My book of choice during my recent vacation was These is My Words by Nancy E. Turner. I originally read about this book here on Desperate For a Good Read (which I love by the way!). It was recommended by several people and then my good friend posted about it on her blog and I was even more excited. It did not disappoint! I really liked this book! You can check the links for details but I will just say - great characters, great story, great writing, great landscape, great historical fiction. I was sad to see it end.
