who really engages you and makes you feel for her and her plight...the characters are all very rich and interesting and the book really teaches you alot about the history of the period California Gold Ruch 1849, and South America, and China in the same period. A captivating read!

ANGELA Hi Linda-
I hope all is well! What have you been up to? I would love to get together after the craziness of the holidays...maybe we can pick a book to read and discuss...or even a short story...

Linda Hi Angela - Everything is fine with me. We should definitely make dinner plans for January. I'll read Daughter of Fortune and we can talk about it when we get together.


PS. Thanks for the Christmas card!
