A couple of months ago I purchased two new books, a treat I rarely indulge in. In fact, I feel guilty buying new books when I have so many unread books at home. But these two books where both on sale cheap so I went for it. One of them was Child of My Heart by Alice McDermott, the book I've spent my Sunday with. I had read the first few pages before purchasing it, to see what the writing was like and if the story sounded interesting. It did then and it has stuck with me until now. When I decided today was the day to read something light but satisfying I went straight for Child of My Heart. Now, at 100 pages in, I can tell you it was the perfect choice. The two main characters are endearing. Though I think I have the mystery ending figured out all ready, it is not taking away from my pleasure in the journey.
I hope your reading this week is equally as satisfying.
And for the curious, the other book I bought was Lighthousekeeping by Jeanette Winterson.
