A day late, and one post entry short...

On this lovely sunny Saturday of Easter weekend, I was thinking about my next entry while I was cleaning up my vegetable garden. I don't want to spend too much time inside today, but I wanted to mention a novel I happened upon by chance. The title is Property by Valerie Martin, and it was amazing!! I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in 1. slaves and slave-owners in the US, 2. women and power, 3. psychological fiction, 4. spousal abuse, and/or 5. an indepth study of a woman caught between "a rock and a hard place". The author, whom I've never heard of, is also the author of Mary Reilly, the novel on which the film was based. She has written quite a few other novels, and they all seem to be about different subjects, so I'm looking forward to reading more of her works, as time permits.
I'm headed back outside now, to go for a walk in the sunshine...
Bye for now!!

(I'm just figuring this out, so while I wrote this yesterday,I only figured out how to post it today, with the help of my lovely husband!)
