What I'm Reading

Commonwealth  by Ann Patchett

State of Wonder and Bel Canto are two books I reread from time to time.  I am a huge fan of Ann Patchett, but take my time discovering her work and reading it when it is right for me.  Now is time for Commonwealth, a story of a family fractured by divorce and how the intertwining of the four parents and six children take place.  One of the children, Frannie, when in her twenties, begins an affair with a writer and in telling her story, inspires his next, wildly successful book.  Their family secrets are no longer secrets and confronting the truth forces them to come to truth with their lives as the know them, and even how they want them to be.  I'm half-way and loving it...
