  1. I just looked up the description of The Eight, and immediately put it on my wishlist. Sounds so good. I hope that you are enjoying it now. Leaving Haven sounds a bit convoluted in plot, but heart-wrenching, and sometimes I do like a tearjerker story to change up the mood. Thanks for sharing all this.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
