While I was at a loss for something to do, the doorbell rang and it was Fedex with a big ole' box from Amazon. Just what the doctor ordered! One of the books was this:
It is our book club's latest selection. We have been wanting to do a hawaiiana book, and someone chose this. It is a fictional novel set on the backdrop of Hansen's Disease and Kalaupapa. The subject matter can be a bit grim, but the author did a pretty good job of creating good characters and so it was good. Don't characters really make the book? That is true for me. And even if they are "well drawn," if I don't like them, I don't enjoy the book.
Another quick comment: Isn't Skype awesome? I have never used it before and now I can video talk with Dale while he is still in Tampa. Very Cool.
I'm off to get my day underway so I can get into the quilt room. I'm excited again and loving it! (Drat, why didn't I do housework when I was "blocked?!")
