Book #1: A Virtuous Woman

A Virtuous Woman (Oprah's Book Club) A Virtuous Woman by Kaye Gibbons

My review

No. 1 on my journey to 50 books in 2009.
rating: 5 of 5 stars
Have you ever read a book and felt so distant from the characters that it shocked you when you realized you were actually in tears? This novel, such a quick read that a devoted reader will finish it in one sitting, seems so benign and irrelevant, yet works its way into your heart. By the end I found myself shockingly gulping for air. This may be an Oprah pick, but it's a smart book that I'd recommend to anyone who can appreciate a simple story line and a solid tale.
