This book is touching. It's about love: for your spouse, your home, your children. Although it's not as good as her previous book Sarah's Key, it was a wonderful read. Plus, Paris! How can it be bad?
State of Wonder was on every "Best of 2011" fiction list that I encountered. It was so engaging, I devoured it in one sitting. I always enjoy Ann Patchett's prose and this was no exception.
I hope you enjoy them!
