Wow, so I read another book by Eleanor Brown, The Weird Sisters.  This was delightful for many reasons, particularly for Shakespeare fans.   While the many references to Shakespeare are fun, what really drives this book, though, are the characters and the relationships of these sisters who do get to know one another as adults.  There is romance in the story, but what is more important is the growth of strong women.  It really is a lovely journey described, as the sisters are drawn together by their life-transforming errors and blessings in the context of caring for their ailing mother.

I gave up on a couple of books, mostly those about brain health and some YA novels.  I tend to read obsessively about brain health, so I hope I do okay in my own personal maturation process.  Unfortunately my taste for Young Adult novels is falling by the wayside, or maybe that is something fortunate, and perhaps speaks well of my growth. :)

My next read is Commonwealth, by Ann Patchett.  I'm really excited about this one.
