What I’ve been reading…..

I actually managed to finish a book and start another this weekend despite the extremely beautiful weather!  Where the God Of Love Hangs Out is a collection of stories by New York Times best-selling author Amy Bloom.  I found I didn’t care for it as much as Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, winner of the 2009 Puitzer Prize.  Bloom takes the reader to the center of people’s live, exploring the changes that love and loss create.   The first set of stories is about William and Clare, two middle-aged friends married to others, who end up divorcing their spouses to be together.   Another set of stories follows a biracial family for thirty years.   Be prepared for some intense moments between characters.
