Sometimes volunteering at the library has added perks as it did this week when I was giving Jamie Ford's new book to read. This was a sad story taking place during very hard times in China town Seattle. Living in the Seattle area for most of my adult life I always learn so much from Jaime's books. Just when I thought this book had such a sorrowful ending I found there was one more chapter that brought things to a much better place.

I also thought the Author's Note where Jamie said the following was most interesting.

My writing career began when I wrote my parents' eulogies. I was an aspiring writer, fumbling for years with this thing call fiction, but too often I had nothing to substance to write about. It was only after I'd collected enough scars that I found the expository canvas on which to paint my stories, like the one of Willow Frost.
