Here is my latest read:
I am about a fourth of the way through and could honestly just sit and read IF I HAD THE TIME. I asked my husband if it was wrong to pray for a snow day and he gave me the 'eyeballs'.
It starts out in Germany in the early 1900's with a mismatched couple who fall in love and migrate to America with the clothes on their backs. They knew no English and basically depend on the kindness of strangers to survive. They settle in a little Missouri town--by accident--and begin to build a life.
I am always intrigued by those who will take the risk to get on a boat and travel to someplace unknown to them in any way. No way would I go someplace like that....let alone leave my people knowing I would never see them again.
So for now....I'll just read about people who dare to do those crazy kinds of things. Just sayin'.
