I read this book in High School and could not put it down. I loved it. There are not many books that get a grip on me and this one did for sure.
An inspiration book about the inspirational woman who planted my old church in L.A.
Another good historical fiction book about the black plague.
I thought the premise of this book was very interesting, and it was certainly a good read. Enjoyable, yes, but not one of Card's best works. I wasn't terribly pleased with the ending either, but if you're in the mood for an easy, quick, and ultimately satisfying read, then this is a good one.
I have no idea how I came upon this book and decided to read it, but it was really interesting. I had no idea who these women were at the time (I must have read this in 10th grade or thereabouts) so that now, with all the Capote movies out, my opinion of these women (Babe Paley, mostly) is entirely influenced by my knowledge of their childhood and...stuff. Weird. But cool.
