Recently Read

I have just finished reading An Echo in the Bone, by Diana Gabaldon. This book was everything I expected it to be. It had murder, intrigue, history, romance....everything I love in a book. I am in awe of the author's ability to put so much historic detail into each book she writes. The length of the book, paired with the historical detail must entail a lot of research on the author's part. I am happy to say that she left me hanging at the end of the book, which guarantees a sequel! Yay! I am also happy to say that although the main characters (Claire & Jamie) are aging, she has transformed their tempestuous and lustful relationship into one of deep, unconditional love. She didn't leave me without a leading man to swoon over, however, for she has transformed young Ian into a man, and oh what a man he has become. I look forward to the further transformation of his character, along with all of my favorites (Brianna, Roger, Lord John Grey) in the next installment of this mesmerizing series! P.S. For fans of this author: A new Lord John Grey book will be released in 2010!

Sounds like a good book! Nice to hear she still gave you your leading man. I do have to say, each book should have that man you just have to have, but can't. ;)

You are doing great here on the blog world. Look forward to seeing more reviews. Before you know it you will be just as addicted to this as the rest of us. :)
