Book Report: Blessings

Anna Quindlen, columnist turned novelist turned columnist, wrote Blessings in 2002. I read it when it was first published and ended up reading it again for our February book club because I couldn't remember what it was about. Don't take that as an indictment of the book, it's more an indictment of my bad memory.

In a nutshell, this is a story of what happens when a baby is left on a doorstep. A young man named `Skip'--with a past--who's working at a family estate called Blessings finds the baby. 80-year-old Lydia Blessing--also with a past--still lives on the estate. Skip and Lydia form a relationship that evolves from prickly to something more.

Even though the premise is a little sappy and predictable, I promise you'll get wrapped up in the story and characters.

I"m a huge fan of hers and have read many of her books. I have not read this one yet, though.

I'll add it to the (growing bigger by the minute) list.

P.S.- I'm starting a whole new blog-
