Beth Hi Andrea,
Thanks for sending a friend request to this fellow Goodreads author!


Andrea Downing Thanks Arletta. I think my 'to read' list is beginning to look like it may last two lifetimes. Let's hope not! Am currently reading John Irving's 'Last Night in Twisted River.' For anyone who's an Irving fan, beware...it's a complicated tale but it is about being a writer!


Arletta Dawdy Welcome to Goodreads, Andi. It's a great place to review what we read. I just added Mary Sharratt's Daughters of the Witching Hill to my "currently reading" list. It's not about our West as it is set in England of about 1620. Mary is a lively and unusual writer.
