scant 4.5 hours puts us in San Antonio where we will be for a few days. Should finish the Baldacci book in the car. The book is getting better. That's good since it is almost over. Sock knitting is progressing nicely.
It will snow here tomorrow so we are heading out just in time. I see it is also snowing in Madison. I guess it will be rain in San Antonio tomorrow. I really hope we see some nice weather.
I just finished the book The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean
Dean uses Marina's mental state to construct a delirious dream state from which to conjure Marina's suppressed past and narrates a horrific tale elegantly. Readers experience the horror and sensations of famine, death, sex, cold and loss in great detail, but with poetry verging on magical realism.
This book gave me a look into what my mother's life was probably like at the end.
