Sing Them Home

Has anyone read this book by Stephanie Kallos?

From a review by Nancy Pearl/NPR online:

Sing Them Home is simply wonderful. It’s a welcome tonic to those of us who look back with great longing to Anne Tyler’s early novels. . . . that is, those of us hungry for books with quirky, flawed, yet realistic and beloved characters who leap off the page into our arms and refuse to leave. I didn’t want Sing Them Home ever to end.

I didn’t either! Sitting on a display table at my local library, I was drawn in by the cover and the librarian’s critique. Set in southeastern Nebraska, I couldn’t resist picking it up as my holiday read. Little did I know it would keep me company as the freakin’ creepin’ crud settled into my lungs Wednesday, making it difficult to sleep. With regret, I finished Sing Them Home.

Not feeling like doing much of anything , hoping to nurse this cold into oblivion, I’ve started another enthralling book..


Read anything good lately?

    Busy reading (or trying to) Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. I’m directing it in the spring…such a lot of detail. May read the cheater and pick up your suggestion instead.

    Ah, I sooooooo love a good fiction read.
    I’ve put both of the Kallos books on my request list at the library.

    I discovered a new author over the holidays — Jeffrey Lent. His most recent is called After You’ve Gone. Here’s are some reviews
