In the past week I have read two amazing books, that I just had to share with you.
The first is "Half Broke Horses", by Jeanette Walls. It is a 'true-life novel' about her grandmother, Lily Casey Smith. I devoured it, much as I how I read the Little House books growing up. This woman had an amazing life, and it is told in her voice, from her childhood through adulthood. What an adventure!
The seond is Tracy Chevalier's newest, "Remarkable Creatures". It takes place in England, and is about a woman who became a fossil hunter. I know, you are thinking that doesn't sound very exciting, but in the hands of this author it is a wonderful story.
