Blessings/book review

Our latest book for book club was Blessings.
I finished it last night and really liked it. It didn't take me long because I wanted to read, sometimes if it's a book I just can't get into I just put it off. I also have a bad habit of reading really fast and skimming a lot, so I often miss details. 

Blessings is the old family home where the rather eccentric last remaining  family member lives alone. She hires a young man  with a questionable background, upon her first meeting of him,  for maintenance at the estate. One morning he finds a newborn on the door step. There's the triangular connection....old woman, young man, baby..... You know; like a love triangle, the kitchen triangle, an isosceles triangle?????
No, I'm not going to tell anymore about the story, I never do. I hope to pique your interested so you'll read it! I'm anxious for our book club meeting.....hopefully we'll discuss the book and find out if anyone else liked it.

Thanks for stopping by!!!


  1. I read that book several years ago and liked it quite well. I just finished reading A Change In Altitude by Anita Shreve and it was a really good read. Different than most of her books and set in Africa which I found fascinating.

    It is still snowing here and from what I can see we have about 8" of fresh snow on our back porch- xo Diana

  2. I really like Anna Quindlen but I haven't read this book...yet. Thanks for posting about it, I'm always on the look out for a good read.
