Summer Reading challenge wrapup (weekend wrapup to come)

  • Dark Angels
    well well well, Karleen Koen has finally come out with the third in the Trilogy that began with Through a Glass Darkly, and it is a prequel. I first read TaGD 20 years ago (no way!), when it was released in 1986. If you like historical romance fiction, this rates right up there with the best. Seems to me that 20 years is a long long time to take to write 3 books, but, I ordered my copy of Dark Angels and it came from Amazon on Saturday. Review to come. looks like it is the story of the Grandmother / Matriarch. I loved the historical detail, and the story, can't wait to finally finish Lyre of Orpheus and Move On.

    I love Latvian Mittens, too. I keep getting it from our public library, but I really need my own copy.
