I love mysteries & always look for settings in places I know little about.

Hi Jenni. I can't remember a work of fiction touching me the way you describe, though I have read things that certainly enlightened what I was living at the time. This book sounds so interesting that I am going to look for it and read it.

Hugs,


Melissa

Very interesting question Jenni.

I can't think of one specific book that did that for me but I'd have to say books set in the S/E portions of the U.S. speak to me deeply.

Hi Melissa, it is great to find an enlightening book, funny how they turn up when needed. There have been many over the years. One was 'this Proud Heart' by Pearl Buck, another was 'Native Stone' (I think), by Ayn Rand. Have read both of them many times, though no longer have them. Love and Hugs, Jenni

Hope that you do find the book.

Hi Blu, Know what you mean about feeling like you belong there. Used to get that a lot with Francis Parkinson Keyes books that were set in New Orleans, also with Gene Stratton Porter books that were set in the Limberlost, which just checked is in Indiana - don't even know where that is exactly. Also love Mazo de la Roche books set in Canada. Maybe I was just born to be a traveller?

Hi Joan. Thank you. Guess maybe get very involved with books, not always, but some of them am so disappointed when they end. It was always the bane of of ex-DH, he read a lot also, but factual not fiction. Could not understand the attraction, as in he could not understand LOL Love and hugs, Jenni

Thank you for sharing that, BB. I know that I have read some of Anne Rivers Sneddon's book, but not sure about 'Peachtree Road', I'll have to put in a request to the library. Loved the comment about the sidewalks, that's exactly the sort of thing I meant. You can flick to that special place again and again. Another idle question, please, I was looking at the Bugfest photos for Savannah yesterday. Is the Karen in them, kreader who has Sophie? Love and hugs, Jenni
