Hello and Good Morning!!
Well what can I say, Rebecca was truly classic. I have to tell you, I was not expecting to enjoy this novel as much as I did. My partner John actually gave me the idea to read it as it was a favourite of his in High School. To be honest I was apprehensive because we could not be more different when it comes to personality type. I am out going and a social butterfly and John is much more introverted and enjoys that one on one conversation over wine and/or tea.
Rebecca was a twisted tale of love and was simply captivating. It’s really know wonder it is a classic. For those of you who may not have taken my recommend, seriously give it a shot. It’s well worth the read. Chapter 20 is the head spinner. I was like “Shut the Front door!”
It was that good!
My third book of choice is called “An object of Beauty” a novel by Steve Martin. John is also the inspiration to this months read and I appreciate him reading ahead for me to help in choosing the last two selection.
Here is a little about…
