we have so many summer books in common! cannot wait to read ann pachett - i just finished bel canto and it was brilliant! i've just started 'canada' by richard ford and it's already gripping.
Brie, I loved Bel Canto, too! Can't wait to read her latest. I haven't read Richard Ford for years, but this reminds me how good he is. I'm going to add that to my (growing!) list!
Great list! I've read The Rules of Civility and Half Broke Horses--both good books. Happy summer reading!
Most of these are on my list too. I'm especially hoping you love The Shoemaker's Wife!
I'm going to look into all of these! I need a couple good summer reads.
