I am fortunate that my reading, and my writing about books I’ve read, has inspired publicists and writers and serious authors to send me their books for review, now and then. While I seldom turn down free books, I will be frank and honest in saying I do not review books I did not like. I am not in the business of telling anyone why she should NOT read a book.
If I had to name only one book as my favorite (and that really is a cruel thing to do to an avid reader) I would pick The Phantom Tollboth. This is one of the first books I have memory of reading by myself and it is a book that has been in my personal library for more than 40 years! The Phantom Tollbooth has survived many cullings of the bookshelf. It has moved with me several times.
This book review of author Paula Munier’s book, A Borrowing of Bones, comes as an offering. To those baby boomer women, and everyone they know. Because fiction is the home of creativity. Fiction is a universe of its own. Fiction is where we learn about ourselves and our reaction to stories, characters, heroes, villains, and all the crowded spaces between.
