I am a reader and book evangelist. For many years I have kept a reading journal with little descriptions of the books I read and dates I read them. Kind of a trail of book bread crumbs that chart my interests over a given course of time. This blog gives me a way to continue my journal and share my reading interests with others. My latest adventures in creating, dining, and traveling can be found at my website LindasOtherLife.com

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
I had read a lot about the Shakespearean parallels in this new novel with an intriguing title. And I had a student who was reading the book for her independent novel project, so I decided not to put it aside once I had started reading it. It is a sisters book - Cordelia, Bianca and Rosalind. They grow up in a college town in Ohio (?) under the scholarship of their Shakespeare quoting professor father. When their mother develops breast cancer, the adult sisters have a reason to reunite. I was a little disappointed in the way some of the conflicts were resolved, but the plot was clever enough to keep me interested.
