Every now and then I like a good, non-fiction, piece of lit. I'm reading this on my Kindle and its pretty darn awesome. This woman has got GUTS! As a widow, she makes her way to Utah to put in a land claim (with a 3 yr old no less) and writes back to friends about her experiences. All of the letters are real and the dates on the letters begin in 1909. As a lover of all things historical fiction this non-fiction history is making me pretty darn happy.
Other things I've read recently:
- Girlfriend in a Coma - Douglas Coupland. Slightly bizarre, but good.
- Change of Heart - Jodi Picoult. Very good. I really enjoy Jodi's style of writing.
- North & South - Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell Good. Very Jane Austen-esque.
Time to myself.
