FOF sister, Shelley, and I just spent four glorious days on the Caribbean island of Turks & Caicos with our men. We laughed endlessly, enjoyed huge (too huge!) buffet breakfasts and scrumptious dinners, talked about everything from Charlie Sheen to Libya and unions, shopped, and relaxed on the beach. Shelley and I also read like we were in a race. While she read Kristin Hannah’s Night Road, I was fixated on another of her books, Magic Hour. Then we swapped.
Shelley is a major league reader, and while I don’t read nearly as much as she does, I do love it when I get into a book. We were introduced to Kristin’s books by our beloved FOF, which has a partnership with her publisher, St. Martin’s Press. St. Martin’s authors are hands-down FOF favorites because they speak to women about the things that matter to us most. The characters in Night Road are brilliantly drawn, and the story is so compelling, that I started to talk to Shelley about the lead character as if she were real. “Geri, it’s only a book. It’s not a true story,” Shelley laughed.
