home safe -

I finished the novel home safe by Elizabeth Berg in approximately 24 hours. It was that good. I need to go think about it. More later.

Okay, I'm back. The reason this book was easy for me to read so quickly was the flow. The plot moved along very well and there just never seemed to be a good place to say, "Okay, I can put that down for a day or two." Second, my Mom could read it. Mom does not like to be scared and she wants a happy ending. I love to be scared and could care less about a happy ending. This is a happy compromise. There is sadness, grief, a little mystery and, if not a happy ending, a reasonable ending for the main character. Not at all like a romance novel, thankyouverymuch can't read those. I made several guesses as to were the plot would lead and got them all wrong, which is a good thing.

I suggest it. I will also seek out other books by this author to place on my reading list.
