You know how you read a book, enjoy the way the author presents the tale, and decide to keep an eye out for other books by that author? Well, yesterday, I stumbled upon one of those "other books". I began reading said book. It's proven to have, at least in these early pages, an unfolding story which I like, characters who interest me, and the promise of a premise which can provide what some folks call "a good read".
Then, this morning, over breakfast, I read this excerpt:
From The Atlas of Love, by Laurie Frankel
I have found another author who has touched my reader's soul, and clearly had visited my childhood bookself and bookshelf.
