I've just learned about also through the Barnes & Noble First Look Book Club discussion group.

As I meander through the site, I've been revisiting the book reviews I'd prepared and posted on

I've added my review of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane below and wanted to add the review of A Fortunate Age by Joanna Smith Rakoff

A Fortunate Age: A Novel A Fortunate Age: A Novel by Joanna Smith Rakoff

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
I enjoyed the book very much. It may be in part that I'd recently moved to NYC so the location descriptions and dialogue seemed very plausible. It is also because though my own experience is very different from that of the characters, I could relate to the various dilemmas and complicated relationships that the lead women confronted.

I had expected that I would enjoy the book but thought it would be lighter and frothy and was happy to find it much meatier and engrossing than I'd expected!

  3. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this
    site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that
    "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say that you've done a superb job
    with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Outstanding Blog!
