Links take you to my reviews of Goodreads.com and asterisks mark books that have made the “Favorites” list.
Into the Forest, Jean Hegland
(while it didn’t get a coveted * (har har) I highly recommend this one too,
for sheer interesting-ness.)
Here Be Dragons, Sharon Kay Penman
Out of Africa, Isak Dinsen
*The Gathering, Anne Enright
(I’d give this a 10 *’s if I could!)
